Steph's Packed Lunch Recommissioned For Channel 4

News Image
Expectation and Can Can Productions have been commissioned to continue making weekday lunchtime show Steph's Packed Lunch for Channel 4 through 2022.

The recommission will see Steph McGovern continue to host the 100-minute daily format live from Leeds Dock, bringing viewers a daily dose of entertainment, lifestyle and consumer news with celebrity guests, fantastic food and captivating real-life stories.

Steph's Packed Lunch launched in September 2020, airing from 12.30pm to 2.10pm on Channel 4. The show continues to grow its audience for both volume and share. Since returning from its summer break, the average audience share of 3.2% is double the share average for the same time last year. The show also continues to build a strong digital presence, with content from Steph’s Packed Lunch having 19.7M views on Facebook in 2021 so far.

Steph McGovern will continue to be joined by the regular on-screen family of well-known faces including Anton du Beke, Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, John Whaite, Denise van Outen, Freddy Forster and Gareth Thomas who, between them, deliver a mix of topics from cookery to consumer items.

Steph commented: "I love making Steph's Packed Lunch! It's so nice to work alongside my fab onscreen family and the amazing team who graft so hard behind the scenes. Together we’ve done some great things I'm really proud of; from encouraging women to have a smear test – I even had mine live on TV! – to helping people get back into work through our Job Clinic. We’ve tackled so many real issues that affect all our lives, welcomed so many big celeb names to Leeds Dock and met shed loads of inspirational people. I’m buzzing that we’re going to keep doing it next year!"

Jo Street, Head of Daytime and Features for Channel 4, said: "We are thrilled that Steph's daily live show has doubled its audience share in the last year. The series has grown and developed so much and we can’t wait for viewers to see what’s next from the talented team at Leeds Dock."
