BBC allows Boris Johnson interview on Andrew Marr Show

It had been reported that the BBC had told Johnson he would not be allowed to face Marr unless he also agreed to be interviewed by Neil too.

"He's running scared because he knows that Andrew Neil will take him apart".

"In the wake of a major terrorist incident, we believe it is now in the public interest that the prime minister should be interviewed on our flagship Sunday political programme".

It comes amid a torrent of criticism for the BBC, with the UK's national broadcaster blasted for its failure to lock down an interview with the Conservative leader, as well as being slammed for editing out an audience's laughter when Johnson was asked about the importance of "always telling the truth".

After the BBC's decision was announced on Saturday, former Labour culture secretary and candidate in Exeter Ben Bradshaw tweeted: "This is a shameful and abject surrender by the BBC management, which will leave professional BBC journalists absolutely horrified and in despair with an organisation where morale is already at rock bottom".

Mr Johnson has so far refused to commit to a one-to-one with Mr Neil - who has already grilled other party leaders. But this decision is wrong.

The PM was said to be eager to avoid being probed by Neil after SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn faced tough grillings this week. "The BBC have been played by the Tory leader and shouldn't dance to his tune".

Mr Corbyn's look dominated the headlines as he repeatedly refused to apologise over his dealing with of the Labour Get together's anti-Semitism disaster.

The BBC's interview with Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson is set to air on 4 December.

In response, the Conservatives complained to the media regulator, Ofcom, about alleged bias; threatened to change the public service remit of Channel 4 if they won the election; and sent their own camera crew to follow Michael Gove, the chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, as he attempted to take Johnson's place on the debate.

Mr Farage will be taking part in the podium debate, the first time he has during the 2019 campaign.

Labour has accused Mr Johnson of "working scared" of Mr Neil attributable to his continued refusal to decide to a pre-December 12 date for an interview.

Mr Corbyn is scheduled to appear on Sky's Sophy Ridge On Sunday.
