QUESTION Time will no longer be hosted in Bolton this evening after BBC bosses chose to relocate to London because of Brexit.

The BBC's flagship political programme hosted by Fiona Bruce was set to be filmed in the Albert Halls this evening in front of a live audience but due to the Parliamentary tussles surrounding Brexit the show has been relocated.

The BBC has said it wanted to make sure its panellists would be able to attend.

A spokesman for the BBC said: "This week's Question Time will now be broadcast from London to allow attendance from panellists who might otherwise not be able to travel to the North West due to unfolding Brexit developments and commitments in Westminster.

"We are working with the venue in Bolton to find another suitable date and look forward to broadcasting there in due course."

Tonight's show will instead be broadcast from Dulwich.

The panellists will be Conservative culture secretary Jeremy Wright, Labour MP for Tottenham David Lammy, Mairead McGuinness Vice President of the European Parliament, Ash Sarkar the senior editor of Novara Media and Charles Moore a columnist for The Telegraph and The Spectator newspapers.

Watch the episode this evening at 10.35pm on BBC One or listen on BBC Radio 5 Live.
