ITV This Morning fans share wish as Vernon Kay speaks out on hosting stint

This Morning fans were left sharing a very similar wish as Vernon Kay spoke out on his hosting stint. The Bolton-born TV star made the famous sofa his home last week as he shared being at the helm of the show alongside Josie Gibson.

It’s not the first time the pair have hosted the popular ITV daytime show together after stepping into the main hosting role briefly before Christmas.

But their big comeback went down well with viewers as they swapped places with Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary during the second week of the Easter holidays as the usual Friday hosts took over for the first week while Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield enjoyed their annual break.

Fans previously claimed that Phillip’s job was ‘under threat’ after Vernon made his debut at the end of last year and it appeared that the former Family Fortunes host enjoyed his second stint in the role.

Taking to Instagram with a picture of himself in This Morning’s studio at the Television Centre in London, Vernon told his thousands of followers: “Well! What an amazing week on @thismorning Thanks to @josiegibson85 for being, you! A joy to be hosting with a natural host! And all the team behind the show!

He then gushed over the programme, adding: “It’s obvious why @thismorning wins all the day time awards! Hard work pays off!! Loved the opportunity.”

And the comments soon came flooding in.

“You both are fantastic and I personally wish you were the hosts more often,” @ nursiewen said

@helen.white58 commented: “Wish you were on it every week, much better than Alison and Dermot.”

“Best presenting pair on that show !! Wish you were the permanent ones,” @ alisonhopps echoed.

“Aww wish you were both regulars!!!!! @josiegibson85 xx,” @mccaffer29 added.

Josie also enjoyed her days back as the show’s main host after filing in on numerous occasions throughout the first few months of the year.

Posting a video to her Instagram page, which featured clips of her kissing her son goodbye before heading off the studio and being sat in hair and makeup, the 36-year-old said: “What a lovely 4 days on @thismorning!! I had such a scream and ive met some incredible people. I have learnt so much from our lovely guests.

“Thank you to @vernonkay for making me cry with laughter, your energy is magic. A big thank you to all the crew and production and to @bangingblowdry and @cfalbs for some serious Hollywood glamour!!”
