BURNLEY defender Clarke Carlisle is swapping the pitch for politics by appearing on current affairs show Question Time.
The 31-year-old, dubbed Britain’s brainiest footballer after winning a 2002 ITV quiz, also made a winning appearance on Countdown.
He will appear on the Question Time panel alongside Burnley fan and former Labour spindoctor Alistair Campbell, Liberal Democrat Simon Hughes and cat impersonator George Galloway.
The centre-back said: “I don’t consider myself to be a politics buff by any stretch of the imagination but, with the economic crisis, having a young family and the recent election, my wife and I started to take a keener interest and I just hope I can give a layman’s perspective on things.”
