Channel 4 has confirmed that Steph McGovern's lunchtime show Steph's Packed Lunch will remain on air throughout this year and next.

The magazine show - launched during the first coronavirus lockdown in March 2020 - airs Monday to Friday between 12.30pm and 2.10pm, live from Leeds Dock.

After some initial ratings wobbles, the programme has steadily grown a dedicated audience and is currently averaging around 200,000 viewers every day.

Announcing the recommission, C4's head of daytime Jo Street said: "I am chuffed to bits to see Steph's Packed Lunch go from strength to strength, it's a confident, modern, upbeat and feel-good show – just like Steph herself - and she and the brilliant team who make it more than deserve all the award nominations.

"We are so pleased to have commissioned it for an extended run and can't wait to see what more there is to come from the gang at Leeds Dock."

McGovern said: "Eeee, I can't believe it. We started the show in my living room in a lockdown, and now we're nominated for a BAFTA.

"I'm so proud of my brilliant team who have made this show a place where we can all have a laugh together, meet people with extraordinary stories and tackle real issues.

"I also love that we're broadcasting live every day from Leeds, which has meant we've been able to create opportunities in and around the area for lots of different people from all walks of life.

"It's great we're going to be able to continue doing that. And I get to carry on doing a job I absolutely love. Win win!"

McGovern is supported on the show by a team of co-hosts including Denise van Outen, Anton Du Beke, Luke Kempner and John Whaite.
