Lorraine Kelly to host 'This Morning'

By
Lorraine Kelly, yesterday signed a £150,000 contract with ITV's This Morning to front the show twice a week, The Sun reports today.

Kelly's move to the show came after the newspaper revealed how regular presenter, Fern Britton, asked producers for more time off to spend with her family.

As well as assuming her new role in daytime TV alongside Philip Schofield, Kelly will also continue to host her daily slot on GMTV, LK Today.

Kelly said: "I’m so excited. This Morning is such great fun. And Philip is a joy to work with, he cracks me up. He’s such a lovely bloke, there’s no nonsense, no ego with him. I have really missed having someone to sit with and bounce things off."

Viewers should expect to see Kelly hosting the propgramme on a Monday and a Friday, when This Morning has returned from its summer break.
