The polls had indicated it was going to be neck and neck between David Cameron and Ed Miliband, with little to choose between the pair in the betting to be the Prime Minister.
In the end, Cameron won like a long odds-on shot as he secured a second term as PM and another five years in power. But Miliband at least proved himself to be a good sport in his efforts to eat a bacon sandwich, recollection of 1980s computer game Manic Miner in a radio interview and late-night visit to Russell Brand.
Nick Clegg tried to display his sporting nature by dangling from a zip-wire and Nigel Farage had a dig at the audience for the opposition leaders’ debate in notable lowlights from the election campaign.
Emer Nugent also tackles some of the highs from the election campaign, with the Green Party video proving to be a particular winner and SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon showing there is no love lost between her and her UKIP counterpart Farage.
