Watchdog moves to new regular slot on The One Show

BBC One’s consumer rights brand, Watchdog is to be given a year-round presence on The One Show - the channel’s flagship live, nightly show.

Matt Allwright and Nikki Fox will continue to be the faces of Watchdog and will investigate and expose the companies, institutions and fraudsters who’re ripping viewers off. Rather than being limited to having their concerns addressed within two limited series a year, viewers will now be able to contact the Watchdog investigations team throughout the year, enabling the brand to be even more responsive to consumer complaints.

Alison Kirkham, Controller, BBC Factual, says: “Nikki and Matt will continue to be the viewers trusted guide as the nation’s leading consumer champion moves to The One Show where it will achieve even greater prominence and success in raising awareness of their rights."
