Christine Bleakley is to guest host 'This Morning' while Holly Willoughby is away.
The 34-year-old star will team up with her 'Dancing on Ice' co-host Phillip Schofield to fill in for the 'Celebrity Juice' beauty for four days when she is away on holiday until next Monday (13.01.14).
She said: "I'm really thrilled to spend a few days doing my best to fill Holly's shoes. I've loved watching 'This Morning' for as long as I can remember."
Christine stepped in for Holly on 'This Morning' in September and prior to the programme Phillip took to Twitter to reveal the brunette stunner was "nervous" about co-presenting the show.
He tweeted: "As @hollywills is on the skive today, I'm presenting with lovely @clbleakley .. Who is very nervous! (sic)"
Christine was axed as 'Daybreak' co-host in 2011 alongside Adrian Chiles just over one year after they joined the revamped breakfast show.
But she recently hit back at the criticism faced by the presenting pair, who established themselves as a hosting duo on BBC One's 'The One Show'.
Speaking about 'Daybreak', she said: "The show was built up as the greatest thing to happen to TV for years. It meant that we were asking to be shot down. The critics went to town on me and Adrian.
"The show was slammed in every way, right down to the colour of the sofa we were sitting on. Our earnings seemed to be a national talking point."
