Jamie Cullum is making his debut at the Proms.

The jazz singer and Radio 2 presenter will give his first Proms performance in August.

Doctor Who, which first arrived at the Proms two years ago and became one of the season's hottest tickets, is also returning this summer.

Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, who play the Doctor and his assistant, will act as hosts to bring the Time Lord back for two performances in July with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, which records all the soundtracks for the series.

The first of this year's Doctor Who Proms will be broadcast on BBC Three.

Other Proms performers just announced include Placido Domingo and Bryn Terfel while the event, to be presented on TV and radio by Katie Derham, will feature music by Wagner, Beethoven and Elgar.

Stephen Fry will usher in the opening weekend of the season on BBC Four.

The 116th Proms season, with most concerts taking place at the Royal Albert Hall, runs from July 16 to September 11.
