'This Morning': 22 Completely Random Celebrities They've Let Host The Show

Remember when our Kerreh filled in with Brian McFadden?

The good ship ‘This Morning’ is expertly steered by Holly Willoughby, Phillip Schofield, Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes, but it always proves interesting when the dynamic of the show is switched up with a guest presenter.

Amanda Holden, Christine Bleakley, Rylan Clark-Neal and Ben Shephard have become regular stand-ins over the last few years, but it’s not always the most likely of candidates producers call on when one of our famous foursome is off sick or on holiday.

In fact, there’s been numerous occasions where the show has been left in the hands of some completely random celebrities over the last 30 years, as this lot prove...

Nigel Havers and Lisa Snowdon

If ever there was a more random TV pairing, we'd like to hear about it.
Mollie King and Mark Wright

Former Saturdays singer Mollie was an addition to the presenting team over the summer of 2018, and was randomly paired up with former 'TOWIE' star Mark for one edition.
Michael Ball and Sara Cox

Michael and Sara's one-episode stint in 2018 gifted birthed the best presenting duo name ever - ladies and gents, we give you Cox and Ball.
Kerry Katona and Brian McFadden
Following tradition of married couples hosting the show, our Kerreh fronted an edition with then-husband Brian in 2001 - six years before *that* infamous interview with Phil and Fern.
Patrick Kielty and Emma Willis
Patrick teamed up with 'Big Brother' host Emma Willis over the summer of 2012. While the pairing was perfectly pleasant, we're still wondering what made producers throw them together.
Twiggy and Coleen Nolan
This part of This Morning's 28-year history is often glossed over, but you might just remember Twiggy and Coleen were picked as Richard and Judy's full-time replacements in 2001. They only lasted a few months in the job before being axed.
Jamie Theakston and Emma Bunton
The former 'Live And Kicking' presenter hadn't been seen on screens for a while when he hosted some shows with Emma Bunton over the summer of 2013. But the pairing proved successful, as the Spice Girl was later hired to co-host his Heart radio breakfast show.
Tim Vincent and Kate Garraway
We've not heard or seen anything from former 'Blue Peter' presenter Tim in yeaaars, but he did guest host the show with Kate Garraway in 2005.
Denise Van Outen and Richard Bacon
Another random pairing, but both Denise and Richard had experience in hosting morning telly, having previously fronted Channel 4's 'The Big Breakfast', albeit it with separate co-hosts. Here they are on 'This Morning' in 2005.
Jeremy Kyle and Kate Thornton
Given his direct, and often rude, approach on his own show, Jeremy seemed a bit of an odd choice to present the warm and friendly 'This Morning' alongside former X Factor host Kate Thornton in 2010.
Paddy McGuinness and Andrea Catherwood
Another 'who the hell stuck these two together?' pairing came in the form of former ITV newsreader Andrea and 'Take Me Out' host Paddy McGuinness, who presented 'This Morning' together for a couple of episodes in 2011.
Matthew Kelly
The 'Stars In Their Eyes' presenter stepped in for Richard and Judy with Sarah Kennedy back in the 1990s.
Amanda Byram and Jake Humphrey
Amanda was best known for hosting the likes of 'Total Wipeout' and 'Something For The Weekend' and was teamed up with former CBBC-turned-sports presenter Jake Humphrey in 2013.
