Watch: Steph McGovern launches Channel 4’s new daytime show from her kitchen


Channel 4’s new daytime show launched yesterday – from host Steph McGovern’s kitchen.

The new series had been due to be based in front of a live studio audience from a studio at Leeds Dock.

But with the current restrictions regarding social distancing and government advice to stay at home, Channel 4 decided to bring the launch forward and broadcast it direct from McGovern’s own home.

Describing it as “like the Yorkshire Big Brother but with one contestant”, McGovern gave viewers a tour around her kitchen – where there were four camera rigs – before settling at her breakfast bar.

She then revealed there was a suitably distanced team in a neighbouring van.

McGovern said she wanted to create “a power hour of positivity… we want to come together in this hour and have a bit of a laugh, maybe get inspired, maybe learn some new things as well”.
