QUESTION Time will replace a studio audience with viewers' questions from social media again as creators of the BBC show adjust to the coronavirus lockdown. 

The programme, which airs tonight at 8pm on BBC One from Uxbridge in West London, will feature viewers’ questions from social media which will be put to the panel by host Fiona Bruce.

The panel was initially just four people but Ruby Wax was added at the last minute. The panel includes:

  • Northern Ireland secretary Brandon Lewis who campaigned for Remain in the EU referendum but following the result said he would now vote Leave
  • Shadow chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Rachel Reeves
  • Professor of experimental medicine at Imperial College Peter Openshaw who is advising the Government on coronavirus 
  • Rapper, author and activist Darren McGarvey (or Loki) who openly supports indyref2 
  • Actress and comedian Ruby Wax
