It’s time to bring the country back together with a Channel 4 two hour special, The Last Leg: Re-United Kingdom, inspired by and in memory of MP Jo Cox, this special show celebrates what we have in common a year on since her murder.
With warmth and humour The Last Leg hosts Adam Hills, Alex Brooker and Josh Widdecombe urge people to put aside their differences following polling day and various divisive referenda. They host their own celebrity-filled street party, reuniting famous foes and settle some long-standing disputes as high-profile guests from the worlds of politics and show business come together to put their differences aside.
Cross-party involvement and international faces lend their support in surprising and interesting ways across the evening. Guests include Nick Clegg, Alastair Campbell, Jon Richardson, Stephen Mangan, Elbow, Lily Cole and James Buckley.
Plus political rivals Tony Blair vs William Hague, Nicola Sturgeon vs Ruth Davidson and Michael Gove vs Ed Balls take part in comedy sketches.
