There will also be highlights from the Olympics with exclusive interviews from the team about their time in Tokyo.

Greg James said: "As always with the Olympics, I’ve become an expert in events I only think about every four years.

"I can’t wait to celebrate our extraordinary Team GB athletes and be in front of an actual crowd again. It’s been a long time coming - it’s going to be a brilliant night. Anyway, must go, I’m off to practice shot put.”

Clara Amfo added: "It would be understatement to say that the road to Tokyo 2020 has not been easy for Team GB but their dedication and passion to the sports they love has been nothing short of inspiring!
