If an imminent election and an international football tournament weren’t exciting enough, centrist dads scored a hat-trick with a new announcement today. Having revealed a team of election-night presenters which runs the ideological gamut from Emily Maitlis to Clare Balding, Channel 4 is now boosting its coverage by screening televised episodes of Rory Stewart and Alastair Campbell’s podcast, The Rest is Politics.

That’s six episodes, to be precise, beginning next Wednesday and taking an expectant public up to the big night on 4 July. What Stewart and Campbell make of the current state of the Tory Party is anyone’s guess, and it will be fascinating to hear their insight on Nigel Farage’s involvement in proceedings. Ed Balls and George Osborne: a primetime slot awaits.
