Sky has announced plans for its General Election coverage.

The fun starts on Monday 29th May with 'May v Corbyn Live: The Battle for Number 10'. This will see Jeremy Paxman grill both party leaders in turn, after a Q&A with the studio audience hosted by Faisal Islam, Sky's political editor.

On election night itself, Adam Boulton and Sophy Ridge co-host 'Vote 2017' from 9pm. This will include live results as they start to come in, with analysis from Michael Thrasher. It will also involve reporters around the country, including with Theresa May at her Maidenhead constituency, in north London with Jeremy Corbyn and with other party leaders.

In all, Sky will be live from 300 constituencies around the UK.

As well as nightly coverage in the run-up, Sky News will show four short films covering the NHS, social mobility, the world of work and Britain's place in the world.

A Sky News election night live blog will be viewable on mobile, with notifications from the Sky News smartphone app. Sky will also hold a 'Vote 2017' Facebook Live broadcast at 1pm every day until election day.

Footage from the night will be viewable in virtual reality on the Sky VR app.

"Sky News will offer their customers the most comprehensive coverage out there both during the rest of the campaign to the drama of election night," said John Ryley, head of Sky News. "Whatever the results, Sky News promises to bring you the latest news first with immediate analysis from Sky News experts and guests with accuracy, flair and a healthy dose of fun."
