Now Cameron AVOIDS ‘blue-on-blue’ EU clash with Gove after agreeing separate BBC slots


DAVID Cameron will battle it out with Michael Gove in an EU referendum debate — but the pair will not go head-to-head in a "blue-on-blue" clash.

The BBC has just announced that the two political heavyweights will face questions from a live audience in two special editions of Question Time.

Brexit campaigner and Justice Secretary Michael Gove will feature in the first show, hosted by David Dimbleby in Nottingham on June 19.


The Prime Minister, representing the Remain camp, will take the stand in Milton Keynes on June 19.

The announcement comes after Mr Cameron agreed to feature on an ITV show on June 7 immediately after Nigel Farage.

The inclusion of the Ukip leader, who is a member of the Grassroots Out campaign, caused outrage among the official Vote Leave group, who accused ITV of bias — but ITV strongly denied the claims.

Sky News are set to broadcast separate shows featuring Mr Cameron and Mr Gove on June 2 and 3.


Another EU debate show will also be held on the BBC on May 26, hosted by Victoria Derbyshire in front of an audience of 18-29-year-olds.

Representing the In campaign will be SNP MP and former Scottish first minister Alex Salmond and former home secretary Alan Johnson while Tory ex-defence secretary Liam Fox and senior Ukip MEP Diane James will argue the case for Brexit.
