Raheem, 26, is expected to dedicate his edition to subjects he is passionate about, including helping disadvantaged youngsters.

Today editor Owenna Griffiths said: “Each year the guest editors bring novel ideas, surprising perspectives and, on occasion, a little sparkle to the programme.

“This year is no exception and I’m thrilled these guests have agreed to spend time with us to help illuminate and make sense of the world we live in”.

The flagship news and current affairs programme has been running for 64 years.

Previous guest editors have included actress Angelina Jolie, Prof Stephen Hawking and teenage climate change campaigner Greta Thunberg.

Sterling’s show will air between December 27 and January 3.

Last week, the Sky Blues star launched a foundation to aid education and social mobility for youngsters in Britain and Jamaica.
