We're pleased to announce that Amanda Holden will present This Morning when Holly Willoughby goes on maternity leave from September.
Amanda will present the first part of Holly’s maternity cover on the award-winning ITV Daytime show with Phillip Schofield from September, Monday - Thursdays, with Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford on Fridays. Christine Bleakley will also present some of the latter part of Holly’s maternity cover.
Amanda says: "I'm over the moon to get the chance to present one of my favourite shows on TV and I'm thrilled to be keeping Holly's seat on the sofa warm when she goes off on maternity leave. I have always been a huge fan of This Morning and love presenting with Phillip so I really can't wait to get started."
ITV Daytime's Managing Executive Producer Emma Gormley adds: “Amanda is a great talent with warmth and charisma in abundance. We are thrilled to have her join the This Morning family.”
