Conservative MP Mims Davies, chairwoman of the all-party parliamentary group for women in Parliament, said it was "right" that Mr O'Mara had been suspended over his "vile" comments.

On Monday, Mr O'Mara apologised after homophobic and misogynistic remarks he made online in 2002 and 2004 came to light, leading him to resign from the Commons Women and Equalities Committee.

In an interview with Huck magazine, Mr O'Mara said he had made a "full and unreserved" apology to Labour MPs about the online remarks and felt "deeply ashamed" of his past comments.

On Tuesday, Labour announced an investigation into O'Mara after a woman accused him of verbally abusing her at a nightclub in Sheffield earlier this year, a charge that O'Mara denied.

Following the allegations of sexism and homophobia, an incident of O'Mara making transphobic comments to a constituent he met on a dating app has surfaced.

This is unedited, unformatted feed from the Press Trust of India wire. "That's why I think he should be suspended while that investigation is taking place".

Mr Corbyn's close ally and Labour peer Shami Chakrabarti - who was slammed for her "whitewash" report into antisemitism in Labour - has also defended O'Mara, comparing his views on the PM's thoughts about gay marriage.

The move follows public calls, from fellow Labour MPs and opponents, for Mr O'Mara's temporary expulsion from the party.

"He looked me up and down and said a lot of stuff that isn't repeatable but then called me an ugly b****".

The party is investigating "comments and behaviour which have been reported from earlier this year", it said.

In the online posts, Mr O'Mara used gay slurs, joked about having an orgy with members of Girls Aloud, claimed Michelle McManus only won Pop Idol "because she was fat" and suggested it would be amusing if jazz star Jamie Cullum was "sodomised with his own piano".

Before the news broke, she had described Mr O'Mara's actions as "unpleasant and unacceptable", adding that the episode "doesn't look fantastic".

Labour's Shadow Education Minister Tracy Brabin said the suspension was "probably a wise move".
