Why isn't The One Show on tonight? When is it next on TV?

Where did the seven o'clock BBC One staple disappear to?

The One Show viewers were in for a shock last night as Buckingham Palace threw its doors open to the programme.


In a one-off special, the BBC show relocated from its usual home at the Broadcasting House in London to the grand location.

Hosts Alex Jones and Ronan Keating were joined by former member of parliament and TV regular Gyles Brandreth and MasterChef star Monica Galetti for the live broadcast from the blue drawing room in the Palace.

And it looks like viewers are in for another shake-up tonight, as those tuning into BBC One won’t be able to find the programme in its usual spot.

Read on to find out why the popular magazine show will be absent from BBC One this evening.

Why isn't The One Show on TV tonight?

The One Show has become a staple of weekday TV, reliably arriving on BBC One at 7pm each night to give us topical stories and fun interviews whilst the dinner's in the oven – but you won't find the show in its usual spot tonight.

The One Show has been removed from BBC One's schedule to make way for more news broadcasting between 6pm and 7:30pm.

It’s not the first time that the programme has been moved about. Back in July 2021, the show was removed from BBC One’s schedule to make way for Wimbledon 2021 coverage.

And in May, the show was removed from BBC One's schedule to make way for another new Panorama special: Princess Diana, Martin Bashir and The BBC.

When can I next watch it?

Don't worry – The One Show will still air tonight (24th February 2022) on BBC Two at 7pm.

Alex Jones will be presenting the show with Ronan Keating, bringing you the stories that matter from across the country.

The hosts will be joined by Marcus Wareing and Martin Kemp.

The One Show will return to its usual slot on BBC One at 7pm tomorrow (Friday 25th February).


The One Show is back on BBC One on Wednesday night at 7pm. To find out what's on TV tonight, check out our TV Guide.
