We're excited to announce that original This Morning hosts Richard and Judy will return to present the show next month - the first time in 18 years that they’ll be back together presenting on our famous sofa!
Richard and Judy launched This Morning 31 years ago, hosting for 13 years before they handed over the presenting baton in 2001.
The couple’s time on the show was legendary, including interviews with then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, avid celebrity fan George Michael and a very young Phillip Schofield... whom Richard described as “a sex symbol”!
Richard and Judy covered the sad death of Diana, Princess of Wales, introduced the first-ever live testicular exam on air, as well as the first live gay blessing and presented whilst there was a naked streaker on the famous floating weather map.
Now they'll be back to where it all began on Friday 25 October.
Richard and Judy say: “This Morning holds a very special place in our hearts, so we couldn’t be more delighted to take the helm once again.”
This Morning editor Martin Frizell says: “The This Morning family, both in the studio and at home, have been wanting to see Richard and Judy guest present the show for a while now. The time finally felt right and we can’t wait to have these broadcasting legends back on the sofa.”
Watch Richard and Judy host This Morning on Friday 25th October from 10.30am on ITV
