Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss will go head-to-head in another broadcast debate next Tuesday.

The pair will face off in a debate on Tuesday July 26 hosted by The Sun and TalkTV, following a televised BBC debate on Monday.

Mr Sunak and Ms Truss have also signed up for a Sky debate on August 4.

Contrasting approaches to tax and fiscal policy have so far dominated clashes between the pair, with Mr Sunak taking aim at the tax-cutting pledges of his rival.

Richard Wallace, head of TV, News UK Broadcasting, said: “TalkTV is proud to be showcasing The Sun’s critical all-live debate to decide the country’s next prime minister.

“This synergy between The Sun and TalkTV will give the UK a great opportunity to see the candidates put through their paces.”
