ITV is expanding the This Morning brand with episodes on Sunday from later this month.
This Morning on Sunday will feature a selection of the funniest, most moving and entertaining moments from the week. The broadcaster has commissioned 10 episodes to air from January 20th at 10.30am.
Eamonn Holmes OBE and Ruth Langsford will host the hour-long shows giving viewers a chance to catch up on all of the best content with handpicked moments for the Sunday editions, as well as some new and exclusive content.

Holly Willoughby added that “lazy Sunday mornings couldn’t get any better” while husband-and-wife team Eamonn and Ruth are also excited, ITV note, to be fronting the programme’s weekend offering.
“We’ll be there on Sundays to put the cherry on top of your best This Morning bits of the week. Not only will anything you’ve missed be featured, Ruth and I will be adding our own fresh content that you won’t have seen,” Eamonn said.
Ruth added, “So stay in your pyjamas, put your feet up and enjoy a Sunday on This Morning with us!”
Martin Frizell, Editor of This Morning notes that the extra show will be “the best of This Morning rolled into one perfectly formed hour” with the show’s usual “warm, inclusive, intelligent and fun tone.”
ITV’s flagship magazine programme has ventured into weekend output previously with Saturday and Sunday highlights shows between 2010-2011. All-new weekday morning editions have aired since October 1988.
