Question Time is set to become so childish and adversarial tonight that it may as well round off with a gunging, administered by Dimbleby on whichever panellist shouts over the others the loudest.

Nigel Farage will be assuming the role of Right-Wing Wacko, Russell Brand plays Comedian Trying To Be Taken Seriously, Time columnist Camilla Cavendish will be More Considered Voice In The Middle and Tory minister Penny Mordaunt and Shadow International Development Secretary Mary Creagh will be lucky to get a word in edgeways.

You can play our special edition of Question Time bingo here, and keep up with the debate in the live blog below, wherein I'll try to extrapolate some kind of meaning from Brand's tautologies and inevitably end up sitting in the corner of the room shaking and mumbling "banker's bonuses" and "the establishment".

Both men have been in the news this week, Farage for blaming traffic on immigrants and Brand for squaring up to a reporter who asked how much his house costs.
