The One Show set for big return with TV favourite after lengthy summer break

The One Show is finally returning to our screens next week after stars took an extended summer break.

The beloved BBC teatime evening show, hosted by Alex Jones, Jermaine Jenas and Ronan Keating, was taken off air back in early August.

It’s fair to say fans were left up in arms after the 7pm talk show was replaced by Rip Off Britain, which sees Angela Rippon, Julia Somerville and Gloria Hunniford investigate financial issues and families hit by scams online.

But viewers will be delighted to learn the e4vening show is set to return after a three-week break on BBC One next Tuesday (August 29) after the Bank Holiday Monday.

The One Show isn’t the only programme which has affected by the schedule shake up over the last few weeks, after EastEnders was replaced with live coverage of the World Athletics Championships which is currently taking place in the heart of Budapest.

Soaps fans were furious to find out Mondays’ episodes of EastEnders was axed for live coverage of the sports events, meaning there is a double bill of episodes on Tuesdays from 7pm.

The schedule changes don’t end there because there will be no episode on Wednesday but on Thursday fans will be treated to an hour-long episode of Cindy Beale’s return to Albert Square.

Alex revealed the BBC show would be taking an extended break on August 4 as she thanked viewers for their continued support.

She said: “Thank you very much to all of our guests tonight, we are on a three-week break now, aren’t we?

“We’re on holiday, so we'll see you back her on Tuesday, August 29. But in the meantime, look out for Roman here on a brand-new quiz show called The Finish Line, coming soon to BBC. Have a lovely summer, bye!”

The Finish Line, which started on Monday (August 21), sees five contestants battle against each other for the chance to win a cash prize.

Roman, who is the son of Spandau Ballet legend Martin Kemp, said co-hosting the show was “a massive moment in my career.”

Alex’s announcement came days after Gethin Jones revealed the BBC breakfast show Morning Love would also be taking a brief hiatus from schedules over summer.
