Former Chancellor Rishi Sunak will be interviewed by the BBC’s Nick Robinson on Wednesday evening as he looks to close the gap in the Tory leadership race.

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss is the firm favourite to succeed Boris Johnson at No 10, with a new poll of Conservative members putting her 26 points ahead.

However, Mr Sunak has shown no sign of standing aside and will hope to boost his dwindling chances of winning the top job on a prime-time television slot this evening.

Here’s everything you need to know about the interview.

What time is Rishi Sunak’s BBC interview?

The interview will be shown at 7pm on BBC One, in a special programme called Our Next Prime Minister: The Interviews.

If you want to watch online, you can find BBC One on BBC iPlayer here.

What should we expect?

The BBC synopsis reads: “What policies would Rishi Sunak pursue as prime minister if he wins the Conservative leadership election? Nick Robinson interviews the former chancellor.”

Mr Sunak is attempting to convince the 175,000-strong Tory membership that he is the more likely of the two to win a general election against Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer.

He has most commonly clashed with Ms Truss over taxes. She has pledged to immediately make tax cuts, while the former Chancellor has labelled such plans a “fairy tale”.

Mr Sunak has most recently tried to drum up support by promising households more support with soaring energy prices.

It comes ahead of energy regulator Ofgem announcing the latest increase to the price cap on 26 August, with annual bills expected to rise to over £3,500 in October, and £4,200 by January, according industry analysts Cornwall Insight.

In a statement, Mr Sunak said he wanted to keep “any one-off borrowing to an absolute minimum” and would “first seek efficiency savings across Whitehall to provide direct support for families to help with the unprecedented situation we face”.

However, Mr Truss’ camp labelled his pledge a U-turn, saying: “Three weeks ago he was saying more borrowing was irresponsible and inflationary – has he changed his mind? How can Rishi’s borrowing not be inflationary, but Liz’s tax cuts are? Intellectually it’s as watertight as a sieve.”
