The BBC’s topical debate show, where guests from the world of politics and media answer questions made by members of the public, is set to come to town.

Question Time presented by David Dimbleby will be filmed in Ilford on Thursday, April 7.

A spokeswoman for the BBC said it was too early to say who would be joining the panel but details would be released a day or two before the show via Twitter.

The location of the show is also not revealed until the night the show is recorded.
