The hugely popular series What Not To Wear is to move to BBC ONE.

The series has been a great success on BBC TWO and presenters Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine are now household names across the country, renowned for their tough-talking style advice.

Controller of BBC ONE, Lorraine Heggessey, says: "It felt like the time was right for BBC ONE to get the Trinny and Susannah treatment.

"They've already demonstrated their ability to appeal to a wider audience with their red carpet special and they've moved the show on for a prime time slot on BBC ONE."

Building on the success of the last three series, this new format will expand the posh duo's skills as style gurus to include amusing but insightful exploration of contributors' lives.

The 60 minute format sees potential candidates nominating themselves to appear in the programme, as opposed to waiting for a family member or friends to spot their style disasters.

Part of BBC TWO's remit is to be a breeding ground to develop new programming formats and talent.


It is believed that now is the time for this popular series to make the leap to BBC ONE and reach wider audiences.
