Sports Personality of the Year host Gary Lineker has explained some of the differences in the voting procedure for the 2012 ceremony.

Cyclists Bradley Wiggins and Sir Chris Hoy, tennis star Andy Murray, and athletes Jessica Ennis and Mo Farah are candidates in a 12-strong list.

Rower Katherine Grainger, golfer Rory McIlroy, boxer Nicola Adams and sailor Ben Ainslie are other hopefuls.

Paralympians Sarah Storey, Ellie Simmonds and David Weir also make the list for the award on 16 December.

Speaking to the BBC's One Show, Lineker explained that voting would begin after all 12 sports stars had been featured, to ensure a fair vote.
