BBC One's Royal Wedding anchors

BBC One has announced the anchor team for their royal wedding coverage:

The presenting line-up will include Radio 1's Fearne Cotton, Jake Humphrey, the Formula 1 host, Vernon Kay, who hosts a game show, and Radio 1's Scott Mills.   News anchor Huw Edwards, a BBC News anchor, will join Fiona Bruce and Sophie Raworth, who are also BBC news anchors.

Veteran anchor David Dimbleby, 72, has not been asked to join the royal wedding team.  With a lineup like this, I am not convinced that the BBC coverage will be better than NBC, for example.  Do we really expect presenter who talks about car racing to know who the Duchess of Kent is let alone, the Prince or Orange?

Are you serious ???? Vernon Kay and Fearne Cotton - gees is this a spoof. Please royal watchers do not expect any foreign royals to get a mention and if they do sure as anything they will get the names wrong. The British RF isdoing its utmost to become Z list celebs. I despair...

The royal family has nothing to do with the BBC coverage, but yes, this is the lineup announced by the Beeb.
