Ayrshire residents are wanted to take part in the BBC's Debate Night programme next week. 

The topical discussion programme involves a virtual audience, who have the opportunity to have their say about the issues that matter most to them.

Next week's programme on Wednesday February 24 is open to applicants from members of the general public from across Ayrshire and Arran.

The show says: "Whether you’re home-schooling, managing a business, caring for loved ones, or your life has been turned upside down by Coronavirus.

"As a Debate Night audience member it is your questions which lead the discussion and the stories, experiences and opinions you share with us that matter most.

"This is the only TV programme of its kind in the country to give you the chance to put your questions straight to Scotland’s key decision-makers and public figures."
