Phillip Schofield announced on Wednesday that This Morning will now air six days a week.

Adding an extra episode on Sunday, Schofield said: “We have an exciting announcement to make for Sunday mornings, with a weekend episode of This Morning !”

But he explained that it won’t be him and Holly Willoughby presenting, but rather ITV stalwarts and married presenting couple Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

“Eamonn and Ruth will be taking you through the highlights of This Morning from that week with some exclusive guests and lots of weekend treats thrown in for good measure,” he said.

“It’s official, we’ll be going on the telly six days a week! Lazy Sunday mornings couldn’t get any better,” added Willoughby.

The husband and wife duo said they are just as excited about their new presenting gig.

“We’ll be there on Sundays to put the cherry on top of your best This Morning bits of the week. Not only will anything you’ve missed be featured, Ruth and I will also be adding our own fresh content that you won’t have seen,” Holmes said.

“So stay in your pyjamas, put your feet up and enjoy a Sunday on This Morning with us!” encouraged Langsford.

This Morning editor Martin Frizell said: “This Morning on Sunday will be an unmissable package of the week’s most talked about moments on and off TV.

“It will be the best of This Morning rolled into one perfectly-formed hour and will continue its warm, inclusive, intelligent and fun tone.”

The new show will go head to head with Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch hosted by Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer’s.
