Stroke-hit Andrew Marr to return to full-time presenting, says BBC
Sunday 28 July 2013
Broadcaster Andrew Marr will return full-time to his presenting duties in the autumn following his recovery from a major stroke, the BBC confirmed today.
The 53-year-old, who spent two months in hospital and has undergone months of physiotherapy to help him walk, takes up the helm again on BBC 1's Andrew Marr Show from September 1 and will also return to Radio 4's Start the Week.
He 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."
A Radio 4 spokesman said: "Andrew is a fantastic presenter and we look forward to having him back on Radio 4. Meanwhile Start the Week will continue to be presented by Stephanie Flanders and a few other regulars."
