#SundayBrunch to return to Channel 4 this weekend despite #coronavirus - but ...

Sunday Brunch usually airs on Channel 4 between 9:30am and 12:30pm every weekend and sees hosts Tim Lovejoy, 51, and Simon Rimmer, 56, talking with numerous celebrity guests. Unfortunately, the show was cancelled last Sunday as coronavirus fears swept the nation as several live television programmes shut down production. However, fans needn’t worry about not getting their weekly dose of action this week as it’s been revealed the kitchen-based show will be returning.

The programme is scheduled to be just as long and will see the hosts overseeing proceedings as they would usually do.

This will include interviews with famous faces, as well as knocking up some culinary delights in the kitchen.

However, there is a catch as the crew will not be on hand to help with the filming of the show in the studio.

Instead, both Tim and Simon have been busy pre-recording their segments via Skype so viewers don’t miss out this weekend.

Tim revealed the news on his podcast, Dear Lovejoy, today after fears the programme would be off air for the foreseeable.

The presenter assured viewers it would be returning, stating: “We did record a Sunday Brunch today, Simon and myself.

“We did it via Skype in our kitchens so we’re putting that out at the weekend which is exciting with some archive clips of the show.”

Although they managed to get the recordings done, the usual set-up wasn’t without its challenges, as the host explained.
