Mastermind has named its replacement for long-serving host John Humphrys: BBC journalist Clive Myrie.
Humphrys, who has sat in the BBC Two quiz show's famous leather chair for 18 years, announced in February that he planned to leave his role fronting the contest and that his final episode would air in April.
Now award-winning journalist Myrie has been named as his replacement and is set to begin filming in July ahead of his first series airing later this year.
Myrie is best known as the presenter of BBC News At Six and Ten, for his work as a foreign correspondent, and for fronting a series of acclaimed reports from hospitals about the coronavirus pandemic.
He was named best television journalist recently at the Royal Television Society Awards.
Myrie said: "What a privilege it is to take on this new role.
"Mastermind with Magnus Magnusson formed the backdrop to my youth, and now to be at the helm is a dream come true. I'm excited and can't wait to get stuck in."
BBC entertainment director Kate Phillips said: "Clive will be a superb host, witty, wise and with a wicked sense of humour, he's a consummate interrogator who also understands the fear involved when facing a barrage of questions in the spotlight."

Myrie will be the fifth host of the show, which celebrates its 50th anniversary next year.
It has previously been presented by Magnus Magnusson, Peter Snow and Clive Anderson, with Humphrys taking over in 2003.
