The first snap poll of viewers – for More in Common has been released, and it reveals who the public thinks won the debate.

Reform UK’s Nigel Farage came out on top, with 25% of viewers saying he won. Labour’s Angela Rayner was in second place on 19%.

14% of viewers said they didn’t think any of the participants won.

The Green Party’s co-leader Carla Denyer was next, on 11%, ahead of the SNP’s Stephen Flynn on 10%.
