The Agenda (series three)
The guests joining ITV News Political Editor Tom Bradby for the first episode of the new series of The Agenda on ITV tonight are: Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, actress Andrea Riseborough, comedian David Baddiel and columnist Jane Moore.Fronted by ITV News Political Editor Tom Bradby, this third series of the show features an unchanged format of four studio guests discussing the coming week’s agenda, with topics ranging from politics to popular culture.
Filmed in front of a studio audience at The Hospital Club in Central London, insightful discussion is interspersed with mini video packages to add humour and illustrate the week's key talking points.
Guests in series two, which saw record ratings for the programme, included all three party leaders - David Cameron, Nick Clegg, Ed Miliband - along with Harriet Harman, Boris Johnson, William Hague, Hugh Grant, Patrick Stewart, Fiona Shaw and Mariella Frostrup. David Cameron’s appearance marked the first time that a serving British Prime Minister had appeared on a panel show.
