Will Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn take part?

The two men vying for the keys to Number 10 will be the only participants in this debate.

All the other parties will be relegated to sidelines as the Tory PM and Labour Leader once again butt horns in front of a live studio audience.

After the first TV debate on November 19 Corbyn was mocked over his Brexit policy by a live television audience, after he refused to say whether he thought Britain should leave the EU or remain. Boris, meanwhile, faced criticism over the issue of his honesty.

According to a snap poll by YouGov, 51 per cent of viewers thought the Prime Minister performed better than Mr Corbyn.

Where is the BBC Prime Minsiterial Debate being held?

The debate will be held in Southampton.

After this one BBC Scotland is set to broadcast its Scotland Leaders debate live from Glasgow on Tuesday December 10.

On the same night at 10.45pm, Northern Ireland party leaders will also be debating in front of a studio audience.
