Question Time is set to eminate from Glasgow just weeks before the UK goes to the polls in December's general election.

The BBC's flagship debate show will see a panel of politicians grilled by Glasgow locals on November 7 - despite a storm of controversy over the make up of previous selections.

In a calling notice for audience members, the corporation asked for those who have been part of the programme in the last ten years "not to apply" to give "others a chance".

Those applying to join the panel will be contacted on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, with the recording to take place on Thursday.

Provisional audience members have also been warned not everyone who applies will receive a callback

It comes amid a storm of controversy regarding allegations of bias levelled against the corporation over previous editions of the programme.

In July, the SNP lodged a formal complaint with the BBC following a row over ex-Conservative MSP Mary Scanlon appearing in the audience during a taping of the show in Elgin.

However, the corporation's editorial complaints department found "no breach" of standards or policies in relation to the accusation.

Complaints director Jeremy Hayes said: “I have reviewed the programme and I can confirm that at one point after a number of speakers, some of whom were in favour of independence for Scotland, had criticised the SNP, Fiona Bruce did ask for a contribution from an SNP supporter in the audience."

Applications to be in the audience can be completed here.
