It has been confirmed that Christine Bleakley will host ITV’s This Morning in 2015.
Bleakley will present the programme with Philip Schofield from January 5 next year. Current host Amanda Holden will re-join the show in February half term until Holly Willoughby returns from maternity leave.
The former Dancing on Ice presenter has hosted This Morning before:
“It’s always a joy to host This Morning and to see my good friend Philip. We always have fun together, and I can’t wait to see the whole team again.”
Philip Schofield explained that he is looking forward to working with Bleakley again:
“Naturally I miss Holly very much, but I do consider myself a very lucky man to get to work on This Morning alongside very talented, beautiful and funny women! I always have a great time with Christine and Amanda.”
This Morning’s editor Pete Ogden said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be welcoming both Christine and Amanda back on to the show next year.
“From the start of the New Year we will be focusing on the wellbeing of our viewers and to keep them feeling positive and happy despite many Christmas bills or stress they might have – we’ll have heaps of top advice to make January a month to look forward to!”
This Morning air at 10:30am every weekday on ITV.
