Holly Willoughby branded a ‘legend’ by This Morning co-star Josie Gibson

Josie Gibson swears during roller coaster ride

Josie Gisbon, 38, has praised friend and temporary co-host Holly Willoughby, 42, as she revealed the new presenter of ITV’s This Morning for the rest of this week.

Following Holly’s return from holiday, the Bristol-born personality has been keeping her company and conducting interviews from the This Morning sofa.

However, her short stint has come to an end — and Josie has shared an emotional Instagram post to mark the occasion.

On Tuesday, Gibson posted a behind-the-scenes selfie of Holly and her looking glam on the set of the daytime TV show.

In the caption, the mum-of-one told her 421,000 followers that she has “loved” her time presenting.

She wrote: “Thank you to this legend and her infectious energy!!!

“@hollywilloughby you are such a fabulous broadcaster…loved our last two days together.”

Josie then went on to reveal who would be stepping into her shoes for the remainder of the week.

She continued: “Passing the baton onto @craigadoyle I will be out in the sunshine bringing you an incredible competition from a canal boat. Don’t miss us tomorrow from 10 am on @thismorning.”

In the wake of Phillip Schofield’s high-profile exit, Craig Doyle, 52, will co-host with Holly for the remainder of the week.

In a statement, the broadcaster wrote: “Delighted to join the wonderful Holly on the sofa later this week.

“The show has been a joy to work on with one of the hardest working & talented teams I know. See you Wednesday.”

The revolving presenters come after Schofield, 61, stepped down from presenting duties last month.

Since then, he has cut all ties with ITV as he admitted to having an affair with a younger man who worked on the programme.

In a statement to the Daily Mail, Phillip said that he had a “consensual on-off relationship with a younger male colleague at This Morning” but insisted that the “relationship was unwise, but not illegal”.

He continued to say: “I am resigning from ITV with immediate effect expressing my immense gratitude to them for all the amazing opportunities that they have given me.”

Following the admission, Holly released her own statement via Instagram and wrote that she was “very” hurt by the revelations.

Upon her return to ITV on Monday, she stated live on air that she and the rest of the This Morning family had given their “love and support to someone who was not telling the truth”.

She then went on to say: “I hope that, as we start this new chapter and get back to a place of warmth and magic that this show holds for all of us, we can find strength in each other.”
