BBC One announces The One Show team
The One Show returns to BBC One on Monday 9 July with an impressive line-up of talented presenters joining hosts Adrian Chiles and Myleene Klass every weekday at 7pm.
The inimitable Hardeep Singh Kohli will be reporting from around the UK; history buff Dan Snow brings the UK's rich past to life; Dominic Littlewood weighs in with his consumer expertise; and natural history newcomer Ellie Harrison reports on the breadth and depth of wildlife around the nations.
Peter Fincham, Controller, BBC One, said: "It is great to have The One Show back in the schedule – and this time for a whole year.
"We have a fantastic family of versatile presenters joining Adrian Chiles, and we are harnessing production talent from all over the BBC – from the Natural History Unit in Bristol to Current Affairs department through to the Consumer Unit and Entertainment Group. The early evening audience is in for a treat."
Other presenters who will be appearing regularly on the show are roving reporters Carol Thatcher, Phil Tuffnell, Angellica Bell, Christine Bleakley, Justin Rowlatt and Colin Jackson.
Dr Michael Mosley (health and science), Steve Backshall and David Lindo (wildlife), Lucy Seigle (the environment) and Neil Oliver (history) complete the line-up of expert reporters.
The One Show's Editor, Doug Carnegie, said: "Adrian is the same bloke on-screen as off it – intelligent and down to earth. He asks the questions viewers want asked, but he essentially likes people. I've even known him be civil to Wolves fans."
Executive Producer Tessa Finch added: "The One Show is bringing together a great line-up of new and established faces from all across the UK. Our experts all have a genuine passion for their specialist area and our reporters have signed up to travel the length and breadth of the country to find the UK's most fascinating stories."
