Brighton is home to the South East’s two sitting Labour MPs, with Lloyd Russell-Moyle hoping to keep the eastern part of the city red.
His constituency takes in Brighton University’s Falmer campus, Brighton racecourse and one of the UK’s largest marinas.
Since taking the seat from the Conservatives in 2017, Mr Russell-Moyle has had a high profile parliamentary career, making headlines for seizing the mace during a debate and holding speaker John Bercow down in his chair during the prorogation ceremony.
He also made a speech in the house revealing that he was HIV positive.

Schools across the South East have been told how their funding will be calculated by the government.
The new formula, announced today to replace that originally published in July, now includes a minimum amount for each pupil, on average £3,500 in primary schools and £4,800 in secondaries.
For East Sussex the Department for Education says those numbers are likely to be £3,723 and £4,941 per pupil.
In West Sussex it's £3,677 and £4,756 a head.
The Department for Education says the figures for Kent will be £3,724 and £4,781 per pupil.
In the South East's two unitary authorities, Brighton and Hove will receive £3,858 and £5,026 for each primary and secondary child respectively, while Medway will receive £3,807 and £5,019 a head.
Education secretary Justine Greening says overall an extra £1.3bn has been found for schools, but opposition politicians say this isn't enough.
The majority of my schools are getting 0.9% increase. Most commentators say education inflation is at least 2%. There is no point having a fair funding formula if there's not enough money in the pot.'
