Roman Kemp has become an official co-host on The One Show, partnering with Alex Jones, and joining forces with Jermaine Jenas.

Roman’s face will be recognisable to viewers, given that he stepped in as a guest host for the show last year; since then, he has captured the hearts of the audience.

The One Show graces the screens of BBC One on weeknights at 7pm, captivating a consistent viewership of 3 million, through a blend of current affairs from all corners of the UK, appearances by renowned personalities in the studio, and cherished performances.

Joanne Vaughan-Jones, Editor of The One Show says: “We’re thrilled to have Roman join us as a regular One Show host alongside Alex and Jermaine on the sofa. It’s an exciting new chapter for the show, and we’re looking forward to viewers seeing even more of Roman.”

Roman Kemp says: “I’m very excited to become a permanent presenter on The One Show, I have had so much fun filming with the team already over the past year on the sofa. It’s a dream-come true to be on prime-time BBC One, bringing the best topical news and entertainment to the nation.”

Lauren Laverne has also been given a regular spot on the sofa, with Ronan Keating remaining a key part of The One Show family and continuing to host shows.

Ronan Keating says: “I have loved being part of The One Show presenting team and I’ve had the best few years working alongside Alex, Jermaine and the whole team. I’ll be doing less shows this year due to my performing and recording schedule but I’m still very much part of the family and wish Roman the best of luck”.

Other members of the programme’s extended family of presenters will continue to co-host episodes across the year, and Matt Allwright and Nikki Fox will continue with their hosting duties on Watchdog.

The One Show airs at 7pm each weekday evening on BBC One, it is a BBC Studios production.
