Krishnan Guru-Murthy said: “I’m so looking forward to joining this brilliant line-up of people to capture an exciting and historic night. We will have piercing analysis, sharp interviews and all those memorable moments as the results come in. I think this is going to be one of those rare election nights we remember for decades so I hope viewers will enjoy spending it with us.”

Emily Maitlis

Award-winning journalist and broadcaster Emily Maitlis was recognised by GQ Magazine as one of the most influential people in Britain. Having covered elections in the US and UK for the BBC, she fronted Newsnight, and that interview with Prince Andrew currently being made into a drama for Amazon – A Very Royal Scandal. She co presents the award winning daily political podcast The News Agents and the weekly The News Agents US with Global.

Emily Maitlis said: “Delighted to be bringing The News Agents to the heart of Channel 4 on this important night – and to work with such an incredible cast of people. I cannot wait.”

Alastair Campbell

Alastair Campbell is a podcaster, writer and strategist best known for his role as Tony Blair’s spokesman, press secretary and director of communications and strategy. Still active in Labour politics, he now splits his time between hosting The Rest Is Politics, writing, speaking, charitable fundraising, politics and campaigning.

Alastair Campbell said: “The success and continuing growth of The Rest Is Politics podcast has shown there is a huge appetite for serious sensible debate and on what promises to be one of the most important and exciting election nights in many a year I am delighted that Rory Stewart and I will be part of Channel 4’s coverage.”

Rory Stewart

Rory Stewart is a podcaster, diplomat, author, explorer, academic, and former politician – serving in successive Conservative governments as Minister for Environment, Minister of State for International Development, Minister of State for Africa, and Minister of State for Prisons. Rory is the host of The Rest Is Politics podcast, as well as being a senior fellow at Yale University’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, where he teaches politics and international relations.

Rory Stewart said: “I’m really looking forward to bringing the podcast to life on TV with Alastair live on Channel 4. Hopefully we can still disagree agreeably even in the heat of the electoral madness.”
