Tonight’s BBC Question Time showdown in Oldham between Labour leadership candidates Jeremy Corbyn and Owen Smith promises to be a heated climax in the high-stakes election.

Both MPs will face chair David Dimbleby and a live studio audience as they battle against each other ahead of the race results due to be announced on September 24.

At 9pm, an earlier time than the political programme’s normal broadcast, a special edition of Question Time will help undecided Labour members make up their mind about which candidate to back.

But well ahead of the show’s airing, some Corbyn supporters have already decided how biased it will be against their man.

@ukcarers @bbcquestiontime Yep, except for most of the members. BBC will throw in a few Corbyn supporters to make it look balanced.
