Boris Johnson is appearing in a much-anticipated hearing regarding the "Partygate" scandal.

The hearing will see the House of Commons Privileges committee session on the legality of activities in 10 Downing Street under Covid regulations covering Covid rule-breaking parties, with evidence from former prime minister Boris Johnson.

The committee is being chaired by Labour MP Harriet Harman and will see Johnson questioned on whether he intentionally misled Parliament over the conduct of Downing Street staff during Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.

The committee has emphasised its independence and purpose to decide whether Johnson intentionally misled the House of Commons and whether he corrected the record in the house in good time.

Johnson has accepted that he misled the House of Commons but denies he did so deliberately, arguing that he relied on the advice of senior staff.

The former PM has sworn to "tell the truth and nothing but the truth" on a bible and claimed that he, "hand on heart, did not lie to the house".

So, how can you watch the House of Commons Privileges committee session?
