Earlier this week ITV announced that it will be broadcasting the first head-to-head General Election debate, Sunak v Starmer: The ITV Debate on Tuesday 4th June at 9pm.

Michael Jermey, ITV's Director of News and Current Affairs, said, "ITV's debate programmes will allow millions of viewers to see and hear the politicians debate the big issues facing the country. Many of our viewers tell us they greatly value the TV debates. We're pleased that ITV will be able to provide a forum in which voters can question the political leaders and in which the politicians can debate directly with each other.”
