Nicola Sturgeon and Tim Farron will appear on Question Time tonight
The BBC postponed the programme after seven people were killed and 48 were injured in a terrorist incident at London Bridge on Saturday night.
Three attackers drove a van into crowds of people on London Bridge before jumping out and stabbing people at bars and restaurants in Borough Market.
Political parties resumed their national campaigns today after all political parties, apart from Ukip, suspended campaigning on a national level following the attack.
A BBC spokesperson said yesterday: “The Question Time Leaders Special with Nicola Sturgeon and Tim Farron planned for 5.55pm will make way for a BBC news special on the London Bridge attack.”
How can I watch the Question Time Leaders Special
The Question Time special will air tonight on BBC One at 9pm. The programme can also be streamed live on Twitter or BBC iPlayer.

The programme will be presented by Nick Robinson, rather than Question Time veteran David Dimbleby.

What is the format?
The leaders will not debate each other directly, but will take questions from the audience on a consecutive basis.
It will be the same format used when Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn appeared on Friday’s Question Time special.
During the grilling, Mrs May said she “had the balls” to call a general election but was repeatedly forced to defend her controversial social care policy.
Mr Corbyn started strongly but was rattled when the audience pressed him on his nuclear weapons policy are past support of the IRA.
