On Wednesday 12th June, Sky News is to host an election leaders’ event in Grimsby with Labour Party leader Sir Keir Starmer taking part and Conservative Party leader Rishi Sunak invited to attend. Grimsby is a key marginal formerly held by Lia Nici for the Conservatives.

On the night itself, Chief Presenter Kay Burley will anchor Election Night Live, the overnight results programme, from a 360-degree immersive studio normally used by Sky Sports shows like Monday Night Football.

Andy Burnham the mayor of Greater Manchester and a former Labour MP, will provide guest analysis alongside the former leader of the Scottish Conservatives Baroness Ruth Davidson. Burley, who will be covering her twelfth UK general election, will also be joined by Beth Rigby, and Sir Trevor Phillips.

Making use of the studio’s expansive arena-shaped space, data and economics editor Ed Conway will examine the live data on the massive canvas of an LED floor and walls, giving pioneering election analysis that will dig into the facts and figures.

From 7am on the morning after the nationwide voting, Sophy Ridge will be live from Westminster bringing viewers every development as the election result is absorbed and plans for the next government are made.

Ridge will be joined by Sam Coates and Sky News contributor Adam Boulton across what will be an historic day, as the nation awaits the next Prime Minister.

Sky News is available on Sky channel 501.
