Jonathan Ross has joined the board of the British Film Institute.

The former presenter of the BBC film show is one of three newly-announced board members and will start the unpaid role in April.

Jonathan, who took over from Barry Norman on the flagship film show in 1999 until he left the BBC for ITV in 2010, joins the board with Sony Pictures' Andrea Wong and producer Pete Czernin.

BFI chairman Greg Dyke said: "Each new board member brings a unique set of expertise, experience and insight to the table and we are very pleased to have three such talented individuals join us.

"The strength of the BFI board has been greatly enhanced and it is well-placed to meet the opportunities and challenges of the next phase in the BFI's development and growth."

Other board members include The King's Speech director Tom Hooper and writer and director Peter Kosminsky.

Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
