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 magazine 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 are accused of ripping viewers off.

Carla-Maria Lawson, BBC Head of Daytime and Early Peak, said: “Watchdog has been tenaciously fighting for viewers rights since the strand started 40 years ago within Nationwide, so it’s fitting that in its anniversary year we are able to open up the potential for viewers to connect with the brand through The One Show.”

Rob Unsworth, Editor, The One Show, added: ”Bringing the quality, investigative journalism of the much-loved and trusted Watchdog brand to viewers year-round is an exciting move and a great opportunity for The One Show; and means that more than ever the team can react on behalf of consumers whenever stories come up.”
