Davina McCall becomes the first female chat show host for the BBC

9th December 2005

Davina McCall's new BBC1 show will be shown on Wednesdays at 8pm. It will be the first time since Terry Wogan quit BBC1 14 years ago that the channel has had a pre-watershed talk show.

Davina will run for about eight weeks from the start of next year. Each week Davina will interview guests from the worlds of film, television and showbusiness, as well as a musician who will perform in the studio. The line-up for the pilot, made several weeks ago, included the singer Charlotte Church, the comedian Peter Kay and the EastEnders actor Nigel Harman.

BBC1 has been searching for a new talkshow presenter since Michael Parkinson defected to ITV last year which will complement the Jonathan Ross show that occupies a later evening slot on BBC1 on Friday.
