The ceremony's artistic director, Danny Boyle, revealed the name at a press briefing alongside crisp salesman Gary Lineker.

Boyle, who is best known for directing Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire and Trainspotting, said: "we'll be celebrating the whole of the country". Gary Linkeker added "there are so many great flavours".
