Their co-presenting gig comes after they previously worked together on an impressive interview with Christopher Cramp, the first person to have a Civil Partnership, for the show in 2015, which they conducted shortly after their wedding.

It’s thought that the couple’s debut at the helm of This Morning will be on Friday 8 July, while Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford are on holiday.

A source close to the show told The Mirror: “Rylan is hugely popular with the This Morning audience and working with Dan again will provide key chemistry a show like this requires with its hosts.”

Talking about working with Dan previously, Rylan said: “It was weird. We felt like Ruth and Eamonn. It was really strange.

“Obviously, me and Dan do a lot of work together away from TV on the development side, so we are used to doing stuff like that. But to do stuff on camera together was a little bit strange.

“But I really enjoyed doing it. It was really nice and it felt easy because it was ­something we both wanted to talk about".

Huge congratulations and good luck with joint hosting This Morning, Rylan and Dan!
