The BBC will host a head-to-head debate between Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn in the run-up to the general election.
The Conservative and Labour leaders will square up and go live in Southampton on 6 December just six days before the country goes to the polls.
Much of the debate will of course focus on all important BREXIT.
A seven party podium debate will also take place between senior figures from the UK’s major political parties on 29 November, live from Cardiff.
Boris Johnson was fired up we he ran to twitter and tweeted “I can’t wait to share with you all our positive vision for Britain!”
In reply A Labour spokesman said it would “consider all opportunities to explain our plans to voters”, which it called ” the most radical, people-focused campaign this country has ever seen”.
Meanwhile Lib Dem are furious as to not being allowed to join the debate citing “”another establishment stitch-up to shut down debate”
They have said they would pursue legal action against the BBC.
