Susanna Reid has been confirmed as one of four presenters for ITV's new breakfast show 'Good Morning Britain' following her announcement that she was taking a "break" from the BBC
Susanna Reid will join ITV later this year as presenter of new breakfast show 'Good Morning Britain'.
The 43-year-old presenter - who is best known for her work on 'BBC Breakfast' - recently announced that she would be taking a break from the channel following her split from partner Dominic Cotton, and it's now been confirmed that she is set to join rival ITV's new-look morning show, which will replace 'Daybreak'.
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' runner-up will be joined by Ben Shepard, Charlotte Hawkins and Sam Fletcher between 6am and 8.30am on weekdays to front 'Good Morning Britain'.
Director of daytime at ITV, Helen Warner, said of the lineup: "I'm delighted to welcome all four presenters to the ITV Breakfast family. ITV has a first class roster of breakfast and daytime talent both on and off screen and I'm thrilled to be expanding this.
"Engaging, news driven content is our number one priority and will be at the heart of everything we do on 'Good Morning Britain'. I believe we have a top team in place to deliver this and make this a compelling proposition to wake up to in the morning."
Current 'Daybreak' presenter Lorraine Kelly will now be at the helm of her own show 'Lorraine' between 8.30 and 9.25am on weekdays, while Aled Jones will present a brand new morning show 'Weekend' on Saturdays and Sundays in the same time slot.
Aled said of his new role: "What more can I ask for than a mix of all the things I love! It's a dream come true to present a show I've always wanted to watch and I can't wait to get started."
