The ITV Leaders’ Debate looked like the worst episode of Take Me Out ever


Social media was awash with claims that tonight’s ITV Leaders’ Debate looked like the worst episode of Take Me Out ever.

Instead of Paddy McGuinness as match-maker, the show was hosted by journalist Julie Etchingham.

And instead of a group of single ladies, the podiums were lined by Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron, Ukip’s Paul Nuttall, the SNP ’s Nicola Sturgeon, Plaid Cymru’s Leanne Wood and Green co-leader Caroline Lucas.

Were any of their policies enough for you to leave your political light on?

Instead of listing reasons why they would be good to take on a date, the five ‘contestants’ instead squabbled over issues like Brexit , grammar schools and the NHS.

Usually episodes of Take Me Out include a few cringeworthy gaffes.

And the TV debate was no different – Paul Nuttall managed to get two of his rivals’ names wrong.

He referred to both Caroline Lucas and Leanne Wood as ‘Natalie’ as separate points.

Now it’s up to the voters to decide who they will pick for their vote.

Meanwhile, chicken Theresa May was blasted in her absence over her “weak and unstable” leadership during the debate.

Mr Nuttall and Ms Wood didn’t see eye to eye

Plaid Cymru’s Ms Wood siad: “I have message for the Prime Minister, who I am sure is watching tonight.

“You maybe too scared to come her tonight, for your U-turns to be highlighted, for your cruel policies to be exposed.

“You want this election to only be about Brexit because that means you avoid talking about the real issues like the NHS, the economy and the cuts you have made to our public services.”

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also boycotted the event because of Mrs May’s refusal to take part.
