I’m delighted that ITV have asked me to present GMB. I have grown up with ITV’s Breakfast telly.

I’ll try to channel my best Rustie Lee and the charm of the great Nick Owen.

Above all, I’ll try not to miss my alarm!

GMB's Editor, Neil Thompson reckons "He's got all the virtues, the values and the versatility we treasure in a great ITV Breakfast broadcaster. In his own distinctive and authentic way he can bridge current affairs and comedy, never losing sight and sense of the audience that is watching and listening."
