Kate Garraway has confirmed she will be a presenter on 'Good Morning Britain' when ITV axes 'Daybreak' and launches its new breakfast show

Kate Garraway will be part of 'Good Morning Britain'.

The 'Daybreak' presenter has confirmed she will migrate to the new ITV breakfast show, which will be fronted by a slew of newcomers including 'BBC Breakfast' star Susanna Reid.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I'm still staying with 'Daybreak', and then the new show."

Kate, 46, is set to appear on 'Good Morning Britain' with Susanna 43, and Sky News presenter Charlotte Hawkins, 38. The trio will be joined by former 'GMTV' host Ben Shephard and Sky Sports News' Sean Fletcher.

The breakfast TV veteran feels she is still valuable to morning programming and thinks there are still good TV roles for mature broadcasters.

She explained: "I think I've probably got more in me. I've been in breakfast TV for 16 years ... BBC, then Sky, and then GMTV, and then Daybreak, and now the new show that's to come."

But Kate is also enjoying variety in her career, working across TV and radio.

She added: "Weirdly, I think now I've got a more varied broadcasting life than ever before, because I've got radio, and BBC and ITV, and the Travel Channel.

"I've just started a radio show on Smooth Radio, which is just about to re-launch, and I've started doing the National Lottery, extraordinarily, on BBC One on Saturday night. So that's a novelty for me, to be on Saturday night TV again."

Kate Garraway interviews Michael Palin in 'Michael Palin's New Tales Around the World in 80 Days', Sunday 16 March at 8.30pm on Travel Channel.

Dreadful woman. Condescending, patronising and as insincere as it is possible to be. Drools over celebrities leaving even the celebs themselves shifting uncomfortably in their chairs. One of the main pillars of consistent failure at ITV's attempts at breakfast television. The adverts are more interesting. It had half a chance, until this. Sky News for me.

Have to agree with most of the comments. Time and again they let excellent presenters go but keep the rubbish... Kate!! Have they ever considered it is not presenters such as Aled or Lorraine that are in any way to blame it's the format of the whole programme. Why did they not keep the good ones for the new programme and get rid of the bad. Looking at the replacements I do not believe they will make any difference!
