And with Amanda.

Former Dancing On Ice presenter Christine will be first to co-host with Phillip when the morning show returns to ITV on Monday, 5 January.

Christine said: "It's always a joy to host This Morning and to see my good friend Phillip. We always have fun together and I can't wait to see the whole team again!"

Phillip and Christine will host together until February half term break, when Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford take over.

Holly is currently on maternity leave following the birth of her third child.

Then, following half term, it will be Amanda Holden and Phillip on the famous sofa until Holly returns from maternity leave.

Amanda, who is hosting the current series of the show with Phillip, said she was "thrilled" to be returning.

"I have such fun on This Morning and working with Phillip. It's a joy to be on such a well-loved programme, covering such a huge range of topics."

Phillip, meanwhile, said that while he misses Holly "very much" he is honoured to be working alongside Christine and Amanda.
