The One Time Only Show

Brucie and Tess, the Hairy Bikers and, er, Sam and Mark – just a few of the BBC double acts staking their place in TV history (or not if your names are Sam and Mark).   


These are the ranks the One Show’s new hosts, Welsh presenter, Alex Jones, and Manchester comedian, Jason Manford, have to aspire to and it seems they have adopted a novel approach in pleasing the show’s fans: Alex has become a clone of ex-host Christine Bleakley and although Manford promised more laughs than Adrian Chiles, he appears to have taken a leaf out of Adrian’s book and looks uninterested at all times.    

High-profile guests normally frequent the plush sofa, yet the producers seem to have forgotten this for the newbies. 

Yes, Hollywood legend, Whoopie Goldberg, topped the bill for the pair’s first show, but last night’s show featured ex-Baywatch star, Pamela Anderson and tonight’s star guest was a big, black rat – Clearly the show’s budget went on Whoopie.
Perhaps they aren’t up there with the best of the BBC just yet, but they have half an hour a day to win us over…If you will watch again that is. 
The One Show is broadcast on BBC 1 weeknights at 7pm or you can catch up via iPlayer.
