Theresa May has confessed she has never taken part in the popular Japanese pastime of karaoke.

The Prime Minister made the admission during a visit to the far-east country when asked by reporters which song she favours with a karaoke microphone in hand

Despite being a fan of music – she told of her love of Abba while on Desert Island Discs – she said: “Look I’ve got a confession to make which may be a shock to you all, but I’m not a great karaoke fan.

“I’ve never done karaoke actually, I’m afraid.”

Karaoke originated in Japan in the 1970s and has since spread across the world.

Mrs May did at least tell her hosts she is a fan of other aspects of Japanese culture, saying: “I’ve never made sushi, but I enjoy eating it.”

And among those mocking the PM was Lib Dem MP Tom Brake, who said: “Once again tin-eared Theresa May can’t see the writing on the wall.”

Meanwhile suggestions have been made as to which karaoke songs Mrs May could sing, if she was so inclined – ranging from Maggie May to I Will Always Love EU.

It comes after she revealed earlier this year the “naughtiest thing she ever did” was running through fields of wheat as a child.

Mrs May was asked the question during an ITV News interview, and initially seemed reluctant to answer.

However when pushed she said: “Well, nobody is ever perfectly behaved, are they? I mean, you know, there are times when…” before making the admission.

She said: “I have to confess, when me and my friends, sort of, used to run through the fields of wheat, the farmers weren’t too pleased about that.”
