While there will be no on-set audience due to coronavirus restrictions, there will be a virtual audience taking part in the show from home.

The show is currently travelling, virtually, around the country and tonight's audience will all come from Glasgow.

Debate Night presenter Stephen Jardine said: "Debate Night is the only place where people are regularly able to put their questions and experiences directly to Scotland's policy-makers in their own words.
