New weekend series with Aled Jones coming soon to ITV
 
ITV Daytime has commissioned a new chat show for weekend mornings, Weekend, a production by Cactus TV.
 
Presented by Aled Jones, Weekend (42 x 60’) will feature a mix of music and entertainment to give weekend mornings a feel good start.
 
Each hour long episode - which will air on Saturday and Sunday mornings - will play to Aled’s love of music by centring around a main musical guest who will chat and perform songs from their past and present repertoire. Two further guests from the world of entertainment will also join the show to speak to Aled and be a part of the relaxed weekend atmosphere.
 
Aled Jones said: “What more can I ask for than a mix of all of the things I love!  It’s a dream come true to present a show I’ve always wanted to watch and I can't wait to get started.”
 
ITV Director of Daytime, Helen Warner said: “It’s fantastic to have Aled hosting our new weekend morning shows. A mix of good company, great music and entertaining guests make for the perfect relaxing weekend.”
 
Amanda Ross, Cactus joint Managing Director added: “Cactus are really looking forward to working with Aled on Weekend. It’ll be great for the viewers to spend quality time with him and enjoy long form interviews with his guests.”
