Marvin and Rochelle Humes are to guest host 'This Morning'.
The couple have confirmed they will be stepping in to temporarily replace presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Lansgford - who are fronting the ITV daytime show throughout the summer in place of Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield - on August 23.
Marvin said: "We are so excited be a part of the 'This Morning' team! We have grown up watching the show over the years."
Rochelle added: "It's a dream come true that we're now going to be hosting 'This Morning', we can't wait for our first show on August 23."
The confirmation comes days after it was revealed the pair - who have two-month-old daughter Alaia-Mai - are to front their own chat show because TV bosses believe they could as successful as husband-and-wife duo Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan, who hosted 'This Morning' from 1988 to 2001.
A source previously said: "The TV world has been missing a husband and wife presenting duo since Richard and Judy left the scene four years ago.
"Marvin and Rochelle are seen as the perfect pairing. There's a hope they will be popular with viewers because of their obvious chemistry and ability to take the mickey out of each other.
"They're a very good looking couple and have both been very successful. But in the end they are completely down to earth and focused on family life."
