Will Young to take on politicians on ‘Question Time’

Reality TV popstar becomes a political pundit

Will Young is to appear on BBC1‘s flagship political show ‘Question Time’ next February.

Young was approached to appear on the programme, hosted by David Dimbleby, after he admitted being a fan to BBC Radio 5 Live‘s Simon Mayo in October.

‘Question Time’‘s editor Gill Penlington then invited him to appear on the show, reports BBC News.

Speaking of his upcoming appearance, Young said: “As an avid viewer of ‘Question Time’, being in the hot seat is something I’ve always wanted to do. As the day gets closer rest assured I’ll be swotting up on the hot topics.”

Before winning reality TV show ‘Pop Idol’ in 2002, the singer gained a degree in politics from Exeter University.
