A number of different presenters will host This Morning over the summer, some new to the show and others returning after having presented before.

Dermot O’Leary is one such host. O’Leary is a familiar face to many viewers, having hosted shows like The X Factor, Big Brother, and The One Show. He is also a regular host on This Morning already, and made a brief appearance as himself in BBC drama The Split (which was directed by his wife, Dee Koppang).

Allison Hammond is another presenter who will host This Morning. Hammond is a popular presenter and journalist, and a regular host of This Morning already. She’s also an actress, having appeared in CBBC series The Dumping Ground and Adam Sandler animated movie Hotel Transylvania 3.

Josie Gibson will present This Morning during the summer months also. Gibson is a former Big Brother winner, having appeared in the Big Brother House in 2010, and went on to host Channel 5 series OK! TV.

Irish sports presenter Craig Doyle, former member of The Saturdays Rochelle Humes, Good Morning Britain presenter Andi Peters, television and radio presenter Vernon Kay, and other former member of The Saturdays Mollie King will also present during the summer.

They’re joined by Ruth Langsford and Rylan Clark, popular television personalities and regular presenters of This Morning.

Those onscreen partnerships will include Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle, Rochelle Humes and Andi Peters, Josie Gibson and Vernon Kay, Mollie King and Craig Doyle, and Ruth Langsford and Rylan Clark.

Finally, for the last two weeks before Phil and Holly return – so, from Monday 22 August to Friday 2 September – each edition of This Morning will be hosted by Rochelle Humes and Vernon Kay.
