Olympic Torch Live: East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

7:00pm Monday 18 June on BBC ONE

John Inverdale presents a live TV special from Hull’s West Park, where thousands of people will gather to see the historic arrival of the Olympic Torch on its first day in the region.

John will capture the sense of excitement and anticipation as he prepares to welcome the Torch into West Park.

The programme also features a film of Hull’s Olympic boxing hopeful Luke Campbell, who will talk about competing (and winning) his final tournament before the Olympics.

There will also be a look ahead to the Torch’s arrival in Lincoln, when Hollywood actor and Lincoln resident Colin McFarlane goes on a short filmed tour of his favourite places in the famous Cathedral city.
