Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer are to join Channel 4 for a new show called Sunday Brunch, the broadcaster has confirmed.
The Something for the Weekend presenters will move to the channel in March to front the new programme.
Lovejoy and chef Rimmer said in a statement:
"We have a great laugh working together and we're very pleased we can continue that in our new home."
Dominic Bird, Head of Formats, Channel 4, added:
"Simon and Tim have brilliant on screen chemistry and their partnership will be at the heart of Sunday Brunch. They're a great fit for Channel 4 and we can't wait to get going on the new show."
Sunday Brunch promises a mix of "wit, chat and banter", celebrity guests and cookery; a similar line-up to that of axed BBC show, Something for the Weekend.
It was announced that Something for the Weekend - which is also presented by former Eternal singer Louise Redknapp - was to end earlier this year, after a run of almost six years.
A number of celebrities joined a campaign to save the show, including Lisa Faulkner and Professor Brian Cox.
