Steph McGovern announces Channel 4 show Steph’s Packed Lunch is taking a break

Steph McGovern has shared that her popular Channel 4 daytime show Steph's Packed Lunch is taking a break from UK TV screens.

The lunchtime chat show will not air during the seven week academic break for schools in the UK.

Steph launched her very own chat show last year at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

Mid-last year the fun-filled chat show was being broadcast from the Leeds Docks.

The show has been going strong for the past 10 months without a substantial break, however, so this will be the first major gap since the show was first broadcast.

Wrapping the programme on Friday, she said: "So that's it from us today and for the next few weeks as well because we're having a break for the summer.

"But, of course, we're going to be back in September with all your Packed Lunch favourites."

Turning to her co-stars, including football pundit legend Chris Kamara, Steph said: "You're all coming back, aren't you?"

Steph then directly addressed the viewers and shared: "Now, you know, we have been here every lunchtime for the past 10 months.

"And although the world around us has been pretty tough, we've loved being here to keep you company."

Steph continued: "And your loyalty to the show has kept us going so thank you so much. We love reading your comments on our socials and the emails you send as well.

"So, thank you very much for watching. I'm going to be back as well doing the Paralympics breakfast show on Channel 4."

Steph concluded the programme by sharing with viewers that Steph's Packed Lunch will be back on screens on September 6, 2021.

Viewers were disappointed over the news and took to social media to share their thoughts.

One social networker said: "Oh nooooo what am I going to do without #stephspackedlunch on a lunchtime?" (sic)

While another added: "Another good lineup today. Going to miss this show so much. Have a fantastic summer everyone! Look forward to watching again in the autumn. Thanks for giving us a great daytime show."
