Lovejoy, Rimmer move to Channel 4

Tim and Simon are set for Channel 4

Something for the Weekend’s Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer are to join Channel 4 for a new show called Sunday Brunch, it has been confirmed.

The pair will move to the channel in March to front the new programme.

Presenter Lovejoy and chef Rimmer said in a statement:

“We’re chuffed to be joining Channel 4. We have a great laugh working together and we’re very pleased we can continue that in our new home.”

Dominic Bird, who commissioned the new weekend show, added:

“Simon and Tim have brilliant on screen chemistry and their partnership will be at the heart of Sunday Brunch. They’re a great fit for Channel 4 and we can’t wait to get going on the new show.”

Sunday Brunch promises a mix of celebrity guests, cookery and “wit, chat and banter”; a remarkably similar line-up to that of axed BBC show, Something for the Weekend.

It was announced that Something for the Weekend – which is also presented by former Eternal singer Louise Redknapp – was getting the chop earlier this year, after a run of nearly six years.

A number of celebrities joined a high profile campaign to save the show, including Professor Brian Cox and Lisa Faulkner.
