Michael Strahan has admitted that he was nervous about becoming Live!'s official new co-host.

Strahan was confirmed as the show's new co-host yesterday (September 4) when he joined Kelly Ripa on the set.

However, the former NFL star confessed that he was anxious about joining the series.

"I was more nervous getting out of the limo today [to begin on Live!] than coming out of any tunnel," he told Us Weekly.

"At least there I have a mask to hide behind - here it's just me. I was more nervous today than at my first professional [football] game."

However, Strahan explained that he did not hesitate when he was offered the role, saying: "Kelly asked me, 'Would you consider to honour me by being my co-host?' And I said, 'You had me at consider'."

Ripa's former co-host Regis Philbin has previously backed Strahan for the role, saying: "He's got a great sense of humour [and is] a big strapping guy."
