Sundays are never going to be the same...
This Morning will now be airing on Sundays, ITV announced today in surprise news.
This Morning on Sunday will begin on January 20th at 10.30 am, meaning that fans can see their favourite show at the weekend.
Eamonn Holmes OBE and Ruth Langsford will front the hour-long instalments of the daytime classic, which will feature all the best moments from the week, plus new and exclusive content.
Phillip Schofield broke the news on today’s show: “We have an exciting announcement to make for Sunday mornings, with a weekend episode! Eamonn and Ruth will be taking you through the highlights of This Morning from that week with some exclusive guests and lots of weekend treats thrown in for good measure.”
Holly Willoughby added, “It’s official, we’ll be going on the telly six days a week! Lazy Sunday mornings couldn’t get any better.”
Eamonn is also thrilled by the news, saying: “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.”
Ruth Langsford added, “So stay in your pyjamas, put your feet up and enjoy a Sunday on This Morning with us!”
Emma Gormley, Managing Director for ITV Studios Daytime, added, “2018 was an amazing year for This Morning, celebrating its 30th birthday, record viewing figures and winning a BAFTA, so this new Sunday commission is a brilliant start to 2019.”
This Morning on Sunday starts from 20th January on ITV from 10.30am. ITV has ordered 10 hour-long shows, with presumably more shows to come on Sunday if they prove a success.
