Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn had a live election debate – 17 spoiled ballots
After a legal challenge by the SNP and the Liberal Democrats failed to secure them an invitation, ITV’s Leaders’ Debate featured just Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn in a question and answer session with a studio audience.
Twitter joined in the “fun” by tweeting along with the action.
Even before it began, people were making guesses as to what preparations might be going on and how the event might unfold.

Dominic: Are you ready for tonight's debate?
Boris: Yup, I'll wipe the floor with him
Boris: What's the name of the other guy again?
Dominic: Jeremy Corbyn
Boris: Johnny Tampon, got it
Dominic: Fuck sake

My prediction for tonight is this – Johnson will say:
"prick it with a fork"
"slam it in the microwave"
"Get it done… get Brexit over"
And throw a googly in the mix – a dead cat to alight twitter.
He'll also waffle and say nothing very much #leadersdebate

The set looked as though it had been made for a futuristic panel show, which was weird considering the country could soon be plunged back to the 1970s.

Another bloody panel show I haven’t been booked on #ITVDebate

Boris Johnson seemed obsessed with one thing – Brexit.
Pretty sure Boris's notes just have 'Get Brexit Done' written in crayon, a crude drawing a cock on them, and a phone number that he got from a toilet wall. #LeadersDebate
