Union J will guest present the Showbiz on the Sofa section on ITV breakfast show 'Daybreak' for one week from August 5-9 while Richard Arnold is on holiday
Union J are to guest host on 'Daybreak'.
The 'Carry You' hitmakers - Josh Cuthbert, JJ Hamblett, Jaymi Hensley and George Shelley - will take on Richard Arnold's Showbiz on the Sofa section on the ITV breakfast show for one week from August 5-9 while he is on holiday, and the boy band are relishing the opportunity to hone their presenting skills.
They said: "While Richard is away sunning himself on holiday, we can't wait to be in the 'Daybreak' studio every day.
"It will be a whole week bringing you the best showbiz news.
"It's going to be very exciting."
The pop group - who shot to fame after finishing fourth in last year's 'X Factor' - will follow in the footsteps of several stars who have filled Richard's boots on the sofa including former 'Dancing on Ice' judge Louie Spence and 'Emmerdale' actress Natalie Anderson, who plays Alicia Metcalfe in the soap.
What's more, Union J's friend and former 'X Factor' star Rylan Clark also took on hosting duties for a week in December.
He said at the time: "I'm a massive fan of the show and it's going to be so much fun sharing all the showbiz news and gossip with the nation each morning.
"I'm looking forward to keeping Richard's seat warm while he's swanning off on holiday, but I won't be asking for any dancing tips just yet!"
