Jeremy Paxman’s EU Referendum debate has a rather eclectic panel

Well, the result WILL affect everybody...


Rick Astley, Delia Smith and The Only Way is Essex’s Lydia Bright are just some of the guests appearing on Jeremy Paxman’s EU Referendum debate on Wednesday night before the polls open.


Channel 4’s live event will be a 90-minute discussion involving 150 handpicked guests, consisting of 50 remain, 50 leave and 50 undecided.

Many of the guests are politicians like Alan Johnson, Chuka Umunna and Nigel Farage – but they’ll be joined by a varied, eclectic panel including Ex-On-The-Beach’s Chloe Goodman, TV presenters Billie JD Porter and Ulrika Jonsson, and actor Leslie Ash.

EU referendum night – everything you need to know

The result of the Referendum will affect all industries – so it probably quite fitting to have reality TV stars, politicians and a bit of Rickrollin’ to get the conversation flowing…

Europe: The Final Referendum Debate with Jeremy Paxman airs at 9pm on Wednesday 22nd June on Channel 4
