With the news that Abbey Clancy is being tipped as a potential replacement for Holly Willoughby on This Morning, the competition for the coveted job is heating up. Many other names have been thrown into the mix, including Alison Hammond, Josie Gibson, and Steph McGovern. But who is actually likely to bag the job?
According to Betfred, Abbey Clancy is currently the top choice to replace Holly. They have placed odds at 1/1 (EVS) on her taking on the role. A source recently claimed that Abbey “comes across confidently and has an affable nature which would prove a hit with This Morning viewers.” She has certainly made a name for herself on camera, and her popularity could make her a strong contender.
Alison Hammond is another strong contender for the job. She currently hosts Friday editions of This Morning alongside Dermot O’Leary and has been filling in for Holly recently. Rumors have been swirling that she could take on the full-time position. Betfred gives Alison odds of 7/2 to replace Holly.
Josie Gibson, a regular on This Morning, has also been mentioned as a potential replacement for Holly. She has often hosted the show with Holly and other stars, and many fans have begged for her to take on the role full-time. Betfred has placed odds of 6/1 on Josie landing the job.
Rochelle Humes, another regular on This Morning, is also in the running. She has hosted the show several times and has reportedly expressed her desire to have a more permanent role. She believes she and her husband, Marvin Humes, have what it takes to revive the show and bring it back to its golden days. Betfred gives Rochelle odds of 8/1.
Steph McGovern, a Channel 4 presenter, recently joined the mix following the axing of her show, Steph’s Packed Lunch. Fans of This Morning have been begging for bosses to sign her up for the top job. Betfred gives Steph odds of 8/1.
Other names that have been thrown into the mix include Kate Lawler (12/1), Lisa Snowdon (16/1), Davina McCall (20/1), Amanda Holden (25/1), Ruth Langsford (33/1), and Mel Giedroyc (33/1). Sue Perkins and Judy Finnigan are both at 50/1.
Betfred spokesperson Kayley Cornelius believes that Abbey Clancy is the top prediction for the job, with Alison Hammond as a close second. She stated, “I don’t think there would be much surprise if the star was offered the full-time position.”
This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV1 and ITVX. The decision on who will replace Holly Willoughby is eagerly awaited by fans, and it remains to be seen who will ultimately get the job.
