Roman Kemp has officially joined The One Show as a co-host, partnering with Alex Jones, alongside Jermaine Jenas.
Roman's face is likely recognizable to audiences as he stepped in as a guest host last year and has since become a beloved figure on the show.
Broadcasting weeknights at 7pm on BBC One, The One Show captures the attention of around 3 million viewers regularly. The show offers a blend of current stories from across the UK, notable studio guests, and cherished talents.
Joanne Vaughan-Jones, Editor of The One Show, expressed excitement about Roman's addition: "We're delighted to welcome Roman as a permanent member of The One Show hosting team, joining Alex and Jermaine on the couch. This marks an exciting new chapter for the show, and we're eagerly anticipating viewers getting to see more of Roman."
Roman Kemp shares his enthusiasm for his new role: "Becoming a regular presenter on The One Show is a source of great excitement for me. I've thoroughly enjoyed my time with the team over the past year on the sofa. It's truly a dream come true to have a spot-on BBC One during prime-time, delivering top-notch news and entertainment to the nation."
In addition to Roman's new role, Lauren Laverne will be a consistent presence on the show's sofa. Ronan Keating, a longstanding member of The One Show family, will continue to be a part of the team while managing a slightly reduced schedule due to his commitments in performing and recording.
Ronan Keating remarks, "Being a part of The One Show's presenting team has been an incredible experience, and I've thoroughly enjoyed working alongside Alex, Jermaine, and the entire team. While my appearances this year will be fewer due to my music-related obligations, I'm still very much a part of the family and wish Roman all the best."
The show's extended family of presenters will continue to make appearances throughout the year, with Matt Allwright and Nikki Fox continuing their hosting responsibilities on Watchdog.
The One Show, a production by BBC Studios, airs at 7pm every weekday on BBC One.
