Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has said he is "delighted the debate has finally started" despite the polls suggesting he lost the head-to-head to UKIP leader Nigel Farage.
Speaking on his LBC programme, Mr Clegg said that he was not going to be able to reverse 20 years of myth making in two hours.
"Nigel Farage has a few very simple propositions, which are understandably attractive... when many people are quite fearful."
