Natalie Bennett may not have been invited to the live televised debates ahead of next year's general election, but she will be on the first Leaders Live debate tonight.

Leaders Live is the latest brainwave from the youth democracy movement Bite the Ballot – with the help of ITV News and the i paper – and will feature question-and-answer sessions with leaders of all the major UK parties.

Each politician will be quizzed on three topics by a live studio audience and the crowd online will choose a fourth "wildcard" option.

It is hoped the debates will break down barriers between Westminster politicians and younger generations.

Ms Bennett's debate will start at 6.30pm and will focus on education, the environment and jobs, with the wildcard option being health. You can watch it live via the below YouTube video.

Nigel Farage, Ukip
