Matt Baker, 43, made his return to The One Show tonight, where he talked about Children In Need, Our Farm in the Dales and his upcoming panto role. However, the former One Show presenter also directed a cheeky comment towards fellow guest Rob Beckett, 35, who was there to promote his new book. 

Presenters Alex Scott, 37, and Jermaine Jenas, 38, were joined in The One Show studio by Rob Beckett today and they also saw the return of Matt Baker, who was there to promote the show’s brand new take on the Rickshaw Challenge for Children In Need. 

The pair interviewed Rob about his brand new book, A Class Act, which explores the friction between the UK’s working and middle classes. 

An amusing moment happened, however, towards the end of the show when Alex remembered that Matt had also recently released a book. 

“You’ve got a new book as well Matt coming out,” she recalled. (sic)

“I have yeah. It’s out. It’s been out for two weeks,” Matt confirmed quickly. 

He then went on to make a cheeky jibe at Rob, whose book came out last Thursday. 

“It’s on the Sunday Times Bestseller list, actually Rob,” the presenter quipped. 

As the studio erupted in laughter Rob interjected: “Baker’s unstoppable, he’s a machine, he don’t look back!” (Sic)

In response to this, Matt threw out some general advice to “write about farming” as his book A Year on Our Farm: How the Countryside Made Me has already begun flying off the shelves. 

Joining in on the joke Jermaine said: “It took us a whole show Rob but we finally got the better of you!”

Rob seemed to agree, replying: “Baker’s done me!” 

The comedian was also praised on the show for his frank and candid discussion of mental health.

“The key thing is if you do feel down, just talk,” he said. 

Viewers tuning in were quick to send in messages of appreciation. 

@slinehan1 on Twitter said: “Rob Beckett is just brilliant. 

“Great advice about dealing with mental health issues and he never fails to make me laugh.”

During his time on the programme this week, Matt Baker talked about how The One Show’s annual Rickshaw Challenge would have an exciting new twist for Children in Need 2021.

This year’s challenge will see Matt Baker and a team of five inspiring young people pass the ‘rickshaw baton’ to one another in a relay ride across the UK.

The former One Show host also spoke about going on tour with his new pantomime The Wizard of Oz over the Christmas period. 

The second series of Matt’s new show Our Farm in the Dales will air tonight at 9pm on More4.
