This Morning hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby return from their summer break on Monday 2nd September for a brand new and extra special series of the daytime show with celebrations planned as ITV’s flagship daytime show celebrates its 25th Anniversary on Thursday 3rd October.
With this being an extra special series of This Morning there have been an even better range of new features fronted by some top names that I’m sure our viewers will enjoy watching. It’s an exciting time and I know that our hosts cannot wait to get started. – This Morning’s Editor, Adam Vandermark
With a new look studio and Hub area, September will see the start of new features and talent including fashion guru Gok Wan who will head up a five week series called Behind the Seams where he will speak with stylists from films such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Pretty Woman and The Devil Wears Prada about all clothing and styles used.
Harry Judd hosts a new male model competition The Complete Package alongside judges Abbey Clancy, Cesar Perin the head scout at Unsigned Management and Regine Weimar the general manager of underwear brand HOM who are in search of the next David Gandy following This Morning’s discovery of him twelve years ago.

October kicks off with celebrations for This Morning’s Silver Anniversary, which launched in 1988 with Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan in Liverpool. The show moved to London in 1996 and Richard and Judy departed in 2001.
There will also be a special week called Let’s Hear It For The Boys where Hollywood legend Samuel L Jackson will present three mini films talking about male cancers and interviewing other celebrities – including Michael Douglas – that have been affected.

Also throughout the series chef Phil Vickery will explain all during his food master classes and take viewers on a tour of his recent travels to Asia in new strand Hong Kong Foodie. Stephen Mulhern will offer a new entertainment showbiz update called Mulhern It Through The Grapevine, and one lucky viewer a month until Christmas will also have the chance for The Hub team to host live from their home in Hub From Your Home!
Toasting This Morning’s 25th Anniversary this autumn will be a highlight for all involved with the show – both on and off screen – and we look forward to announcing more details on our plans very soon. – This Morning’s Executive Producer, Miles Jarvis
