Opening the show, Ms Kuenssberg said: ‘We are here to ask important questions, the ones that you want answers to from the people who make decisions that affect us all. We will check out what is true and what is not.

‘But we're going to try and have more conversations than arguments. Now, I cannot promise you that's always what's going to happen. But we will also sometimes have a bit of fun.’

The shows first guests included Labour MP Emily Thornberry, comedian Joe Lycett, and the final two Conservative leadership hopefuls, Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss.
