“The Edinburgh TV Festival is a brilliant platform to shine a light on the amazing people in our business and their work – and to ask meaningful questions, to move the dial on what is offered to the audience.”

France found fame on the Netflix reboot of makeover show Queer Eye after previously running his own fashion company.

Fatima Salaria, executive chairwoman of the festival, said: “Tan will bring a new dimension to the festival as we aim to be more disruptive and challenging.”

The advisory board helps formulate themes and sessions for the event.
