Today With Des And Mel, 2002

Just after his Des O’Connor Tonight show ended Des was back.  This time on daytime TV with a glamorous co-host in the form of Melanie Sykes.

The chemistry between the two hosts was dynamite and the result was another success for Des as the ratings were huge.  So much so that at one point ITV were lining the duo up for an evening slot.

Whilst the evening show sadly never materialised, for a short time it did go out in 5pm slot during January 2005.

Today With Des And Mel ran for a massive 231 episodes between 2002 and 2006.


Des O’Connor and Melanie Sykes are your hosts for a show featuring celebrity guests, phone-in competitions and chat between the hosts.
