Nominations have closed — if you wanted to be in the running for Mayor of London, it's now too late. 12 candidates will be on the ballot paper on 5 May, and this is who they are.

  • Sian Berry, Green
  • David Furness, BNP
  • George Galloway, Respect — though the party's appearing on the ballot as "Respect (George Galloway)", just in case you weren't sure
  • Paul Golding, Britain First
  • Zac Goldsmith, Conservative
  • Lee Harris, Cannabis Is Safer Than Alcohol
  • Sadiq Khan, Labour
  • Ankit Love, One Love Party — this appears to be a party founded by a former film director
  • Caroline Pidgeon, Liberal Democrat
  • Sophie Walker, Women's Equality Party
  • Peter Whittle, UKIP
  • Prince Zylinski, Independent — this is the chap who challenged Nigel Farage to a duel before last year's general election...

Them's your choices. Who do you fancy?
