This Morning fans make request as Josie Gibson returns to ITV show

This Morning fans all made the same comment that Josie Gibson featured alongside Holly Willoughby on the daytime talk show.

Normal host Phillip Schofield is currently in self-isolation due to testing positive for coronavirus.

He has been ruled out from presenting This Morning for at least five days and will need two negative lateral flow tests to be able to return to Dancing On Ice on Sunday.

The week saw some shuffling of presenters as Holly was also absent from screens for most of that week due to other filming commitments and various faces stepped up to fill the roles including Alison Hammond, Rochelle Humes and Vernon Kay.

But today fan favorite Josie Gibson has taken the helm once again, having previously covered for Holly when she was ill in December.

At the time, fans were thrilled with Josie’s reception and this time was no different as viewers made the same request – that she be a regular presenter.

Amanda said: “Mandatory appreciation tweet from #josie, glad to see @Josiestweet finally back on #ThisMorning – should have been here two weeks!!”

Rhian said: “We could have had Josie for the last 3 weeks, I love her, she’s so natural #ThisMorning.”

Gary said: ‘When producers finally listen to viewers and let Josie present #ThisMorning’

Dave said: “Petition to replace Schofe with Josie permanently #ThisMorning.”

The 36-year-old has been part of the This Morning family since 2019 as the presenter of the pageant, and in December a source exclusively told OK! : “ITV have invested a lot of time in the development of Josie, they see her as a true star of the future.

“Like Alison Hammond before her, they believe she has the personality and talent to take on a bigger role on the show.

“She really impressed when she replaced Holly at the last minute recently and the positive reaction from the public gave them food for thought.”

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV and ITV Hub
