'Martin & Roman’s Weekend Best' will air on Saturday and Sunday mornings on ITV
Martin and Roman Kemp are set to return to ITV's weekend morning schedule.
The 59-year-old star and his son Roman, 28, will reunite to host 'Martin & Roman’s Weekend Best' across both Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Martin said: "Roman and I are ready and raring to go for this new series and can't wait to wake up with viewers on Saturday, as well as Sunday mornings. We've got brilliant guests lined-up and some fantastic new items, too."
Roman is similarly excited about the new series and he can't wait to work with his dad again.
He explained: "I might wind him up – just a bit! – but I love working with my dad. So the fact we get to do the series again – and across the whole weekend – is just brilliant.
"We've got lots of stuff planned, I can't wait!"
'Martin & Roman’s Weekend Best' will begin in April and will see them kick off the weekend with more games and celebrity guests.
Roman previously admitted he loves working with his dad and he appreciates that Martin recognises his specific skill set.
The radio presenter also described them as "best mates".
He shared: "He understands the craft that I have, which is completely different to his, and he asks, ‘What should I do?’ and, ‘How should I do it?’
"It’s amazing for a father and son to work together like that – it’s just best mates helping each other out."
Roman also admitted that the coronavirus lockdown has changed his approach to life.
He said: "I’ve really learnt to disassociate from social pressures. Before, if you went on Instagram and you saw your mates going out, you thought, ‘Ah, I’m missing out, I’d better go out too’. That’s all changed.
"I’m a bit of a hermit anyway, but it’s really nice that it’s made people slow down. Now if you want a weekend at home not doing anything, you’re not afraid to have it."
