Dermot O’Leary will be interviewing the three main party leaders ahead of the general election for BBC3.

The X Factor presenter claims it will be a good chance to get more young people into politics: “If young people really are to get politics, then politics must really understand young people.”

And who better to explain it to them than Dermot ‘flavour-of-the-month’ O’Leary.

The interviews with Cameron and Clegg are to be shown on Wednesday 21st at 8pm on BBC3. The interviews with Brown as well as political leaders of Plaid Cymru and The Scottish National Party will be shown the Wednesday after, on the same channel.

Dermot’s popularity amongst the younger audience is bound to bring a wider viewing and maybe this is just what the Election needs to add a little bit of spark with more teenage voters having their say. After all, it is their futures that we talking about here.
