Dr Chand, a GP in Greater Manchester, launched his petition earlier this month, which he hopes will force a parliamentary debate in the same way that fuel price campaigners managed earlier this month.

Mr Prescott commented on Twitter on Friday: ‘If we get to 50,000 signatures on this bit.ly/xmasprezza I'll post a video of me singing. Promise! #xmasprezza

It is not yet clear what his choice of song will be. The petition currently boasts more than 7,000 signatures and has already been backed by shadow health secretary Andy Burnham.
