Stacey, who won the series, and finalist Joe will broadcast the live show from Central Hall Westminster on New Year’s Eve.

The programme will be kicked off by Madness performing a number of hits, as well as a collaboration with The Kingdom Choir, before the focus shifts to the live countdown to the clock striking midnight and the fireworks display over the River Thames.

Stacey said: “2018 has been such a fantastic year for me, working on some hard-hitting documentaries as well as Strictly, has been a real treat.
