 Paul O'Grady moves to Channel 4
Three of the biggest names in TV entertainment, Paul O’Grady and husband and wife presenting team, Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan, are joining forces in a new teatime line up on Channel 4.

The three daytime stars have all agreed to share the 5pm slot on the channel throughout the year.

Paul O’Grady is joining Channel 4 on a two-year deal to present a new five days a week talk show at 5pm for half the year. Production details are still being finalised but the show is expected to be on air on Channel 4 in the spring of this year.

At the same time Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan have agreed an extension to their existing contract with Channel 4 and will continue to present their successful tea-time magazine show, Richard & Judy, for the other half of the year.

Kevin Lygo, Channel 4’s Director of Television, said: “Daytime is currently one of the fiercest battlegrounds and so to have three of the biggest names in daytime TV joining forces on Channel 4 is a fantastic coup for us. Alongside a resurgent Countdown and the ratings smash hit, Deal or No Deal, Channel 4 will be packing an incredibly powerful punch in the afternoon and early evening.

“Paul is one of the warmest and wittiest presences on television and we’re absolutely thrilled to welcome him back to Channel 4. Richard and Judy have been tremendous performers for us at teatime, both in terms of ratings and reputation, and we’re delighted that they’ve committed to us for at least another year.“

Richard Madeley said: “This is terrific news – we are old mates of Paul’s and used to work really well together on This Morning. It’s great that we are not having to trade punches with each other any more now he’s joining the Channel 4 team.”

Paul O’Grady added: “It’s lovely to share the line-up with Richard and Judy and make Channel 4 the only place to be at teatime. My time at ITV with The Paul O’Grady Show surpassed all my expectations and I’m indebted to everybody who worked on it and watched it; but I work best when I’m set a new challenge and am forced to fly by the seat of my pants. A move to Channel 4 does exactly that and I look forward to a fresh start and feeling sick with nerves again.”

O’Grady has most recently been fronting The Paul O’Grady Show on ITV 1 but has been out of contract with the broadcaster since the end of last year. His new contract with Channel 4 is not exclusive but prevents him from continuing to present this ITV daytime show.
