The line-up of politicians and panelists who will be grilled on tomorrow night's Question Time, filmed in Carlisle, have been revealed.

Conservative MSP Ruth Davidson and UKIP's Paul Nuttall are among those who will answer questions put to them by a Cumbrian audience when the BBC One debate programme is broadcast from The Sands Centre.

They will be joined by Labour's Lisa Nandy, Len McCluskey, of the Unite union, and Kate Andrews of the Institute of Economic Affairs.

The programme, hosted by David Dimbleby and which features guests from the world of politics and the media, is being aired tomorrow at 10.45pm.

The audience is a key factor in the programme and moves the debates forward.

Guests - who recently included John McDonnell, Liz Truss and Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes - will answer pre-selected questions put to them by member of the audience.

Members of the public could apply for a spot in the audience through the BBC and tickers are not available from the venue.

Viewers don't have to be in the audience to have their say and can take part in the debate during the programme by sending a text message to 83981 or via social media using the hashtag #BBCQT.

Well, I have to say that was one of the most boring Question Time programmes ever.

the choice of panel shows that the BBC is still ruled from London, just like the London Government who have no idea of life in rural Cumbria.

Glad I'm not going to be there. Don't want to have to breathe the same air as anyone from the disgusting xenophobic racist Brexit crew

Who picked this lot? I tried to suggest MP Trudy Harrison and Elected Mayor Mike Starkie who are both qualified Cumbrians and capable of answering the likely questions on the current NHS catastrophe, the now likely new nuclear build failure and the road travel improvements required IF new build does happen.
