Andrew Marr to return to BBC One show after stroke
Journalist Andrew Marr is set to return his Sunday morning BBC One show at the beginning of September.
The 53-year-old author, journalist, historian, political commentator and former editor of The Independent has been off air since he suffered a stroke nine months ago.
Speaking of his return, Mr Marr said: "I'm hugely looking forward to coming back and want to give it my all but recovering from a stroke does take time.”
"We've taken the decision to start with the Sunday show in the autumn and I'm delighted to be returning to present Start the Week on Radio 4 later on in the year."
Mr Marr spent two months in hospital recovering from the stroke which he has blamed on tearing his carotid artery when exercising on a rowing machine.
His return follows a brief appearance in April as a guest on The Andrew Marr Show.
