  • Traditional anthems will be sung at next year’s Last Night Of The Proms, the BBC has confirmed.

    The broadcaster confirmed the move after Prime Minister Boris Johnson made an intervention on the issue.

    He called for an end to “self-recrimination and wetness” as the BBC’s chief said it was “right” to remove lyrics from some traditional anthems during this year’s performance.

    The BBC’s outgoing director-general Lord Hall said the decision to perform new, orchestral versions of Rule, Britannia! and Land Of Hope And Glory was a “creative” one.
