Robert Peston returns to ITV this weekend with a new run of his live current affairs programme, providing viewers with what the broadcaster describes as ‘an intelligent and lively approach to politics every Sunday’.
Providing a fresh perspective on the major stories of the day with a stellar line-up of guests from across the political spectrum as well as cultural figures, Peston on Sunday introduces elements from the arts, literature, and humour to add to the discourse on offer.
Co-presenter Allegra Stratton draws on the key debates and insights from social media to fuel the conversation in the studio and online, with updates from viewers, experts and key-players throughout the programme.
Guests so far have included Theresa May, David Cameron, Boris Johnson, Philip Hammond, George Osborne, Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell, Nicola Sturgeon, Nigel Farage, and Sadiq Khan – as well as Trevor Noah, Romesh Ranganathan, Nina Conti, Jan Ravens, Bill Bailey and Louis Theroux from the world of entertainment and the arts.
“With Theresa May’s promise to trigger Article 50 by the end of March, effectively securing a Brexit she didn’t want, and the Labour Party going through the worst identity crisis since its creation, politics is set to become yet more important and historic in 2017. With Peston On Sunday I aim to get to the heart of the big stories of the moment through lively debate, delivering unique insights into the major political issues, and looking beyond Westminster at matters affecting everyone.” – Robert Peston
