Vine to host Marr Show

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.
