This Morning with Ben Shephard

Ben Shephard has announced he is leaving Good Morning Britain.

The announcement comes after ITV confirmed that he and Cat Deeley are the new host of ITV’s This Morning programme.

Speaking on joining This Morning from next month, Ben Said: “This really feels like a very special moment for Cat and I to be part of the next chapter of This Morning.

“It’s an honour to be trusted with the reins, join Alison and Dermot and all the team that work on and off screen and do such a great job.

“For the last ten years I’ve been waking up with our ITV daytime audience on GMB and I now look forward to spending time with Cat, welcoming the viewers home after the school run or from their early morning routines, with a cup of tea and a mix of everything that makes This Morning so loved.”

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV1 & ITVX
