Senior figures from the Conservatives, Labour, Liberal Democrats, SNP, Plaid Cymru, Green Party and UKIP are expected to take part.

Seven senior politicians will face-off in Cambridge in the run-up to the snap General Election on June 8.

The debate will be held on May 31, moderated by Mishal Husain.

Jonathan Munro, head of BBC Newsgathering, said: “It is firmly in the public interest for audiences to hear from those seeking election. We know they connect with these formats because they are a public moment to focus on and audience members from all across the country get the chance to ask politicians their own questions.”
