Matt Barbet and Ranvir Singh will join Lorraine Kelly on 'Daybreak'.
Matt, who currently presents Channel 5 news, and Ranvir will present the first hour of the new look programme between 6am and 7am followed by 'Daybreak's new main presenters Lorraine and Aled Jones.
The pair will take up their new roles at ITV1 later this year.
Matt wrote on twitter: "Excited to say I'll be joining the new team at Daybreak to present 6-7am with Ranvir Singh...
"...sad to leave all my friends at 5News but after almost five years, a fresh challenge is due."
He also said in a statement: "I'm hugely excited to be joining the team at ITV. During my career to date I've been privileged to cover some massive stories, from the Afghan war to the Royal Wedding, and I'm looking forward to bringing that experience to my new role on 'Daybreak'."
Ranvir added: "I'm very excited about joining Lorraine, Aled and Matt. We'll be buzzing with all the morning news and having a laugh along the way I hope. I can't wait to get started!"
