Every time Rishi Sunak and Keir Starmer scolded by Julie Etchingham during tense ITV debate

Rishi Sunak and Sir Keir Starmer were repeatedly scolded for shouting over each other during their first televised debate of the 2024 general election.

Mediator Julie Etchingham stepped in several times as the leaders went head-to-head live on ITV on Tuesday, 4 June.

Tuesday’s debate came with just four weeks to go until the general election.
