Fiona Bruce has been announced as the new presenter for BBC One’s Question Time.

“It is an honour to be asked to take on one of the great political programmes of the BBC. Particularly at a time of such historic change for the UK and tumult at Westminster,” said Fiona.

“For many years Question Time has been presented by one of my television heroes, so I am thrilled and not a little daunted to be stepping into his shoes.

“But it is a programme I have watched for as long as I can remember and have long wanted to be part of. I can’t wait to get started.”

Fiona has been a regular presenter of the BBC’s News at Six and News at Ten since 1999, and has reported on and presented news and current affairs at the BBC for 25 years.

She has also presented Antiques Roadshow on BBC One for 11 years, as well as hosting the successful arts series Fake Or Fortune? since 2000.

Fran Unsworth, Director of BBC News and Current Affairs, added: “Question Time is one of our flagship political programmes, giving people across Britain the chance to hold the powerful to account. David Dimbleby has done an extraordinary job as chair over the last 25 years.

“David is a tough act to follow, but Fiona impressed us all – with her authority, warmth, and ability to connect with the audience and champion their concerns. We’re delighted to have her at the helm.”

Fiona will take up her role on Question Time when the new series returns on 10 January 2019.
