Martin & Roman’s Weekend Best is set to liven up ITV's weekend schedule in April. 

The father and son duo will be returning to our screens following the success of their first series. The new series will air on both Saturdays and Sundays, and each episode will be an hour in length.

Speaking about the new series, Martin Kemp said: "Roman and I are ready and raring to go for this new series and can't wait to wake up with viewers on Saturday, as well as Sunday mornings. 

"We've got brilliant guests lined-up and some fantastic new items, too.” 

Roman Kemp added: “I might wind him up (just a bit!) but I love working with my dad. So the fact we get to do the series again - and across the whole weekend - is just brilliant. We've got lots of stuff planned, I can't wait!"
