“It’s an exciting new chapter for the show and we look forward to viewers seeing more of Roman.”
Roman added, “I am extremely excited to be a permanent presenter on The One Show. I’ve had so much fun filming with the team on the sofa for the last year already.
“It’s a dream come true to be in prime timewith the best current topic and entertainment for the nation.”
Lauren Laverne has also been given a regular spot on the sofa, while Ronan Keating remains an important part of the One Show family and continues to host shows.
Ronan, 46, said about himon the show: “I’ve enjoyed being part of the hosting team on The One Show and I’ve had the best years working with Alex, Jermaine and the entire team.”
