'Richard & Judy: Keep Reading' Will See Hosting Duo Make Big TV Return On Channel 4

'Richard & Judy: Keep Reading' Will See Hosting Duo Make Big TV Return On Channel 4

TV favourites Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan are returning to our screens as a duo in Channel 4's brand new show, Richard & Judy: Keep Reading.

Fans of the Richard & Judy chat show back in the day will no doubt remember their Book Club segment -and this new show appears to be somewhat of an extension of this.

The new commission - which will air next month from the couple's own home - will see the former This Morning hosts discussing their favourite books, and (virtually) interviewing authors and celebrity guests about their recent reads.

It will comprise of five half-hour episodes which are to air over the course of a week, starting from the 4th May.

Speaking about the exciting new show, Richard said: "It is no secret that Judy and I are avid readers and we are excited to return to Channel 4 to share what we love with viewers."

Meanwhile, Judy added: "Books can transport you to incredible places from the comfort of your sofa and so there is no better time to share our top picks for lockdown reads and hear from viewers, celebrities and authors about the books that have helped them whilst staying at home."

The signing marks the pair's first TV show on the channel for over a decade, since their chat show left screens all the way back in 2009.
