Lorraine Kelly and Aled Jones will be the new presenters of ITV1’s Daybreak, produced by ITV Studios.
Lorraine, who already presents her successful weekday morning show on the channel, will be joined by fellow broadcaster and presenter Aled Jones on the breakfast sofa as Daybreak’s main presenters.
The pair will take up their new roles later this year.
Lorraine Kelly said: “I’m really looking forward to this challenge and to working with Aled who is a warm, funny and a thoroughly decent bloke and is already a good friend.”
Aled Jones said: “I am so thrilled to be joining ITV for their breakfast show. I am thoroughly looking forward to sharing the sofa every morning with such a consummate professional as Lorraine Kelly. We’ve known each other for a very long time and have always had a lot of fun together. We hope that the viewers enjoy being part of our breakfast family.
Controller of Daytime and Lifestyle for ITV Studios, Fiona Keenaghan said: “I’m incredibly excited to be taking ITV’s breakfast show forward with Lorraine and Aled at the helm. They are two of the countries most loved and talented presenters and having seen them together, I know viewers are in for a real treat.
Commissioner for ITV Factual and Daytime, Katy Thorogood said: “Lorraine and Aled are fantastic broadcasters and I’m confident that together they’ll be a formidable partnership.”
