Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden has been presenting the show with Phillip over the Autumn. Following the Christmas break, Christine Bleakley will co-host the show until mid-February.

Christine said: “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 has presented the show alongside Schofield several times and the pair used to present Dancing on Ice together before it was axed earlier this year.

Phillip Schofield, who recently presented on ITV for 24 hours for Text Santa, says that he is missing his regular co-host Holly. “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.
