This Morning presenter Alison Hammond and a new host will step in as Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield enjoy a day off
This Morning’s Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will have two substitutes as they take advantage of Bank Holiday Monday.
Dermot O’Leary usually hosts with Alison Hammond but he was also given the day off tomorrow.
Instead, Alison will host alongside a new presenter while the other presenters spend time with their families.
Presenter Craig Doyle took to his Instagram to share the exciting news that he will be joining the hilarious Alison.
“So excited to host This Morning tomorrow, I arrived 14 hours early for work!” he said.
“Join @alisonhammond55 and me from 10am @thismorning @itv.”
In the photo released on Sunday evening, Craig stood outside the London Television Centre.
He had his suitcase by his side and his backpack as he beamed towards the camera.
Craig, 51, is a television and radio presenter in Ireland and is seen occasionally on This Morning.
Tomorrow he will be hosting on the couch with Alison for the very first time.
He is known in Ireland as the host of the RTÉ One Tonight chat show with Craig Doyle and RTÉ Two’s Craig Doyle Live.
The presenter has also worked for the BBC and ITV and even BT Sport.
Some might recognize him when he hosted the children’s show Diggit on GMTV from 1998 to 2002 with Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates.

It comes after lead host Holly spoke about the struggles of hosting the show and how she felt when she joined.
She recalled how she “wasn’t ready” to host This Morning early in her career after critics doubted her ability to handle the political segments.
The presenter joined the ITV show in 2009 and said her confidence was shaken after an “appalling” interview with then-Prime Minister Gordon Brown shortly after her arrival.
“I was terrible. The worst part was so many people in the industry said I couldn’t do this job. I wanted to prove myself,” she said.
