Mr Corbyn and Ms Abbott are said to have had a sexual relationship and even went on a motorbike tour of East Germany following the break-up of his first marriage to Jane Chapman.
He also warned Cameron that if he failed to deliver “a good package” or delivered one that reduced social gains Britain had previously won, “he needs to understand that Labour will renegotiate to restore our rights and promote a socially progressive Europe”.
