RISHI Sunak is set to appear on a GB News show as he steps in as a temporary replacement for Jacob Rees-Mogg.

The right-wing broadcaster has previously fallen foul of Ofcom rules on due impartiality after airing a pre-recorded interview with Chancellor Jeremy Hunt, which was conducted by two Tory MPs.

In total, four current Tory MPs are on the station’s presenting roster: Jacob Rees-Mogg, Lee Anderson, Philip Davies, and Boris Johnson.

The Tory MP Esther McVey – who is married to Philip Davies – presented alongside her husband until taking up a position in Rishi Sunak’s cabinet in November.

Former Tory MP Michael Portillo also presents his own show.

GB News has said that the Prime Minister will take part in an hour-long Q&A with voters during Rees-Mogg’s usual nightly slot on Monday, February 12.

The programme will be hosted by Stephen Dixon in-front of a live audience in a venue near Darlington.

The broadcaster said Keir Starmer has been invited to take part in a similar programme on the channel.

Despite Ofcom rules stating that “no politician may be used as a newsreader, interviewer or reporter in any news programmes unless, exceptionally, it is editorially justified”, Ofcom has failed to sanction GB News over its chronic use of Tory MPs as presenters.

Indeed, Ofcom chair Lord Grade said the watchdog did not want to be “in the business of telling broadcasters, licensees, who they can employ, who they can’t employ”.
