Kelvin Mackenzie in charity race to present Radio 4's Woman's Hour

Former Sun editor Kelvin Mackenzie has been lined up to present a one-off edition of Radio 4's Woman's Hour — as part of a BBC stunt to raise money for Comic Relief.

The outspoken columnist and ex-talkSPORT owner is one of three men competing to join presenter Martha Kearney on the daily women's discussion show on Radio 4.

Mackenzie is up against Top Gear crash survivor Richard Hammond and Andy Hamilton, the Radio 4 comedian and panelist on satirical weekly show, The News Quiz.

A public phone vote will decide which of the three men will present the show on Friday 16 March, with proceeds from the calls donated to Comic Relief.

Earlier this week, Woman's Hour host Martha Kearney was announced as the new presenter of Radio 4's World At One.

From April, she will succeed long-serving presenter Nick Clarke, who died from cancer last November.
