The BBC has announced it will broadcast two prime-time election debate programmes, as well as a special leaders' edition of Question Time and a debate programme aimed at younger audiences and first time voters.

In addition there will be separate debates in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Today presenter and former BBC Political Editor Nick Robinson will host two debate programmes live on BBC One, one between Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn and another featuring seven GB party representatives.

The BBC Prime Ministerial Debate on Friday 6 December sees a head to head between Conservative Party leader, Boris Johnson and Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, live from Southampton.

On Friday 29 November, The BBC Election Debate will be broadcast live from Cardiff on BBC One and BBC Radio 5 live. It will feature a seven-way podium debate between leaders or senior figures from the seven major GB political parties. The format will see each of the panellists make short opening statements; these will then be followed by questions and debate. At the end of the debate the representatives will be invited to make short closing statements.
