Posted June 2, 2023 by: Admin #News

Josie Gibson, the beloved TV personality, recently received heartwarming news and shared a delightful moment with her adorable four-year-old son, Reggie. It was announced that Josie will be joining Holly Willoughby as the new co-host of the popular ITV show, This Morning. The announcement was made by the show’s hosts, Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary, at the end of today’s episode.


In a video posted just an hour after the news broke, Josie was seen enjoying a horse and carriage ride with little Reggie. Sporting stylish 70s-style sunglasses, she looked radiant in an olive green dress paired with a denim jacket. With a beaming smile, Josie cuddled her giggling son, creating a heartwarming moment. The video was accompanied by the nostalgic tune of Terry Bush’s “Maybe Tomorrow,” the theme song from the beloved TV show, The Littlest Hobo.

Josie, who first rose to fame after winning Big Brother in 2010, has been a familiar face on This Morning since 2019. While she occasionally filled in for the main presenters in the past, her new role marks a significant milestone in her career. Viewers have long admired Josie’s sunny disposition and charming Bristolian accent, and many had been calling for her promotion for some time.


What makes Josie’s achievement even more remarkable is her close friendship with fellow presenter Alison Hammond. The two have become inseparable, even celebrating Christmases together. In fact, it was Alison who played a pivotal role in boosting Josie’s confidence on the show. Josie shared in an interview, “Even before I presented the main show on This Morning, Alison encouraged me to practice by putting me on open talkback. Initially hesitant, I owe my progress to her unwavering support and belief in me.”


Josie’s new co-host, Holly Willoughby, is currently enjoying a well-deserved vacation in Portugal. Following the recent scandal involving Phillip Schofield, her former close friend and co-host, Holly has chosen to remain silent about the situation. On May 27, she briefly broke her silence on Instagram, expressing her hurt over Phillip’s lack of honesty regarding his affair with a younger male ITV colleague. Despite feeling betrayed, Holly remains focused on her own journey and continues to captivate audiences with her grace and professionalism.

As for Phillip, he has made the decision to part ways with ITV, having been dropped by his agent. Admitting that his 40-year TV career has come to an end, he has pledged his full cooperation with an external review conducted by ITV to investigate the circumstances surrounding his affair, which occurred when he was in his 50s and the other party was in his 20s.


While these recent events have undoubtedly caused a stir in the industry, Josie’s well-deserved promotion brings a breath of fresh air and excitement to This Morning. Her infectious positivity and genuine connection with viewers make her a perfect fit for the show. As Josie embarks on this new chapter, fans eagerly await the delightful moments she will undoubtedly bring to their screens.
