The One Show backlash: BBC fans slam the new set as “garish” and “awful.”
THE ONE Program’s iconic interior set has been entirely revamped, and viewers of the nighttime chat show aren’t happy.
On last night’s broadcast of The One Show, Jermaine Jenas and Samantha Quek took over hosting responsibilities while regular host Alex Jones is on maternity leave. However, this wasn’t the only alteration that drew viewers’ notice; the BBC series’ new set sparked a Twitter frenzy.
Following the series’ new set redesign, fans have reacted negatively to the most recent episode of The One Show.
The distinctive green sofas from BBC One’s regular chat program have been retained, but in a slightly different hue.
The surrounding set, on the other hand, has been given a total makeover, which spectators haven’t taken well.
On Tuesday, a number of viewers flocked to Twitter to express their displeasure with the show’s contentious new appearance.
“The new set up is horrible, the color palette is all wrong,” one social media user said.
“I believe you should have kept to the adage, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’”
The show’s new sofas have been branded “garish,” while the whole ensemble has been dubbed “grim.”
“The @BBCTheOneShow studio looks like the set of a 90s Saturday morning children’s show,” said another viewer.
The show’s new set has two green sofas, but the presenters are now situated against a blue backdrop with many screens and orange paneling.
The classic new design is completed by a round orange rug and two circular coffee tables.
The One Show’s previous set, which included lime green sofas, a startling blue interior, and a translucent coffee table, has been replaced by the new set.
Jermaine Jenas and Samantha Quek interrogated Hollywood actor Billy Crystal on Tuesday’s show, which also included comic Lee Mack in the studio.

In addition, regular host Alex Jones joined us via video call with a quick update after her maternity leave in August.
The TV host unveiled her new baby daughter, whom she teased had been named in a “traditional” manner.
Meanwhile, James Nesbitt’s peculiar brows elicited some perplexed reactions from unwitting observers.
Unfortunately, it appears that Alex’s absence was overshadowed by the show’s controversial new format.
“That new set for #TheOneShow is terrible. Another Twitter user said, “Looks like something out of a 1970s waiting room.”
On Twitter, a fan-made poll about the new set was created, with the remark “It’s dreadful” earning the vast majority of votes.
Hopefully, viewers will be able to. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
