TV presenter Adrian Chiles admits he would be terrified to work on the new 'GMTV' morning show 'Daybreak' without his co-star Christine Bleakley
Adrian Chiles would be frightened to work on 'Daybreak' without Christine Bleakley.
The 43-year-old presenter admits his relationship with Christine - which was cultivated on the BBC's 'The One Show' - is special, and he would be scared to work on the new flagship ITV morning show without her.
He said: "It just feels right. I'd be absolutely frightened to death if I was doing it with somebody else. It's a really difficult thing to get right - that relationship.
"It'd be really difficult to do it with somebody else - that's why I'm glad Christine came over here from the BBC - and that's what it boils down to, that's why we're here and that's why I left the BBC because that relationship was under threat there."
Christine also reveals it was not a difficult decision to leave 'The One Show' and transfer to ITV because she wanted to work with Adrian again.
She told new! magazine: "Actually it wasn't really. It was difficult in that 'The One Show' was my life for two years and I'd worked for the BBC for 14 years. From that point of view, yes, it was a big deal and people from 'The One Show' were my family and friends.
"But, ultimately, Adrian and I worked alongside each other every day, and we worked very, very closely and when he left I just. it just wasn't the same. I missed him terribly. The sparkle had gone for me."
