ANDREW NEIL 'IN TALKS FOR WEEKLY POLITICS PROGRAMME' ON CHANNEL 4

Former BBC and GB News presenter Andrew Neil is in talks to front a weekly politics programme on Channel 4, according to reports from Broadcast.



The programme will reportedly air on Sunday evenings, after the normal Channel 4 News bulletin.



Channel 4 declined to comment to Broadcast. Broadcast's full story can be found here.


The news comes after it was announced earlier this week that Andrew will be fronting a one-off documentary looking at the leadership crisis faced by Boris Johnson. In the programme, airing this Sunday, Andrew asks: is this all of Boris Johnson’s own making?



From the Owen Patterson debacle, to fancy wallpaper and the infamous, headline-grabbing parties, Andrew uses his unique access to Conservative MPs to take us inside the biggest leadership crisis the country has faced since the fall of Margaret Thatcher.


With exclusive access, Andrew speaks to the key players as events unfold, including Lord Frost, Red Wall MP Lee Anderson and David Davis, who all confide in Andrew as Boris fights for his political life. He will explore if Boris Johnson, the great political survivor, is now finished.



Andrew Neil said: “It’s the biggest leadership in crisis in three decades and we have a ringside seat.”


Louisa Compton added: "With Boris Johnson’s future as UK Prime Minister seemingly hanging on a knife edge – who better to examine how we got here and what could happen next than Britain’s leading political journalist Andrew Neil. This timely film underlies the Channel’s commitment to producing distinctive, thought-provoking and outstanding journalism."
