Sara Cox will present a new Saturday and Sunday morning show on ITV.
The Sara Cox Show will be an hour-long weekly fix of entertainment, live music and culture, with celebrity guests discussing the best in books, theatre, films, television, podcasts and all things to do, see and experience.
Sara said:”I can’t wait to keep people company on a weekend morning as they mooch about in their jamas, making crumpets and sorting the kids out.
“Whether it’s people feeling delicate after a big night out or parents getting ready for an activity filled weekend, I’ll bring them funny, relaxed chat with their favourite stars and no doubt there’ll be some daft capers along the way.
“It’s a dream come true to host a show like this and I hope to brighten up people’s weekends with our great guests and some excellent live music.”
ITV Heads of Daytime Jane Beacon and Clare Ely added: “We’re delighted Sara Cox is joining ITV’s line-up of must-watch weekend morning television. She’s a fantastic broadcaster and we are thrilled to have her.”
Executive Producer of The Sara Cox Show and CEO of production company Cactus, Amanda Ross commented: “I’m sure viewers will love to spend a bit of quality time with Sara! Her natural charm, enthusiasm and energy will make this a really fun watch with plenty of take-away.”
The series follows Zoe Ball on Saturday and Zoe Ball on Sunday which aired on weekend mornings throughout 2018.
Zoe left the series to takeover as the new host of BBC Radio 2 breakfast, replacing Chris Evans.
