Daybreak anchor Aled Jones is expected to be leaving the breakfast sofa later this year following Lorraine Kelly’s announcement at the weekend.
ITV confirmed on Saturday that Lorraine Kelly will be leaving Daybreak to concentrate on her lifestyle and magazine show Lorraine five days a week. Her current co-host on Daybreak, Aled Jones, is expected to be axed as ITV bosses hope a new set of fresh faces can lift Daybreak’s ratings.
It’s widely reported that bosses are hoping to seal a deal with BBC Breakfast anchor Susanna Reid, who is said to be looking for her own show. Former Channel 4 Big Breakfast host Richard Bacon is rumoured along with X Factor host Dermot O’Leary as possible co-host with Reid.
Daybreak airs weekdays from 6.00am on ITV.
