Eat Well & Shop Well for Less? Returning to BBC One


BBC One has ordered more episodes of Eat Well for Less? and Shop Well for Less?, including a holiday special, from Banijay’s RDF TV West.

BBC One commissioned six additional episodes of each show, marking the sixth season of Eat Well and the fourth installment of Shop Well. The popular prime-time lifestyle formats are respectively led by MasterChef’s Gregg Wallace and Britain’s Best Home Cook’s Chris Bavin, and The One Show’s Alex Jones and BBC Breakfast’s Steph McGovern.

Jo Scarratt-Jones, the deputy head of RDF West, commented: “We’re so happy to be bringing back both Eat Well for Less? and Shop Well for Less? for BBC One. Gregg, Chris, Alex and Steph are all looking forward to meeting new families to help them—and us—show how to shop and eat well for less! And to be able to do a Shop Well for Less? Christmas special is a real treat. Christmas is a time when families can often forget the good shopping habits they have, as they are blinded by blinging baubles and get caught up in the festive spirit! Steph and Alex will show us all that Christmas really doesn’t have to cost a packet.”

BBC Commissioning Editor Ricky Cooper added: “We’re delighted to bring back two series that are so perennially popular with BBC One’s audience. Taking us into family homes all across the U.K., both series are set to deliver our most entertaining and money-saving blend of tips, tests and swaps yet.”
