Schofield will be away from January 13 to 16, as he films the latest series of The Cube.

O'Leary said: "I'm delighted to be guest hosting This Morning for a week. When Holly called me and asked, I couldn't resist, I really miss working with her, and am looking forward to having some fun."

He added: "I'm a huge admirer of Phillip, so to be asked to stand in for the great man is indeed an honour - I can't wait!"

Willoughby and O'Leary previously worked together on The X Factor when she hosted The Xtra Factor.

This Morning editor Adam Vandermark said: "I'm thrilled Dermot will guest host in the New Year and is so passionate about doing it... he and Holly have great chemistry which is no surprise because they are such good friends."

Dermot O'Leary will also host the 2014 National Television Awards on January 22 at London's O2 Arena.
