This hour-long programme will bring high quality analysis and insight into the people and forces shaping the daily news events. The show will cover a cross section of serious global and UK stories, as well as the hot social media topics that are trending around the globe.

He said: "We are incredibly excited to launch Context, bringing a wide range of opinion and analysis to the hottest topics from around the world.

"We will take a special look at the UK and US and what is hitting the headlines. The show will provide lively debate as we welcome a different panel of experts every day, ensuring we leave no stone unturned."

Context will air Monday to Thursday, 21:00 GMT, 10 January 2022.
