Morning Live, which has been airing following BBC Breakfast each week day at 9.15am, will return for a second run in early 2021.
The first series has achieved an average audience of 1.4m each day, consistently the most volume in its slot.
Kym Marsh says: “This year has been really challenging and unsettling for us all. To have been able to keep our viewers company, and hopefully bring them a bit of positivity, as well as some useful tips and information, has been a real privilege for Gethin and me. I can’t wait to be back on screen with our Morning Live family and I can’t think of a better team to be beside as we navigate whatever 2021 throws at us.”
Gethin Jones says: “We are delighted to come back with Morning Live! When we started, I described the show as a big group message, and that group has grown. We will continue to work hard to put our audience at the heart of the conversations. See you soon!”
Carla-Maria Lawson, Head of BBC Daytime and Early-Peak says: “We’re delighted to be bringing back Morning Live for 2021. It’s clearly answering a need from viewers for a space where they know their real life concerns are reflected and addressed by trusted experts, as well as offering good company and much needed positivity. I look forward to seeing what the team has got in store for us next year!”
