The first episode of This Morning features Alison Hammond as co-host.

Fans have grown to love seeing Dermot O'Leary, 47, as the Friday edition of ITV Daytime has been hosted by the presenter since January 2021. They also step in for the holidays.

The Bank Holiday Monday show (May 2) will feature a new presenter, but that's not the only change. Craig Doyle announced that he would be taking Dermot's place on The Morning this weekend.

"I am so excited to host This Morning tomorrow, I have arrived 14 hours before work!" He also shared a photo of him outside ITV Studios in London, where he was carrying a suitcase. He said: "Join @alisonhammond55 & I at 10 am @thismorning@itv." Alison shared her post with her co-host, adding a GIF that said "LOL" - also known as laugh out loud – and a crying laughing smile emoji.

Craig (51), is a radio and TV presenter from Ireland. Viewers may recognize him from his appearances on This Morning, and more recently as host of ITV's competition segment.

He has been employed by ITV, the BBC, and most recently BT Sport. Irish viewers know him also as Craig Doyle Live, the host of RTE Two's Craig Doyle live and Tonight with Craig Doyle.

He anchors the BT Sport Premiership coverage and European Champions Cup coverage. Since 2013, he has been a BT Sport rugby presenter. He also hosted the MotoGP coverage between 2014 and 2018. Craig is also a presenter for ITV's Rugby World Cup coverage.

Craig may also be remembered by some as someone who was a fun time traveller. He hosted the children's program Diggit on GMTV between 1998 and 2002 with Fearne cotton and Reggie Yates.

He has also appeared on several BBC shows including The Holiday Programme, Tomorrow's World and the tech show Tomorrow's World. The broadcaster then hired him to work on Six Nations Rugby and the Athens Olympics. He also worked on Wimbledon and Grandstand.
