The One Show cancelled: BBC show won’t air tonight in schedule shake-up


The One Show airs every weeknight on BBC One but this evening the magazine show has been cancelled in a huge schedule shake-up. The Big Night In is taking over the channel for one night only as Comic Relief and BBC Children In Need combine forces for the first time to encourage viewers to donate to help frontline staff fighting coronavirus and all essential works who are helping to keep the country running during the crisis. 


The One Show has been booted from its usual slot of 7pm as The Big Night In kicks off at this time.

But fans of the BBC Magazine will be able to catch Alex Jones when the show returns tomorrow evening.

Alex and co-host Patrick Kielty will be joined by singer Josh Groban who’s been posting songs from his shower during lockdown. 

Earlier this month, Alex said an emotional goodbye to her The One Show co-host Matt Baker.
