This Morning bosses 'in talks to give Josie Gibson more permanent role'

It has been reported that This Morning bosses are in talks to give Josie Gibson a more permanent role after she replaced Holly Willoughby for a few days while she was off sick.

With Holly off sick, former Big Brother champion Josie Gibson stepped in – leaving viewers at home praising her and dubbing her ‘a natural’.

Holly has now recovered and is back at work, but an insider recently told Heat Magazine that Holly was “concerned” to see somebody else take on her job “so easily”.

The source revealed to the magazine: “Holly has been really open with show bosses about wanting to try new things, and while she will always be loyal to This Morning, she’s not sure what the future holds.”

Speaking to the publication, the insider explained that although Holly doesn’t know what the future holds and is willing to try new things, she was still worried when Josie took the reins while she was sick, presenting alongside Phillip Schofield.

Holly was reportedly worried when she saw all of the praise that Josie received when she stood in for her, with fans and celebrities gushing over how down-to-earth the former Big Brother favourite was getting.

It has also been alleged by the same source that there is talk of Josie getting a more permanent role, with people seeing her as the perfect replacement should Holly ever depart the popular morning magazine-style show.

Taking to Instagram, Josie was overjoyed to have presented the show for three days on the trot. She posted a snap of her with Phillip and wrote: “What a surreal week it’s been!!!! Three days of presenting one of biggest daytime TV shows of all time @thismorning.

“I’ve got to give it up for this hero @Schofe you have been my rock this week. Not only have you presented the show but you’ve had to teach me along the way.”

She continued: “Sorry about all the slip ups, you and @hollywilloughby and all of our presenters make it look effortlessly easy. You have made me laugh so much especially in the make up room.

“Thank you for being there for me, thank you for being so gentle, warm and kind and thank you for being so bloody hilarious!! Love you Schofe, what a legend!”

Thousands of fans commented on the post, with one typing: “You’ve been brilliant Josie, an absolute natural. Hope to see you presenting again.”

Another said: “Have enjoyed watching you Josie, your a natural and so down to earth.Hope you return soon.”

A third fan wrote: “You are fab Josie, hopefully we will see you there more often, you and alison hammond would make the dream team.”

Famous faces also left sweet notes below the post, with X Factor and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Jake Quickenden writing: “You was amazing my friend! So much love.

This Morning and Loose Women legend Ruth Langsford said: “Well done, Josie, you were a natural!”

Love Island‘s Laura Anderson penned: “Well done superstar. Hard work pays off but remember likeability is unteachable.”

Holly even praised Josie, saying that she did a “brilliant job” while other famous faces gushed over Josie’s This Morning stint.

Heat Magazine’s insider said that Holly is now ‘thinking twice’ about her position on the show, explaining that Holly isn’t ready to depart the show yet.

The source revealed that Holly seeing someone do her job so effortlessly for a few days has “slightly unsettled her.”

The insider also explained how the producers constantly reassure Holly, but need to make sure they have all bases covered in case she gets a better offer or decides that she’d like to move on.

Speaking to the publication the source said: “So, they’re always on the lookout for potential replacements — and people like Josie and Alison Hammond are real front runners in terms of people who the audience love.”

It will be interesting to see what happens in 2022 – will Josie and Alison be getting a joint presenting stint? We hope so!
