Sara Cox to present new weekend show for ITV
Updated: Tuesday 5 March 2019

Sara Cox is to present a new show for ITV on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

The hour long show be a 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.

“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,” said Sara.

“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.”

Sara currently hosts Drivetime on BBC Radio 2 from 5-7pm Monday-Friday, but is no stranger to TV.

In 2007, Cox presented The Album Chart Show on Channel 4, and appeared as a guest star on the Sky1 show Angela and Friends in November 2009. She also presented The Great Pottery Throw Down for BBC Two and co-presented Too Much TV, a daily magazine show on BBC Two in 2016.

ITV Heads of Daytime Jane Beacon and Clare Ely said: “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.”

The programme will launch later this year.
