This Morning will now be airing on Sundays too

This Morning fans are in for a right treat this year as it has been announced that the popular daytime TV show will be extended to air six days a week, as opposed to the usual five.

The hit ITV chat show, which is easily one of the most talked about TV programmes attracting millions of viewers every week, usually airs Monday to Friday, from 10.30am til 12.30pm. However, the broadcaster has now announced that the show will be introducing a new weekend slot on Sunday mornings and it’s coming a lot sooner than you may think.

That’s right – our Sunday mornings just got a whole lot better!

The new Sunday show will air on ITV at 10.30 (just like the weekday shows) but will not be hosted by regular presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield. Instead, it will be fronted by long-time stand-ins Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

Unlike the weekday programmes, the weekend specials won be airing a completely ‘new’ live episode. It will actually consist of a compilation of highlights from the previous week, making sure everyone who was working during the regular scheduling of the weekday shows  doesn’t miss out on anything. However, it will also include some new items hosted by Ruth and Eamonn. Clever, right?

In a statement released by ITV, Eamonn said: ‘We’ll be there on Sundays to put the cherry on top of your best This Morning bits of the week.

Not only will anything you’ve missed be featured, Ruth and I will also be adding our own fresh content that you won’t have seen.’

Meanwhile Ruth added: ‘Stay in your pyjamas, put your feet up and enjoy a Sunday on This Morning with us!’

The new Sunday programme will launch on 20 January, airing every Sunday going forward and becoming a direct competitor for Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, which broadcasts from 09:30am – 12:30pm on Sundays.
