Edwards will lead a diverse range of presenters across the BBC’s television and radio networks. Details of the BBC’s broadcasting plans, including the full presenting line-up, will be revealed early in the new year.

Commenting on the news of his appointment, Edwards said: “I am delighted with the news and consider it a great honour to play a part in what I am sure will be a huge national celebration.”
