Alice Levine has been named as the new co-host of Radio 4 panel show The Museum Of Curiosity.

The former Radio 1 presenter, Taskmaster contestant, and star of the My Dad Wrote A Porno podcast will act as the curator on Series 15 of the show, which starts on Radio 4 in September.

Each series of the long-running panel comedy sees a different co-host joining host John Lloyd. Previous curators include Romesh Ranganathan, Sally Phillips, Lee Mack and Bridget Christie.

Producers explain: "The Museum Of Curiosity is a comedy show inviting the world's most interesting guests to donate the exhibit of their choice to an infinite, imaginary museum.

"Guests adding to the display cases this series include acclaimed stand-up and actor Eddie Izzard, Emmy award-winning comedian Hannah Gadsby, chef Ainsley Harriott and the creator of Bridget Jones - best-selling author Helen Fielding. Also set to join Alice and John are wheelchair basketball champion Ade Adepitan, mathematician and pianist Dr Eugenia Cheng, journalist and broadcaster Ian Hislop plus many more."

Alice Levine comments: "Not since being made 'register monitor' in Year 4 have I felt pride like this. Having received upwards of 247 promising out-of-office emails from the team in response to my applications over the years, it's with great relief and joy that they have seen fit to finally relent and hire me. Regarding enquiries about my controversial policy to remove the cress from the egg sandwiches in the museum café, no more questions at this time."

John Lloyd has presented the show since its inception in 2008. He says: "The appointment of top DJ, podcast legend and total dude Alice Levine as curator instantly upgrades The Museum Of Curiosity from merely the largest museum in the universe, to by far the coolest. Wrap up well. Gloves, thermals etc. And some sort of hat is probably in order."

Series 15 of The Museum Of Curiosity starts on Radio 4 on Monday 7th September at 6:30pm.
