Zoe Ball has landed a new talk show on ITV.

The 47-year-old presenter - who co-hosted kids show "Live and Kicking" with Jamie Theakston on Saturday mornings in the 1990s - is returning to weekend breakfast broadcasting with a new hour-long programme that will air on both Saturdays and Sundays.

Zoe described the series as a "one-stop shop for all you need in the world of entertainment and leisure", and it will feature celebrity guests and live performances from both established stars and up-and-coming artists.

There will also be a culture segment, featuring the latest films and TV shows and the best in books and comedy.

She said in a statement: "I am super excited to return to weekend morning television (a few years on) with a glorious mix of all the things I love - live music from your favourite music stars, great chat with stars of television and big screen and new exciting authors.

The network's Heads of Daytime, Jane Beacon and Clare Ely said: "We are huge fans of Zoe and are thrilled to welcome her to ITV."

The "Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two" presenter was on screen on Wednesday (21.03.18) for a Sport Relief special, "Hardest Road Home", chronicling her 350-mile bike ride, which she undertook in memory of her late boyfriend Billy Yates, who took his own life last year.

And Zoe - who has kids Woody, 17, and Nelly, eight, with her estranged husband, DJ Norman Cook - recently vowed to be more open with her family following her partner's tragic death.

She shared: "It sounds obvious and so simple, but I've learnt that the biggest single act that we can all do to help someone who is really in trouble is to find the courage to ask that person how they are feeling.

"If you don't ask, you can't help. I will also be ­encouraging my own family and kids to talk about their feelings and hopefully the next generation will not feel trapped."
