Richard & Judy are coming BACK to Channel 4 – with their Book Club

There’s good news and bad news for Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan.

After being sensationally dropped by digital channel Watch (because people weren’t) it seems their Book Club has been snapped up as a stand-alone programme by those nice people at Channel 4. Hurrah!

The only hitch, however, is that the husband and wife’s presenting skills will not be required when the series, made by Cactus TV, launches on More4.

My source reveals: “The Book Club was a very successful part of Richard and Judy’s C4 show. Sales of the books featured went through the roof.

“This time around it was felt that a new presenter or two would work better. There are some great names in the frame.”

Oh dear. Well, at least R& J will have time this summer to catch up with a spot of, erm, reading.
