Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn face a grilling from members of the public in a Question Time election special to be shown on BBC One later.

The 90-minute event in York, which gets under way at 20:30 BST, will not be a head-to-head debate.

Instead, the two party leaders will appear consecutively to answer questions from the studio audience.

It follows the Conservative leader’s refusal to take part in a seven-way debate on Wednesday.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd represented the Conservatives in that debate, with the prime minister saying she preferred to meet voters than “squabbling” politicians.

Another Question Time special on BBC One on Sunday will see Lib Dem Leader Tim Farron go up against SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon. It will start at 17:55 BST and last an hour.

Both Question Time specials will be presented by regular host David Dimbleby.
