Jeremy Vine will host this weekend's edition of The Andrew Marr Show as the broadcaster continues to make progress after his stroke.

The BBC said Vine, a former Newsnight presenter who now hosts a Radio 2 show, will stand in on Sunday following on from James Landale who presented the show last weekend. A BBC spokeswoman said: "Andrew is continuing to make progress."

The 53-year-old journalist and television presenter, who is married to journalist Jackie Ashley and has three children, was taken ill last Tuesday.
