Fiona Philips will present a new daytime chat show for ITV.
The former 'GMTV' presenter will host the show called '3 @ Three', alongside presenters Gloria Hunniford, Carol Smilie, Mark Durden-Smith and Andrea McLean.
The show - which will begin in August - is described as a lighter look at news and celebrity chat and will follow a similar format to 'Loose Women'.
It will take on the three big issues of the day and provide viewers with a chance to give their opinions on air.
The live show will be broadcast live from Covent Garden in London between 3pm and 4pm.
It has also been revealed that Fiona Phillips is returning to 'GMTV' almost two years after she left the ITV1 breakfast show
The presenter - who left the show in December 2008 after 15 years - will fill in for Lorraine Kelly from today (19.07.10) when she takes her summer break.
Fiona spoke of her excitement at returning to her former show saying: "I've spent nearly a third of my life so far sitting on the 'GMTV' sofa, so I'm really excited to be going back to see my old mates and the viewers again."
Lorraine Kelly will return at the beginning of September, for the launch of her revamped show 'Lorraine'. It is part of a shake-up at ITV which will see 'GMTV' renamed 'Daybreak' and fronted by former 'The One Show' presenters Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley.
