The BBC has announced a new daytime series, HealthCheck UK Live, to offer advice and companionship during the Coronavirus lockdown.
TV presenter Michelle Ackerley, Dr Xand van Tulleken, broadcaster Angela Rippon, and fitness instructor Mr Motivator will be keeping their audience company, as well as offering their expertise on how to keep healthy and happy while homebound.
The list of topics so far includes how best to boost your immunity, how to beat boredom and stay active.
Dr Xand van Tullekan said: “During this uncertain period it is essential that viewers feel connected and positive.
“HealthCheck UK Live will be an upbeat and friendly platform from which audiences can get trusted, accurate medical advice, while also supporting those who feel lonely or need a lift during this time.”
The series marks the return of the legendary Mr Motivator, who’s best known for his work on GMTV clad in his signature jazzy spandex.
He said: “Now more than ever it is important to keep our bodies and minds healthy. Everybody say yeah, let’s get happy and be wicked at home!”
HealthCheck UK Live will begin airing on BBC One on weekdays at 10am from 30 March.
