Over the weeks, a host of famous faces – including This Morning regulars Josie Gibson, Rochelle Humes and Alison Hammond – have all stepped up to the mark, and on Monday (13 November) it was the turn of Cat Deeley to have a go.
“Absolutely loving Cat and Rylan on This Morning,” one viewer wrote on X/Twitter. “It’s been years since I’ve enjoyed watching This Morning. Finally, it’s back to its best with two amazing hosts!”
Meanwhile, another agreed: “Who else thinks Rylan and [Cat] should be permanent presenters on [This Morning]?”
Of course, Cat’s This Morning debut wouldn’t have been complete without a game of Wonky Donkey.
Prior to their appearance on This Morning, Rylan practically had the game written into their contract, joking that he “wasn’t doing it” if they didn’t play Wonky Donkey on the show.
Similarly, fans went wild for Wonky Donkey, as one viewer said: “Cat Deeley is brilliant and I’m glad to see Wonkey Donkey.”
Another added: “I’m surprised how good This Morning is today actually I think cat and Rylan are a good fit it doesn’t seem awkward at all and I’m loving wonky donkey.”
After impressing on her first day, Cat will be back on the This Morning sofa on Tuesday and Wednesday.
This Morning airs every weekday from 10am on ITV1.
