Mr Tory MP and former culture secretary will host the show on Monday and Tuesday and will feature Emily Sheffield, former editor of the Evening Standard.

Ms Dorries said: “I try to avoid TV these days and I’m not one of those MPs you see running past cameras on green lights or in and out of TV studios, but I’m very excited. excited about TalkTV and the opportunity to do so in what could become one of the most exciting weeks we’ve known in British politics. “
On Wednesday, TalkTV’s Kate McCann will present alongside The Sun’s political editor Harry Cole, while author and columnists Douglas Murray and Miss Sheffield will lead on Thursday.
Ms Dorries, an ally of Boris Johnson, has strongly hinted that the former Prime Minister is preparing to run for Tory leadership.
She told Sky News: “He’s a known winner and that’s definitely someone I’m naming against because I want us to win the general election.
“Having a winner in place is what the side needs to survive.”
Richard Wallace, head of television for TalkTV’s News UK Broadcasting, said: “It’s going to be another explosive week in British politics and this team of guest presenters will be able to help TalkTV viewers differentiate analyze and dissect the issues that really matter as events unfold.”
