The Conservatives, Labour, Liberal Democrats, SNP, Plaid Cymru, Greens and Brexit Party have all been invited to take part, with Julie Etchingham set to host the two hour TV programme. 

Who will take part in the BBC debates?

At the start of November, the BBC unveiled plans to hold 10 special election programmes in the space of three weeks, including a seven-way podium debate between senior figures from the major political parties tonight, Nov 29, live from Cardiff.

Mr Corbyn was set to join the other party leaders at the BBC Election Debate on Nov 29, but Rebecca Long-Bailey, the shadow business secretary, took his place. Mr Johnson did not take part either, sending instead the Conservative Party’s chief secretary to the Treasury Rishi Sunak.

Less than a week before polling day, Mr Johnson and Mr Corbyn are expected to take part in the BBC Prime Ministerial Debate in Southampton on Dec 6. BBC Radio 4’s Today presenter Nick Robinson will be chairing this head-to-head debate, as well as the seven-way podium event.
