Channel 4 plans to bring back The Steph Show from its new studio in Leeds in mid-September.
The show, fronted by former BBC Breakfast presenter Steph McGovern, launched earlier than planned on March 30th from McGovern’s own home because of lockdown.
However, it came off air after just six weeks in late April following reports that neighbours were unhappy with the property being turned into a makeshift television studio. Ratings were also disappointing, with just 234,000 viewers tuning in for the debut episode.
The new run of the show will be from Channel 4’s new studio at Leeds Dock, which had been only partly constructed when lockdown began.
Because of continuing social distancing rules, producers are considering having a small number of “family bubbles” at recordings, rather than a live studio audience, according to Broadcast.
McGovern had announced the postponement of her “locked down” show via Twitter at the end of April, adding that it would return from its permanent home at Leeds Dock in “a couple of months”.
