Rayner will appear 10 days later on August 18 at 1:30pm. She will speak to Forde on stage at the University of Edinburgh’s McEwan Hall, which is also in Bristo Square.

And Forbes, who narrowly lost out to Yousaf in the SNP leadership race earlier in the year, will appear on August 21 at 1pm, also in the Gilded Balloon Debating Hall.

Forde will also perform his show “Inside No 10” over the Fringe, with appearances at Pleasance Beyond booked for 8pm from August 2 to 27. A press release says the show will “explore the dark comedy horror that is British politics”.

His Political Party podcast has over 9 million downloads and is due to feature Mhairi Black on July 17.

Forde has also voiced and written for the two most recent series of Spitting Image.
