The BBC has announced that the ex-leader of UKIP Nigel Farage will take all five guest spots on next Thursday’s episode of Question Time. 

It has also emerged that Farage will present the show in place of David Dimbleby.

A BBC spokesperson said, ‘Brexit is getting more and more important with every passing day, and so it is now clear that simply having one Nigel Farage on the show isn’t good enough.’

’Therefore, Nigel will be joining us for a whole day of filming next Thursday, and the footage will then be edited for the evening’s broadcast showing Nigel presenting the panel discussion between five other versions of himself.’

’We have the technical production team from Doctor Who taking care of the edit to ensure the highest possible broadcast standards.’

’To ensure that the show remains as balanced as possible, it will be filmed somewhere up North and all rough like.’

’The audience has been hand-picked to ensure that Nigel, Nigel, Nigel, Nigel and Nigel are presented with a healthy range of opinions.’

’For example, our audition process makes sure that any potential Brexiteers finish their points 13 shades of red darker than when they started speaking.’

’We usually only choose those who appear to be on the brink of an aneurysm, provided that they pronounce Brexit with a ‘G.’

A source within the BBC confirmed that the corporation was at risk of contravening a recent Ofcom guideline stating that Nigel Farage must constitute at least 3% of the broadcaster’s entire output.
