Who will be hosting?

The special will be hosted by Fiona Bruce – she has said she doesn’t want the show to descend into a “bear pit,” the BBC reports.

Fiona Bruce says: “Question Time has a proud history of giving the public – the voters – the chance to put their points and questions directly to their elected representatives.

“That’s never more important than during an election campaign. I’m very much looking forward to these special programmes,” reports inews.

 

What is Fiona Bruce’s role on Question Time?

Fiona Bruce said it was “an honour” to be confirmed as the new host of BBC One’s Question Time.

Question Time’s former host David Dimbleby presented his final show in December 2018 as Parliament went into Christmas recess.

Bruce said: “It is an honour to be asked to take on one of the great political programmes of the BBC, particularly at a time of such historic change for the UK and tumult at Westminster.

“For many years, Question Time has been presented by one of my television heroes so I am thrilled and not a little daunted to be stepping into his shoes.”

Bruce hosted her first Question Time on January 10, 2019.
