Nick, Nicole and Perri will front the nightly show in the Team GB Lounge alongside a host of special guests from the worlds of sport and entertainment. As well as catching the hosts in conversation with Dame Jessica and other Olympic legends, ticket holders will have the opportunity to join in-person medal celebrations with Team GB athletes and watch the biggest moments of the Games unfold live on the big screens.

She retired from competitive sport in 2020 before carving out her own niche as a broadcaster and content creator.

Dame Jessica said: “I’m thrilled to be the first Team GB legend announced for Team GB House at Paris 2024. I was lucky enough to experience the very special atmosphere at Team GB House as an athlete – both in London and Rio – and I can promise you… you’re in for a treat. As part of the ‘An Evening with…’ series, I’ll be sharing my experiences with you, the Team GB fans, and celebrating our amazing athletes’ achievements at the Games. It’s going to be an incredible Games in Paris this summer, and I can’t wait to see you there!”

Nick Bright said, “Having never been gifted with enough sporting excellence to compete for Team GB it’s an absolute dream to finally (kind of) be part of the squad! I can’t wait to meet the athletes making Britain proud this summer as well as sitting down with some real-life legends. Plus, a couple of weeks in Paris is a bit of a bonus, isn’t it?! Allez Team GB!”

Nicole Holliday said, “I’m thrilled to be working with Team GB on such an exciting show! It’s going to be an incredible few weeks in Paris getting up close and personal with our Team GB athletes and legends in a beautiful venue with a big live audience every night – what more could you ask for! It’s a real once in a lifetime experience and I’m counting down the days until we get started.”

Perri Shakes-Drayton said, “After first experiencing Team GB House as an athlete at London 2012, getting to return as one of the hosts is surreal! The atmosphere in Paris was always going to be incredible, but with fans being able to buy tickets to join us at Team GB House it’s going to be even more special. I can’t wait!”
