Shorter I assume (two properties instead of three?) as otherwise there'd only a 15 minute gap between Hammer and Bargain Hunt.

Schedule currently shows Daily Kitchen 10-10:45 then homes under the hammer 10:45-11:45 which leaves the typical 11:45-12:15 slot free for something else (night force for the first week).
Contrary to that tweet, which says Daily Kitchen is on until 11. You'd think the host would know how long his show is!

Her, or their. Not his.
Hello, good evening, and remain indoors.

Whoops, sorry. Saw the name Jack and assumed it was a guy. Embarassed

Jack Monroe's the perfect choice for this.


Indeed, Jack has published works that are ideal for this exact situation, and has actually lived in poverty for a significant period to actually develop a range of realistic recipes. Jack's been on BBC Radio 5 Live in the afternoons recently - both fluently spoken and knowledgeable.

Nadiya Hussain immediately came to mind, but actually John Torode and Lisa Faulkner would be ideal considering they share a household.

Yeah, none of those are suited in the same way.

Suited to what exactly?

It is widely acknowledged that this crisis is a chance for the BBC to step up to the plate and prove its worth to the nation as a PSB. A huge "get the nation cooking on a budget" campaign would be a brilliant opportunity to do this, but it would need someone with a wider appeal.

And this show will be going head to head with This Morning, which has proved itself to be public service broadcasting personified over the last few weeks.

Like I said, I'm amazed the BBC haven't signed Jack up before, but for this slot? It's a misfire.

Name one (living) chef, just one, who has done more for people who need to cook on a budget, or to cook from their store cupboard?

it would need someone with a wider appeal.


Never mind them adapting the widely recognised Saturday Kitchen brand, or that Matt Tebbutt (a Saturday Kitchen regular) is also going to be there.
