In breaking news coming out of tonight's NXT UK tapings in Coventry, the brand now has a new commentary team and a new ring announcer going forward.

NXT UK's established ring announcer Andy Shepherd, who has recently featured on WWE kick-off shows, would kick off the evening by confirming that he's transitioning to the announce table, joining Nigel McGuinness to form NXT UK's new commentary team going forward - and also welcoming Francesca Brown to the role of ring announcer!

NXT UK fans will be familiar with Andy Shepherd's work already as a ring announcer and, for those in attendance at events, for hyping up the crowd and whipping the WWE Universe into a frenzy before every event, and generally being an incredible host for the evening at events such as NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool II.

Meanwhile, presenter and actress Francesca Brown may be a less familiar face to the WWE Universe, but the London-born star has featured in movies such as Breathe and Hunter's Moon, as well as TV series Lookalikes. Brown has also featured across the press as being a lookalike for Katy Perry and is often confused for the pop star in public.
