Tonight Show Racism the Red Card Patron, Clarke Carlisle will be the first professional footballer to appear on Question Time.
Burnley FC defender and campaign Patron, Clarke Carlisle will tonight be a panelist on Question Time in Burnley. He will be joined by Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman, Deputy Liberal Democrat Leader Simon Hughes, former MP George Galloway and Alastair Campbell.
Clarke said, "I don't consider myself to be a politics buff by any stretch of the imagination, but with the economic crisis, having a young family and the recent election, my wife and I started to take a keener interest and I just hope I can give a layman's perspective on things."
Question Time will be on BBC 1 at 10.35pm, 20 January.
