In a statement to the PA news agency, Jeremy said, “I can confirm that I was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s. I am being treated excellently and my symptoms are currently mild.

“I plan to keep broadcasting and writing for as long as you have me, and I wrote more about my diagnosis in the June issue of the wonderful Saga magazine.

“I won’t make any further comment.”

Jeremy is perhaps best known as a former host on BBC Two’s Newsnight.

From 1989 to 2014 he presented the flagship current affairs program. During this time he interviewed high-profile personalities from politics and culture.

He has also headed the University Challenge since 1994, making it the longest-serving quiz master on British television.
