Susanna Reid is to lead ITV’s new breakfast show Good Morning Britain.
The former BBC presenter will join Ben Shephard, Charlotte Hawkins and Sean Fletch to present Good Morning Britain which will air from 6am to 8.30am Monday to Friday.
Lorraine Kelly will helm her own show Lorraine from 8.30am to 9.25am five days a week. Daybreak host Aled Jones will now present a new weekend morning show called Weekend between 8.30am and 9.25am.
ITV Director of Daytime, Helen Warner, said: “I’m delighted to welcome all four presenters to the ITV Breakfast family. ITV has a first class roster of breakfast and daytime talent both on and off screen and I’m thrilled to be expanding this. Our overriding aim is to continue to improve our breakfast programming for our viewers and we have been working for some time behind the scenes developing the next chapter of our offering.”
“Engaging, news driven content is our number one priority and will be at the heart of everything we do on Good Morning Britain. I believe we have a top team in place to deliver this and make this a compelling proposition to wake up to in the morning.”
It has been rumoured since Susanna Reid competed in Strictly Come Dancing that she was in talks to leave the BBC and join rival ITV.
Good Morning Britain and Weekend are due to begin later this year.
