Marsh, 43, said: “The last couple of months of lockdown has presented challenges for families across the country, often unsure of where to turn for advice.

“I’m looking forward to starting this new series with Matt, to help tackle some of the problems people are facing, reassuring viewers with top tips and advice from some of the nation’s leading consumer experts.”

Marsh and Allwright will present from The One Show’s studios with social-distancing measures in place.

Allwright said: “I can’t wait to get started on this new show.

“People’s lives have been turned upside down, and I hope that Kym and I can be part of the process of helping to get them back into some order.
