Following the exit of Holly Willoughby from the ITV show, the daytime show is set to welcome the Duchess of York as its latest guest presenter for the first time, via Daily Mail.

“I have appeared on This Morning before, but this time I am coming back in a very different role,” the ex-wife of Prince Andrew said. “I love live TV and am an enormous fan of the show, and the whole team is always lovely to deal with.”

She continued, “I’m looking forward to being there for the whole morning, and thrilled to be guest editing the show which will mean getting to explore some topics that I’m passionate about.”
