Rick Edwards is the new face of BBC Three’s debate show Free Speech, presenting this edition live from Liverpool on Wednesday, 6th March, at 8pm.
With an audience of 120 people, aged 18-25, Rick will be hearing their opinions on the big stories of the day, with Tina Daheley (Radio 1 Newsbeat), relaying twitter, Facebook and website messages from viewers at home.
Last month the first edition of the new series of the hottest current affairs programme for young people saw the debate get heated over same sex marriage, but what will get the panel and the audience hot under the collar this month?
Outspoken singer Kate Nash will be one of the four panellists, and on the night that BBC Three broadcasts Give it Up for Comic Relief, Free Speech will ask if addiction is a medical or criminal issue. Along with a number of current talking points Free Speech will be offering its viewers the chance to talk about the issues that matter to them.
