Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn loom large in ITV leaders' debate

The event will see Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron, Ukip's Paul Nuttall and the SNP's Nicola Sturgeon lock horns.

The Welsh nationalist corrected Mr Nuttall twice as he appeared to confuse her with ex-Green Party chief Natalie Bennett.

Four leaders of minor United Kingdom political parties criticized Theresa May's approach to Brexit in a television debate ahead of next month's general election that the prime minister herself declined to take part in.

Nuttall, Wood, Lucas and Sturgeon were left to fight it out alongside Tim Farron.

But a defiant Mr Nuttall said only his party was "truly committed to the Brexit that people voted for" in last year's referendum.

Both Farron and Lucas said their parties would fight for a referendum on the final Brexit deal, though Nuttall took his counterattack to Farron, whom he accused of not respecting the referendum result.

Moderated by ITV News anchor Julie Etchingham, the primetime broadcast will offer viewers the opportunity to see leaders engaging directly in debate on significant election questions, put to them by members of the audience.

She said: "Theresa May may not have the guts to be here but her spokesman Paul Nuttall is in her place".

And Mr Corbyn says he will not attend a debate which does not feature the Prime Minister.

Ms Lucas said she thinks Britain should be able to stay in the European Union, and keep our borders open to the bloc, telling the audience: 'It's a wonderful thing that we can live and work and be in these other member states'. "You want this election to only be about Brexit because that means you avoid talking about the real issues like the NHS, the economy and the cuts you have made to our public services", said Ms Wood.

This is how Wood, Lucas and SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon reacted following the second blunder.

And she said that the Green Party would hold another vote in a move created to derail Brexit.

"If opposition parties had worked together they could have opposed Brexit", she said.

The Liberal Democrat leader also referred to Mr Nuttall as an "ambassador" for Mrs May for pushing for a "calamitous extreme Brexit". To which Leanne replied: "I'm not Natalie, I'm Leanne".
