Presenter, radio DJ and I’m a Celebrity 2019 finalist, Roman Kemp, joins Craig David as co-host for BBC One’s New Year’s special for 2019.

Roman, who presented the show back in 2017, returns this year for an unmissable treat as BBC One brings Craig David Rocks Big Ben Live this New Year’s Eve, broadcast from Central Westminster Hall.

Roman Kemp says: “I’m so excited to be back hosting NYE again, standing beside the man I’ve listened to since I was six years old, Craig David! It’s always an amazing showcase, I truly can’t wait to see everyone there and bring in 2020.”

Alongside co-hosting the event with Roman, Craig will be brightening up New Year’s Eve on BBC One in a very special live concert as the multiple award-winning and critically acclaimed singer songwriter performs a selection of his smash hits and much more besides to welcome in 2020.

Craig will be kicking things off with a performance alongside his legendary band before Big Ben strikes midnight and London’s famous fireworks fill the night sky lighting up London over the River Thames. The action then heads back inside as Craig returns one more time with one of his globally renowned TS5 sets as the party continues.
