Jason Manford is nervous about presenting 'The One Show' but has been receiving help and advice from current temporary hosts Matt Baker and Gabby Logan
Jason Manford is having "sleepless nights" over presenting 'The One Show'.
The comedian and new co-host Alex Jones will front the BBC evening show from next week and Jason admits that he is starting to feel nervous about their debut.
He said: "We start next Monday, so I'm getting nervous now, had a couple of sleepless nights, but it should be alright."
However, Jason admits current temporary hosts Matt Baker and Gabby Logan - who have been fronting the show since the departure of Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley - have been a big help in preparing him and Alex for their debut.
He told Absolute Radio DJ Christian O'Connell: "I've had some run-throughs, and we're heading back down on Friday (13.08.10), to do a day of run-throughs.
"But then, this is a bit weird, because then they've got to actually do the show, so we've got to get out before they get in, you don't want that awkwardness.
"Gabby and Matt are lovely actually, they're giving us lots of advice, which is nice."
