TONIGHT’S BBC Question Time will have no studio audience – nor will any episode of the show for the foreseeable as the UK deals with coronavirus.

On tonight’s show, which will air at the new time of 8pm on BBC One, will feature viewers’ questions from social media which will be put to the panel by host Fiona Bruce.

UK Government Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick will represent the Tories, while former Labour leadership candidate Emily Thornberry will also be on the show.

Rounding out the panel will be businessman Humphrey Cobbold, CEO of Pure Gym, and Richard Horton, editor-in-chief of medical journal The Lancet.

Last week’s Question Time was the first to be filmed without a studio audience and to air at the new start time after the UK and Scottish governments ramped up their response to the outbreak of Covid-19.
