O’Leary to host teen Question Time
X Factor host Dermot O'Leary is to front a youth-oriented Question Time for the BBC in a bid to engage a younger generation with politics.
O'Leary will host First Time Voters' Question Time for BBC3 next month in front of an audience which has not previously cast their vote in an election.
The programme will feature representatives from “the main political parties”, although names will be finalised nearer to the live broadcast on March 3.
O'Leary revealed last month he had been in discussions with the BBC to present a political show.
The programme, which is to be filmed at Canary Wharf, east London, will come shortly before a general election. Although a date has yet to be announced, it is being tipped for May.
