Rylan Clark-Neal and Geri Horner will present 'This Morning' on Bank Holiday Monday next month
Rylan Clark-Neal will co-host 'This Morning' with Geri Horner next month.
The 28-year-old presenter has announced that he will be teaming up with the former Spice Girls singer to host the breakfast show - in place of Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford - on August 28 following weeks of "secret meetings" with bosses at ITV.
Alongside a photograph of them doing a screen test, Rylan wrote: "So I'm very excited to say after secret meetings and hiding her in my pocket I'm hosting @thismorning with @GeriHalliwell Mon 28 Aug! Xxx can't wait x (sic)."
Rylan's confirmation comes just hours after Geri - who was known as Ginger Spice when she was in the group - teased that she was presenting from the famous sofa.
She said: "We're ready to spice up your life this August Bank Holiday with @GeriHalliwell guest presenting on our famous sofa! Stay calm @Rylan! (sic)"
The 44-year-old singer is no doubt hoping the stint will help launch her presenting career as she's reportedly keen to carve out a name for herself as a host.
A source said recently: "Geri wants to reinvent herself as a telly host and this was an offer she couldn't turn down. She is keen to take her TV career further, loves 'This Morning' and has appeared on it several times. It's going to be the beginning of a glittering TV career. It's a massive coup for 'This Morning' to sign Geri. She is very popular and has a massive following, especially with stay-at-home mums."
In the meantime, viewers will get to see Rylan almost every day as not only will he be presenting the show every Friday throughout the summer but he'll also be hosting 'Big Brother's Bit on the Side' when 'Celebrity Big Brother' returns to screens on August 1.
