We'll also be talking to special guests from the world of politics and beyond - and hear from ITV's political correspondents based around the country to find out what's happening beyond the Westminster bubble.
 
Two academic experts join The Conversation's politics editor, Laura Hood to discuss the key election issues. We’ll of course be talking about Brexit, but we also want to get to grips with the kinds of issues you’d normally expect to hear about in an election, like the state of the economy and what each party has to say about immigration, the NHS and schools. We’ll keep you updated on who’s ahead in the polls. And we’ll also cut through the spin of what’s dominating the headlines.
