Here’s all you need to know about tonight’s guests.

Stephen Flynn

Born in Dundee, the SNP’s leader at Westminster has been an MP since December 2019, and has led the group since 2022.

Yesterday, he renewed calls for Commons Speaker Hoyle to resign after his “outrageous” failure to allow Abbott to speak at PMQs – despite other MPs debating "racist and abhorrent" comments made about her.

The Aberdeen South MP said: “If I may, I think he's lost control of the Chamber. Obviously, the disagreement between myself and Lindsay is well known to everyone. But this was a stage further today … I think it's beyond even me to offer some sort of commentary as to the decision making that the Speaker gave today because it's so outrageously bad.”

Lee Rowley

Rowley is minister for housing, planning and building safety and has served as the MP for North East Derbyshire in 2017.

Before entering politics, he worked in financial services and management consultancy.

The junior minister was taken to task on the BBC politics programme in his last appearance as a woman laid into the lack of condemnation from the Tories over the killing of civilians in Gaza.

Jonathan Reynolds

Reynolds (below) currently serves as the shadow business and trade secretary and has worked as the MP for Stalybridge and Hyde since 2010.

He worked in local government before entering Westminster, serving on Tameside Council as well as on Labour’s National Executive Committee from 2003 to 2005.

It’s likely he will be asked about Labour’s stance on Gaza, which has led to a number of officials resigning from the party.

Ayesha Hazarika

The Scottish broadcaster and former adviser to Gordon Brown and Ed Miliband now represents Labour for life in the unelected House of Lords.

Phillips, a columnist for The Times, contributes regularly to  The Jerusalem Post and The Jewish Chronicle.

The BBC has previously described Phillips as "one of the [British] media's leading right-wing voices".
