Kym Marsh is set to co-present a new topical BBC One show titled Morning Live with Gethin Jones.
Launching this autumn, it is "designed to kick-start the day and reflect the mood of the nation", and will broadcast daily at 9:15am.
Morning Live will feature familiar faces from across the BBC Daytime/Early Peak family, including Rav Wilding, Dr Xand van Tulleken, Will Kirk, Anna Haugh and Sabrina Grant – bringing their own unique brand of expertise to the conversation (via BBC).
"I've always enjoyed morning TV, it's a great way to start the day (with a cuppa in hand of course)," said Kym. "I love nothing more than a good catch up, although this will be on a slightly different scale, more of a daily conversation with our lovely viewers.
"I think variety is key so I'm really excited to work with Gethin and our fantastic guest presenters to bring the latest in lifestyle, health and consumer concerns."
Excited to get started, The One Show host Gethin also commented: "A presenting role on a morning show like this is a bit of a dream for me.
"What I'm most excited about is the opportunity to delve in to some of the biggest issues at the heart of our everyday lives right now," he continued.
"My parents have been shielding and my sister works in a hospital, so, as is the case for lots of people, this year has been such a worry. For me, this show couldn't come at a better time.
"I'm looking forward to working alongside Kym to bring viewers across the UK a much needed boost and of course the important information they need."
