This Morning in major presenting shake-up as Holly and Phil replaced all week

This Morning viewers were surprised to see Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield had been replaced by Josie Gibson and Vernon Kay during Monday’s instalment of the popular daytime show.

The pair were hosting the show for the first time together this week as they welcomed I’m A Celebrity’s Simon Gregson and Bridgerton’s Sabrina Bartlett onto the couch.

After another smashing job on the show, ITV bosses have confirmed that they will be taking over the show in the run up to Christmas along with the help of Rochelle Hulmes, Dermot O’ Leary and Alison Hammond.

It means Holly and Phil will be absent all week, as producers of the hit ITV show took to Instagram on Sunday evening to announce this week’s line up of hosts as Christmas nears ever closer.

In an Instagram post on the official This Morning account they posted a series of pictures of the upcoming hosts as well as a timetable with upcoming guest hosts on the show.

The page added: "Introducing your This Morning hosts for next week! Josie Gibson and Vernon Kay will host on Monday.

"Rochelle Hulmes and Vernon Kay will host Tuesday – Thursday. Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary will do their usual hosting on Friday."

It comes after dynamic duo Phil and Holly announced they were taking a well-earned festive break over Christmas after they hosted their last show of the year together last Friday.

Holly and Phil announced the news whilst they hosted a rare Friday show together as they stepped in for Alison and Dermot before they broke up for the festive period.

And to get into the festive spirit, the blonde bombshell rocked a crimson red minidress which she teamed with some black tights and a pair of black ballet pumps.

Alongside the Christmassy snap, she updated her loyal legion of fans online, writing: "It’s CHRIIIIIISTMAAAAAAS! Final day on @thismorning until Christmas Day … open the fizz!"

This Morning airs on weekdays at 10am on ITV.
