Kym Marsh and Gethin Jones will return for a second series of BBC Daytime show 'Morning Live' early next year
'Morning Live' is returning for a second series.
The BBC Daytime show has averaged an audience of 1.4 million each day since it launched at the end of October, and presenter Kym Marsh, who co-hosts the show with Gethin Jones, "can't wait" to return to the programme in early 2021.
She said: "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 added: "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."
The show features topical content, celebrity guests, and expert guidance, including medical updates from Dr Xand van Tulleken, and the latest advice on security and scams from Rav Wilding.
What's more, Anna Haugh is on hand with recipes and food tips, Will Kirk has brought DIY expertise each week, and Dr James Greenwood – along with Oliver the dog – has shared weekly veterinary guidance.
They will all return for the new series and will all feature in today’s (18.12.20) final episode of the series.
Carla-Maria Lawson, Head of BBC Daytime and Early-Peak, said: "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!"
