Flagship ITV daytime show 'This Morning' have announced their summer presenter lineup with James Martin and Anita Rani taking over Friday hosting duties.

James - who has previously hosted the show with both Ruth Langsford and Holly Willoughby - said, “It’s such a privilege to be asked back to do it again, I have a great time there.”

Ahead of hosting her very first show with James this Friday 22nd July, Anita said, “I’m so excited to be joining the fantastic team at This Morning. What a brilliant way to spend Fridays over the summer.”

On their first show together, James and Anita will be speaking to actor Brendan O’Carroll, discussing the latest beauty trends, learning allotment tips, and James himself will show viewers his very own vegetable patch and cook two summer-inspired dishes with seasonal tomatoes. 

James has also recently interviewed Hollywood stars Matt Damon and Alicia Vikander for a This Morning daytime exclusive that will be aired on 27 July.

This Morning’s editor Martin Frizell says, “James and Anita are both brilliant hosts in their own right and certainly have the skills suited for the varied and fast-paced nature of This Morning. Plans this year will certainly keep our viewers entertained across the summer weeks.”
