The Politics of Gogglebox

Forget focus groups, watching Channel 4's Gogglebox can be a great insight into what the nation thinks about its politicians. The show's creator Stephen Lambert tells Matt how the idea came about and how it became must-see TV for prime ministers. Ex-Goggleboxers Steph and Dom talk about their time on the sofa, and Josh Tapper says it led him to want to be an MP.

Plus columnists James Forsyth and Melanie Reid on Boris Johnson and Liz Truss joining a backbench rebellion, whether foreign students should be counted in the immigration figures, and why journalists - apart from James - don't dress as smartly as they used to.
