and live on Freeview channel 276
Thursday means only one thing - it’s that time of the week where figures across the world of politics and beyond come together on BBC’s Question Time to have their say on the latest happenings across the country.
The long-running show has been hosted by Fiona Bruce since 2018 when she became the first female full-time presenter in Question Time’s history.
This week Question Time will be hosted in Warrington, Cheshire. The town has previously welcomed the show in the past as it was also the setting of the show back in 2019.
Let’s take a look at who will be joining Bruce on the panel this evening as well as when and where to catch the show.
Who is on BBC Question Time tonight?
Bim Afolami: MP for Hitchin and Harpenden since 2017 - Afolami is no stranger to Question Time audiences, as he has appeared on the show’s panel a few times before. He previously stood as vice chairman of the Conservative Party but resigned from his post in July last year.
Lucy Powell: Shadow Culture Secretary and MP for Manchester Central since 2012 - Like some of her fellow panellists, Powell has appeared a few times on Question Time over the years. As well as representing Manchester Central for over a decade she became a part of the shadow secretary in November 2021.
