Channel 4’s Make Me Prime Minister: meet the finalists and how to watch the final

The first season of Make Me Prime Minister will conclude on Tuesday night as three members of the public battle it out to become an alternative Prime Minister. The all-female final will see Natalie, Kelly, and Holly go head-to-head as each contestant runs a last ditch campaign for office.

The Channel 4 series has followed 12 ordinary people with differing political views, as they took part in simulations of real-world political scenarios. The show is searching for a contestant with the right ministerial skills and political leadership traits, to become an alternative Prime Minister.

Each contestant will be judged on their charisma, trustworthiness, political competence, and overall acumen as they work through key policy areas and face the unforgiving and hostile British media. In last week’s semi-final, the contestants faced a grilling from Channel 4 News’ Krishnan Guru-Murthy and LBC’s Nick Ferrari.

In the end, the cast lost some of its star-performers including Rico, Adam, and legendary UK producer and DJ Goldie’s son, Danny. Here’s what you need to know about the final and the finalists.
