David Tennant heaped praise onto Andrew Marr during the final episode of his BBC show on Sunday morning.

Before Marr signed off from his long-running BBC politics show with a line from his ‘mentor’ Anchorman character Ron Burgundy, the journalist sat down with the Good Omens actor.

As their chat came to an end, Tennant wasted no time in applauding the host, who had spent more than two decades at the corporation.

‘Andrew, we will miss you so much on a Sunday morning by the way,’ Tenant told him. ‘I know you don’t like being showered with praise, but you are the epitome of everything that is good about this corporation.’

‘Stop, stop, stop, stop!’ a red-faced Marr said in retaliation.

‘It’s true,’ Tennant persisted. ‘We will miss you!’

‘That is very kind of you,’ Marr replied, before moving the show swiftly on.

Marr spent over 16 years at the helm of his own Sunday morning show and admitted he felt ‘privileged’ to share so many Sunday mornings with viewers.

Referring to the catchphrase of the fictional news anchor .ed by Will Ferrell in the 2004 hit comedy, he added: ‘I have been wondering how to close this final show, but I can’t do better than quoting my great mentor. You stay classy, San Diego.’

His final programme featured a montage of highlights of the show over the years, including interviews with Tony Blair, Greta Thunberg, Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin.

Sophie Raworth will serve as the interim presenter of the Sunday morning programme, which will be temporarily retitled Sunday Morning, from January 9.

Marr, 62, previously said he will now focus on writing and presenting political and cultural shows for Global, and writing for newspapers.

He said moving to the London-based media company offers him a ‘new freedom’ to do ‘fast-paced, very regular political journalism on LBC with no filter’.

Marr joined the BBC in May 2000 as political editor.
