Axed BBC show Something For The Weekend is to be revived by Channel 4 - but without Louise Redknapp.

The popular Sunday morning magazine programme was recently dropped by BBC One to the consternation of viewers.

But presenters Tim Lovejoy and chef Simon Rimmer are now to launch a series made by the same production company for C4, similarly featuring chat, guests and cookery.

However the new programme, Sunday Brunch, will no longer include former chart star Louise, one of the mainstays of SFTW.

A Channel 4 spokesman said: "We felt that the partnership between Tim and Simon needed to be at the heart of the new show which is why they will be the two hosts."

The new programme will launch next month.

Channel 4 head of formats Dominic Bird said: "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."

Writing stories gives you an opportunity to explore different ways of life without abandoning your own comfortable niche. Keep your project secret until you're satisfied with the results. A critic could take the wind out of your sails.More
