Jeremy Vine to host Sunday's Andrew Marr Show

Jeremy Vine is to host this Sunday’s edition of The Andrew Marr Show, the BBC has announced.

Former Newsnight presenter Vine will stand in on Sunday following on from James Landale who presented the show last weekend.

Marr, 53, suffered a stroke last week.

A spokeswoman for the corporation said: "Andrew Marr is continuing to make good progress and is working on his physiotherapy with his customary determination.

"The Marr/Ashley family would like to thank everyone for the fantastic support they have received in terms of cards, emails, texts, tweets, flowers, etc.

"They would like to repeat their request for Andrew's privacy to be respected while he recovers."
