Sara Cox to present new show for ITV on Saturday and Sunday mornings
Commissioned by ITV Heads of Daytime Jane Beacon and Clare Ely and Commissioning Editor, Daytime Lara Akeju, The Sara Cox Show (44 x 60’) will 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. 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 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.”
Executive Producer of The Sara Cox Show and CEO of Cactus, Amanda Ross said:
“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 Sara Cox Show is a Cactus production for ITV.
