What is the format of the debate?

Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson have the opportunity to make short opening statements as well as closing statements at the conclusion of the debate. The order of the statements have been decided by lots 

Jeremy Hunt's name was drawn, and he had the first choice whether to speak first or second in the opening statements. He chose to speak second in the opening statements, while Boris Johnson chose to speak second in the closing statements.

After making their opening statements, each candidate will answer viewers’ questions and debate directly with each other. ITV viewers have submitted their questions, and those selected will appear in the studio audience to put their question directly to the leadership candidates.
