George Galloway is now part of the panel in tonight's televised BBC indy debate after a row about his inclusion.

BBC Scotland confirmed that the four speakers are Galloway, Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson, and Green co-convener Patrick Harvie.

The Big Big Debate, with an audience of 7-8000 young voters at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, was recorded this afternoon. It will be shown at 9pm in Scotland and 10.40pm in the rest of the UK.

Galloway claimed yesterday that he had expected to feature for the No camp but his appearance had been "vetoed" at a senior level within the BBC on the grounds that it should only feature Scottish-based politicians.

BBC Scotland then dismissed the claim and said it was common for panel line-ups to change.

The Bradford West MP tweeted today: "I am now officially back on the show tonight. Sturgeon apparently not showing up :-)"

Sturgeon tweeted at 6pm: "Just finished recording #BigBigDebate in Hydro. Enjoyed it. Going by fantastic young audience, future of Indy Scotland is in great hands."
