The first televised debate of the campaign will take place on Tuesday evening when Boris Johnson goes head-to-head with Jeremy Corbyn live on ITV.
The PM has teed up a feisty showdown by sending his rival an open letter listing the four questions he claims the Labour leader has "ducked" on the campaign trail. But which strategies will both men employ? Here's a clue.
Plus, here's everything you need to know about the head-to-head and further details on all the televised debates to come - including ITV's seven-way election debate on Sunday 1 December.
