The One Show will feature its own summer festival in early August.

The BBC’s popular teatime magazine show, hosted by Alex Jones and Matt Baker, will be going on its summer holidays to Weston-super-Mare for two days in August.

It will broadcast from the seafront with a free family event open to all visitors that includes a special seaside-themed medley by The One Show Choir, led by Carrie Grant.

There’ll also be a Strictly-inspired dance class, a wildlife show and themed zones including history, sport, art and science.

Alex said: “The One Show Summer Festival will be two fantastic days at the seaside. I can’t wait to get back to Weston-super-Mare again; I’ve only been once before and it was a scorcher of a day, so I’m fully expecting the same weather this year!”

The festival will run across August 6 and 7 with a live broadcast from the beach on August 7.
