Fans of The One Show will have to go without their usual fix on Monday, as it’s being replaced by a documentary on footballer Marcus Rashford.
The One Show usually airs nightly from Monday to Friday on BBC One, but the series is heading off air until the New Year.
It’s not unusual for TV schedules to mix things up over the Christmas break and The One Show’s host Alex Jones revealed on Friday night that the programme will be taking something of a hiatus over the next week or so.
Why is The One Show not on tonight?
The One Show will go on a break as of tonight, with Marcus Rashford: Feeding Britain’s Children set to air instead at 7pm.
The documentary will follow the Manchester United footballer and his campaign for children from poorer backgrounds in England to get free meals during the school holidays.
Drawing on his own experience of going without food when he was younger, Marcus meets and speaks with other families going through similar situations in order to highlight the importance of free meals being available throughout the long school breaks.
When will The One Show return to TV?
The One Show is being taken off air until the New Year and is set to return to TV early next year.
Host Alex and fellow presenter Jermaine Jenas will be back to bring viewers up to date stories from across the country, with The One Show resuming business as usual and airing from Monday to Friday from January 4.
According to the BBC’s website, Alex will be joined by McFly star Harry Judd on January 8 to present the show.
Friday’s episode of The One Show saw Gary Barlow play out the show with a performance of his festive hit Incredible Christmas.
‘A massive Merry Christmas to all our The One Show viewers,’ the show’s official Twitter account tweeted alongside of Gary singing.
‘We’ll see you next year! Until then here’s the amazing @GaryBarlow playing us out with ‘Incredible Christmas! and we very much hope it is.’
The One Show returns to BBC One at 7pm on Monday January 4, 2021.
