Christine Bleakley is to return to This Morning in 2015 as Holly Willoughby continues her maternity leave.

The former Daybreak presenter, who has previously filled in as a co-host, will join Phillip Schofield on the show when it returns from its Christmas break on Monday 5 January.

“It’s always a joy to host This Morning and to see my good friend Phillip, we always have fun together and I can’t wait to see the whole team again.” – Bleakley

Christine will present alongside Phillip every Monday to Thursday until February’s half term week, which will be overseen by Friday regulars Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

Amanda Holden – who has been covering for Holly throughout 2014 – will then rejoin Phillip on the show.

“I am thrilled to be coming back. I have such fun on This Morning and working with Phillip. It is a joy to be on such a well-loved programme, covering such a huge range of topics. I can’t wait to get back once my filming commitments at the beginning of the year are completed.” – Holden

Schofield added: “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 airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV
