'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 WilloughbyPhillip SchofieldRuth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes, but it always proves interesting when the dynamic of the show is switched up with a guest presenter. 

Amanda HoldenChristine 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...

  • 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

    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

    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

    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.
  • 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. 
  • Myleene Klass

    It may seem odd to see Leenie fronting a flagship show, but her 2010 guest stint on 'This Morning' came after she'd hosted 'The One Show' and 'Popstar To Operastar'. 
  • Jeremy Kyle

    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' in 2010.
  • 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. 
  • Nigel Havers and Lisa Snowdon

    If ever there was a more random TV pairing, we'd like to hear about it. 
  • Amanda Byram

    Despite only having a few small presenting gigs on the likes of 'Total Wipeout' and 'Something For The Weekend', that didn't stop producers from handing Amanda a guest spot on 'This Morning' alongside Jake Humphrey in 2013.
  • Marvin and Rochelle Humes

    Lovely couple, but they weren't exactly the most thrilling of presenters.
  • Mollie King and Mark Wright

    Rochelle's former Saturdays bandmate 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.
