Channel 4 has announced that Steph McGovern will front a new daytime show live from Leeds Dock.

The Steph Show is set to air this spring and will be filmed in front of a live studio audience.

“We’ve chosen a brilliant location for our studio in Leeds. We’ve got a lush view over the canal and we’ll be able to have a good nosey at all the people out and about round the Docks,” said McGovern.

“Given it’s a live show who knows what might happen! I’m really chuffed, it’s a cracking spot and I can’t wait to welcome my guests to the studio, not to mention the studio audience and viewers at home. Not long to go now!”

The series is described as a mixture of “entertainment, lifestyle and light current affairs with a variety of guests from the worlds of showbiz, politics and beyond.”

“As a proud Yorkshireman who had to schlep to London for work, I’m thrilled we’re opening a studio with the best view in Britain for the exclusive use of Channel 4’s The Steph Show,” said Executive Producer, Ben Wicks.

“Our view will take in the stunning Leeds Dock, parts of the city’s skyline, the water taxi, and, most impressively of all, the people of mighty Leeds - perfect for a show that is for the people and starring the people, inside the studio and out.”

It’s being produced by Expectation in partnership with West Yorkshire-based Can Can Productions. The executive producers are Rebecca Papworth for Can Can Productions and Ben Wicks for Expectation.
