With the General Election called, a major TV event that has been in the planning stages for some time will now be set in motion.
The live election debates that bring together the three leaders of the main political parties will now take place and details of these debates have been released.
Each debate will last ninety minutes.
The first will be screened on ITV1 on the 15th April in the north west of England, followed by Sky TV on the 22nd April in the south west, while the last debate will be shown on the BBC on the 29th April and will take place in the Midlands.
The audience will be asking the leaders questions directly from the floor, while viewers will be able to email questions in to the show in advance.
