The new-look Daybreak launches on ITV1 on Monday, September 3.

Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley launched Daybreak in 2010, but the former One Show duo struggled to pick up viewers and lost the ratings battle with BBC Breakfast. The pair were axed from the show last November.

Dan Lobb and Kate Garraway have acted as hosts during the interim period.
