The debate will feature three-person panels representing the ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ campaigns, who will discuss some of the key issues in the campaign in front of an audience of around 350 people at the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh.

STV hosted a debate between Alex Salmond and Alistair Darling earlier this month, which was reportedly watched by more than 1.7 million people.

The BBC are set to host a second debate between the campaign figureheads on Monday. The BBC debate, broadcast live from Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery, will be shown on BBC Two and the BBC News channel.
