Holly and Phillip face calls to be replaced on This Morning

Josie & Craig address Holly, Phil, Alison & Dermot’s absence

This Morning viewers were thrilled to see a switch-up of presenters on Monday, as Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle stepped into front the ITV programme. As they weclcomed viewers to the show, Josie and Craig addressed Holly Willoughby and Phillip’s Schofield’s absence. They also discussed why Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary, who filled in for Holly and Phil last week, were not there either.

Holly and Phillip always take a break from presenting duties during the school holidays.

As she opened the show, Josie began: “Welcome to your Bank Holiday This Morning, we hope you’re having a lovely Easter.

“I know I am because I am joined by Doyle-a-roo, it’s been a long time.”

“It has,” Craig agreed as Josie asked: “Did you miss me?”

He replied: “I have very badly, they have let us play together again.

“We’ve got a like a free gaff, do you know what a gaff is?

“A free house because the adults are away, right?

“Phil and Holly are away, our favourite aunt and uncle, Alison and Dermot, they’re away.”

“We can invite over who we want,” he added. “We have the run of the place.

“So because of that, I’ve brought you a performing duck.”

Viewers were delighted at the presenting line-up, and many have called for Josie and Craig to replace Holly and Phil as presenters.

Some viewers have suggested the pair would make great “permanent” hosts.
