The One Show will not be airing tonight (Friday 17th November) as the BBC faces a scheduling shake-up.


The long-standing TV series usually airs on BBC One every night, providing viewers with the latest topical stories and celebrity interviews at 7pm sharp.

However, in light of Children in Need 2023, the schedule for BBC One this week has been adjusted slightly.

So, without further ado, read on for all the details regarding how to watch the teatime staple this week.

Why isn't The One Show on TV tonight?

The One Show won't be airing in its usual spot tonight (Friday 17th December).

Alex Jones announced the news on Thursday night’s show (16th November), revealing that Children in Need will air at 7pm on BBC One instead.

The annual fundraiser will see a dazzling line-up of celebrity presenters hosting the event to raise money for charity.

With three hours of comedy, music and surprise guests, the fundraiser will be "jam-packed evening of sketches and performances featuring well-known faces as you've never seen them before".

Children in Need will air until 10pm, and will be followed by BBC News at 10.

When will The One Show be back on BBC One?

Alex Jones and Jermaine Jenas will be back to present the show.

The One Show will next air on Monday 20th November at 7pm on BBC One.
