Steph’s Packed Lunch in major show shake-up as host replaced by two TV legends

Steph’s Packed Lunch will face a major shake-up next week when Denise Van Outen and Johnny Vaughan step in to host.

The hit Channel 4 show, which premiered back in 2020, is usually fronted by Steph McGovern.

But next Tuesday (June 13) when viewers tune in for their daily afternoon of fun, food and news, the programme will look a lot different.

As instead of Steph, it will be telly legends Denise and Johnny who will be hosting the daytime show – live from Leeds.

The pair will team up together for the first time in two decades to hold down the fort, while Steph takes a break from the show.

Denise and Johnny first struck up a friendship back in the 90s when they worked together on the iconic Channel 4 show The Big Breakfast.

The last time the dynamic duo hosted a show together was the 2004 BBC series Passport to Paradise.

Speaking on Steph’s Pack Lunch on Tuesday (June 6), Denise said: “We speak all the time and we keep saying we need to do something together and this just feels like the perfect time for us. I can’t wait, I’m so excited.”

It’s not the only shake-up to happen on Steph’s packed lunch recently.

On May 25, the show was hosted by double BAFTA-winning actress Anna Maxwell Martin for one day.

Anna joined the Steph’s Packed Lunch team live in Leeds, making her live daytime TV presenting debut.

What’s more, in April it was revealed that Steph's Packed Lunch would air for an extra half hour, starting at the earlier time of 12pm every weekday.

The extra long show and earlier start time kicked off after the programme's Easter break, on Monday, April 17.

Steph announced the news during the show which aired on Friday, March 31.

She told studio audiences and viewers at home: "I am very excited to finally be able to tell you… we are getting even more packed because we are getting an extra 30 minutes added to the show!"

Steph's Packed Lunch is broadcast live from Leeds Docks and the broadcaster is joined by different co-hosts for each episode.

Regular co-hosts include comedian Russell Kane, former footballer turned presenter Chris Kamara and Strictly Come Dancing judge Anton Du Beke.
