Social media helps BBC keep its relationship going with Chris and Rosie Ramsey

The Chris & Rosie Ramsey Show sees the pair interview celeb couples

The BBC has renewed comedy entertainment series The Chris & Rosie Ramsey Show, thanks partly to its strong performance on social media.

The series will return to the BBC in 2023, having recently concluded its first season on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer.

The UK pubcaster cited “huge amounts of positive engagement on social media” among the reasons that the show, which sees the Ramseys interview well-known couples about their relationships, would be returning for another 6×45′ run.

One segment, featuring comedian Lou Sanders, garnered 2.5 million views on TikTok alone, the BBC said.

Guests on the first season included Jamie Laing and Sophie Habboo, Martin and Shirlie Kemp, Craig Revel Horwood and Jonathan Myring, Martine McCutcheon and Jack McManus, and Tom Fletcher and Giovanna Fletcher.

The series came after the success of the Ramseys’ hit podcast Sh**ged.Married.Annoyed and is produced by Avalon.

Katie Taylor, commissioning editor for BBC entertainment, said: “Chris and Rosie Ramsey helped share the raw and funny side of both celebrities and members of the public’s relationships, where we saw something of ourselves in each and every one.”

It was commissioned by Phillips in her former role as BBC director of entertainment. The executive producers for Avalon are Richard Allen-Turner, Jon Thoday and Robyn O’Brien. The commissioning editor for the BBC is Taylor.
