There will be no debate between the two leaders. Polls show the race for Downing Street has narrowed sharply with just a week to go.

LONDON – Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will tonight take questions from a BBC studio audience in York in what will be only the second such event during this campaign.

The programme begins at 8.30pm on BBC One and will last for one and a half hours. Each leader will take turns to answer questions from the audience.

There will be no debate between the two leaders as the prime minister has refused to take part in any televised debates with the Labour leader during this campaign.
