Jarvis Cocker has been revealed as one of the guest editors of Radio 4’s Today programme to be broadcast this Christmas.

The singer, who follows on from previous musician guests including U2‘s Bono and Damon Albarn, will use his programme to discuss money issues and the credit crunch.

Also taking part this year, as part of the Today programme’s annual group of guest editors are novelist Zadie Smith, head of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor and architect Zaha Hadid amongst others.

Speaking about this year’s Christmas guest editors, Today editor Ceri Thomas said: “They think of things that wouldn’t normally occur to us; they take us places we wouldn’t ordinarily go. I think this year’s group is the most fascinating we’ve ever worked with.”
