Vernon Kay has been announced as a brand new This Morning presenter, as the summer period comes to a close.

The Family Fortunes host and TV presenting extraordinaire will become a guest presenter for the popular ITV magazine programme.

The past seven weeks have seen Eamonn Holmes OBE and Ruth Langsford present the show each day for the entirety of the summer.

After seven weeks of Eamonn and Ruth, ITV’s flagship daytime show will be introducing a new guest host to the This Morning family – TV legend Vernon Kay.

Vernon, who will be joining the team later this month, has said: "This Morning is the daytime go to show, so to be asked to guest host on a show I’ve watched since its inception is a huge tick for me.

"I’m really looking forward to working with Rochelle and sitting on that famous sofa."

It has also been announced that regular guest host Rochelle Humes will return to host the show from August Bank Holiday Monday (August 30), and will be presenting throughout the first week of September.

Rochelle will be co-hosting with the hilarious Alison Hammond again for a ‘girl power’ Monday before welcoming new guest host Vernon Kay who will front the show with Rochelle for the first time on Tuesday.
