On last night’s episode of Question Time, David Dimbleby made his way to Burton upon Trent to chair a panel made up of Jacob Rees-Mogg, Richard Burgon, Caroline Lucas, Susie Boniface and (Sir) Craig Oliver.

Unlike last week, the BBC anchor did not have to eject any audience members for rowdy behaviour. However, that’s not to say the programme was without interruption. Halfway through the episode, a phone went off. On closer inspection, it transpired out that it was Dimbleby’s phone:

‘This is my stopwatch saying it’s bedtime!’

At 78, are the late nights beginning to get to Dimbleby?
