Ms Hopkins will be debating on Thursday about giving a stage to those with offensive opinions.

She will opposing the idea, fighting for the right to free speech, with politician Ann Widdecombe (now of Brexit Party) and controversial journalist Toby Young.

Giving a thumbs-up to the idea will be retired lawyer Robert French, Labour MP Naz Shah and Ms Idissi – who gained publicity for being the first Muslim hijab-wearing model.
