The 80-year-old broadcaster, who retired from Question Time last year after 25 years, will be fronting the opening episode of the weekly nine-part satirical series and says ‘it’s an intriguing invitation.’ ‘When chairing Question Time I became used to dealing with difficult panellists, but Ian Hislop and Paul Merton are another matter,’ David announced. ‘They have turned disruptive subversion into an art form.’ David stepped down from Question Time last year after 25 years (Picture: PA) He added: ‘It will be quite a challenge to keep the show on the road but whatever happens it will be fun.’ Strictly Come Dancing winner Stacey Dooley and comedian Henning Wehn will join David and regular team captains Paul Merton and Ian Hislop, as guest panellists. David confirmed last June that he would be stepping down from Question Time and said at the time: ‘It was the right moment to leave. ‘It has been a privilege to work for a programme which brings voters face to face with those in power.’ [metro-tag-post-strip] Paying tribute, BBC Director General Tony Hall added: ‘David has been at the helm of Question Time for over 25 years: a brilliant champion of the public and the audience’s friend – getting the answers they want on the big and difficult issues of the day. ‘Always a commanding figure, David has ensured Question Time has not only stayed relevant through the years, but a must watch for those interested in politics and current affairs. ‘The BBC and the public are extraordinarily lucky to have him in what are – to say the least – interesting times politically and socially. We look forward to working with him on other projects in the future.’ In December, it was confirmed that Fiona Bruce would be taking over David’s spot on the programme and her debut, which saw her grill Labour’s Emily Thornbur, Liberal Democrats deputy leader Jo Swinson, Conservative deputy chair James Cleverly, journalist Melanie Phillips and comedian Nish Kumar, didn’t disappoint viewers.
