Duration: 1 hour

The six remaining Speakers get political in their bid to become Britain's Best Young Speaker. Former Labour government director of communications Alastair Campbell mentors the youngsters in the power of persuasion.

Each teenager is challenged to make a rallying speech to the people of Egham in Surrey about hot local issues. The Egham residents will then vote for the most persuasive Speaker. The three Speakers who fail to impress will have to speak again in front of Alastair and judges Jo Brand, John Amaechi and Jeremy Stockwell. The judges will decide which Speaker hasn't made the grade and is going home.
