Preview – Election 2017

House of Commons

You might have noticed there is a General Election going on. If you haven’t, God help you.

Anyway, the polls open today, so if you haven’t voted already go and do so, and then tune in tonight to see all the coverage. BBC One will have David Dimbeby at the helm once again, while Tom Bradby will lead things on ITV, or you can see Sophy Rdige and Adam Boulton deal with the votes on Sky News.

If you prefer something less serious, Channel 4 have their Alternative Election Night presented by Jeremy Paxman, David Mitchell and Richard Osman, featuring among other highlights special episodes of Gogglebox and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown. On the other hand, on BBC Two you can indulge yourself with a new series of Mock the Week and the return of the controversial Frankie Boyle with his New World Order.

Channel 4 and Sky News’s election coverage begins at 21.00. BBC One and ITV’s coverage starts at 21.55. Mock the Week is on BBC Two at 22.00, followed by Frankie Boyle’s New World Order at 22.30.
