  My Reason To Run

On the eve of the 39th London Marathon, Gabby Logan meets some of the athletes who make the event so special.

More than 40,000 people will cover the 26.2 mile course around the streets of London, and every one of them has their own unique reason for running. Fun runners of all abilities, ages and backgrounds are raising money for many charitable causes, helping make it such an inspirational day.

Ahead of them will be the elite runners, including Olympic legend Sir Mo Farah, who is aiming to win his home marathon for the first time - while Vivian Cheruiyot is back to defend her women’s crown. In the wheelchair event, eight-time winner David Weir will be competing for the 20th consecutive year.

My Reason To Run will be screened on BBC One on Saturday, April 27.

It Takes Two

Rylan Clark-Neal has said it is “a dream” to be joining Zoe Ball as a co-host on Strictly Come Dancing’s It Takes Two when it returns later this year.

The former Big Brother’s Bit On The Side presenter dropped in on Ball’s BBC Radio 2 breakfast show where the news was announced.

Clark-Neal said in a statement: “I can’t begin to explain how excited I am to be joining the Strictly family. I’ve always been a massive fan of It Takes Two and to be working with the amazing Zoe Ball is a dream.

“I’m extremely honoured to be joining such a television institution and can’t wait to bring a lot of mischief to the Strictly bubble. I’m looking forward to getting started and seeing you all soon.”

Ball, who has fronted BBC Two’s It Takes Two since 2011, spoke of her adoration for Clark-Neal.

She said in a statement: “He’s an absolute wonder, I love his daftness and naughtiness and he’s a brilliant live telly host. He’ll fit right into our It Takes Two family. Can’t wait for this new season to start, it’s going be a hoot!”

Controller of BBC Programming and Daytime Dan McGolpin said: “We are really excited to welcome Rylan to the Strictly family. He’s a fantastic broadcaster and I can’t think of a better person to help bring our viewers all the latest Strictly news.”

Dame Darcey Bussell announced her departure from the Strictly judging panel earlier this month, with her replacement not yet named.
