It is set to be one of the big moments of this year’s snap election.

As we revealed last week Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn will be on the same edition of the BBC’s Question Time Live, coming from York on Friday, June 2.

They won’t be on at the same time. But they will be quizzed by the same audience – and host David Dimbleby – consecutively.

Applications open

If you want to be a part of that audience in the, as yet, undisclosed York location, you can now apply.

Anyone selected has a chance of putting their question to Mrs May or Mr Corbyn in front of the watching nation.

To apply you have to fill in the form on this BBC webpage.

And on the drop-down menu select ‘York (02 June)’.

You can also apply by telephone. To do so, call 0330 123 9988.

Not everyone who asks gets a place, as the producers are trying to create an audience with a range of views representative of the wider electorate.

But if you do get the call, start prepping those questions. The BBC states:

The audience is a key factor in the programme and moves the debates forward; if called you will be asked what topics that you would like to discuss and subsequently to provide two questions.
