Media Mole's complete guide to the TV debates and big interviews in the run-up to the UK's 2024 General Election.

The British public will head to the polls on July 4 to vote in the first general election since 2019 - and in the weeks ahead, every political party will be doing their best to secure your tick on the ballot paper.

Since 2010, head-to-head debates have become an established part of every election campaign, with multiple broadcasters staging live TV showdowns between the senior party figures.

This year is no different - and here, Media Mole has compiled a complete guide to every debate and major TV interview announced so far.
