Broadcaster Andrew Marr left hospital yesterday almost two months after being admitted, suffering from a stroke.

The presenter, who was taken ill on 8 January, will continue his rehabilitation at home, where he will undergo a new physio regime.

The presenter, who has his own Sunday morning political discussion programme on BBC and is a familiar voice on Radio 4, is expected to return to work later this year.

A BBC spokeswoman said “He says thank you to all the wonderful nurses, doctors and physiotherapists at Charing Cross hospital who have looked after him so well.

“He is looking forward to a new regime of physio at home as he prepares for his return to work later this year.”

The broadcaster is married to journalist Jackie Ashley and has three children.
