Robert Peston’s Sunday politics show will avoid clash with Andrew Marr

ITV's new political editor will begin his new programme on Sunday 8th May at 10am – airing an hour after Marr's BBC1 rival


Sundays are about to get a lot rowdier, at least when it comes to political discussion and analysis. Robert Peston’s move to ITV was a coup for the broadcaster, and the news that he might be going up against Andrew Marr’s Sunday show set Twitter clucking.


Now we know when the rivalry will start, although the two shows will avoid going directly head-to-head with Peston’s programme airing at 10am on ITV an hour after Marr’s goes out on BBC1


Some people watch sport at the weekend. Some of us have this.
