The BBC has taken the decision not to replace One Show co-host Matt Baker.
The popular television personality will co-host The One Show for the final time tonight – but he’ll be doing it from his home. Baker, who joined the show in 2011, is currently self-isolating at home.
A number of familiar faces to the One Show audience will join Alex Jones on a rotating basis. The BBC say this will include a mixture of men and women.

Matt Baker joined the show back in 2011, replacing comedian Jason Manford who was forced to quit after a short stint. Baker will continue to present Countryfile and BBC sport coverage.
