This Morning’s Josie Gibson still suffers ‘imposter syndrome’ three years later

This Morning star Josie Gibson has revealed she still has imposter syndrome over her This Morning presenting job.

The former Big Brother star has regularly hosted the show for over three and a half years, filling in for the main presenting team several times since 2019.

Josie, 37, rose to fame after her stint on Big Brother in 2010 and is now set to take on more hosting shifts through the summer and has admitted feeling thankful for the support she receives from co-stars Phillip Schofield, Holly Willoughby and Alison Hammond.

She told PA Media: "I get nervous all the time and it's three-and-a-half years along the line and I still get nervous to this day.

"Now and again, I've got to give myself a little talking to – because I sometimes get imposter syndrome – 'What am I doing here? How did this happen? How did I get myself into this?' Alison always says everyone deserves to be there."

Josie continued that she "wouldn't be there if it wasn't for them", and claimed that her west-country roots have helped her in the job.

She explained: "I'm quite nosey and I'm from a small town, so I think that helps when it comes to speaking with guests."

Josie also revealed her disbelief at her success on the show. She added: "If you had said to me, 'One day, you will be hosting This Morning' – the biggest daytime TV show in the UK, I would have probably burst out laughing.

"Never in a million years did I think I’d be doing something like this. But I can't wait – I love working at This Morning so much, I've got the best job ever."

This Morning airs weekdays at 10 am on ITV and ITV Hub.
