New Channel 4 Offerings










Channel 4 will help a couple marry in lockdown as part of its plans to help the nation through the coronavirus pandemic.

In Lockdown Wedding Live, viewers will be invited into the special day of a couple who had to cancel their matrimonial plans due to the recent outbreak.

They will still be able to tie the knot thanks to this experimental programme, with Fred Sirieix overseeing the unique ceremony.

Channel 4 will also air Lockdown Academy, a range of new programmes to keep families entertained throughout isolation.

Grayson Perry will create art with the nation, Kirstie Allsopp will share fun craft ideas and Jamie Oliver will be teaching recipes based on cupboard essentials.

In addition, the launch of a new daily show from Steph McGovern has been brought forward to Monday 30 March.

Channel 4 has also rolled out a brand new Stay At Home graphic that will appear on-screen during every programme on all of its channels (including E4, More 4 and Film 4).

Alex Mahon, Chief Executive of Channel 4, said: “In these extremely uncertain and challenging times, public service broadcasters like Channel 4 play a vitally important role in holding our nation together.

“We are here to inform the audience with trusted news and current affairs, to help them stay in touch with what’s going on around them and, just as importantly, to lift them up and make them feel connected with the rest of the world when they are isolated at home.”
