Andrew Marr makes his TV comeback after stroke

Nine months after the serious stroke that left him with mobility issues, BBC broadcaster Andrew Marr returned to television screens this morning to interview the former Labour MP David Miliband.

Marr returned to a familiar stomping ground as he interviewed Miliband in a pre-recorded segment for The Andrew Marr show, which was anchored by stand-in host Jeremy Vine.

Former Independent editor Marr said it felt "really natural" to be back on screen and made clear his intention to return full-time to his eponymous programme in the autumn.

"You have to take it bit by bit and I always wanted to come back in the autumn as it's the natural beginning of the political year," said Marr. "But I also felt that I'm thinking and talking fine. My walking is a bit wobbly, but so what?"

Marr's return was welcomed by many users of Twitter, who praised the veteran broadcaster for the swiftness of his return to screen.

David Wooding, associate political editor of The Sun, tweeted: "Good to see Andrew #Marr interviewing @DMiliband on TV - two men who've been off our screens for far too long."
