Bodyguard actor Keeley Hawes has become the new voice of radio station Classic FM.


The Durells star will now be heard announcing the station’s programmes, hosts, forthcoming highlights and news bulletins. She joins My Family actor Robert Lindsay, who is the male voice of the station.

Keeley said: “I’m delighted to join Classic FM as the new voice of the station. I’ve been a fan of Classic FM for many years and I am thrilled to be part of the team.”

Sam Jackson, managing editor of Classic FM, said of the hiring: “Keeley is one of our most talented and popular actors, and we’re so excited to welcome her to Classic FM. Her warmth, sense of fun and amazing voice are perfect for the station.”


Hawes currently plays Dorothy in BBC1 drama Mrs Wilson, a character with a very curious background (if you don’t mind spoilers for episode two of the show, you can read more here).
