Vix said: “It was such a privilege to represent the Green Party regionally and be back in the BBC studio.

"I even got to make Peter Henley laugh!

"Sitting on the sofa with new MP candidates – a teacher, a vet, a barrister, an advisor – from across all the parties was truly refreshing.

"This election will give voters a rare opportunity to send a large set of new MPs to Westminster to shake up the Commons.

"I’m looking forward to more opportunities to put forward my plans for IW East.”
