O'Leary to guest host This Morning

Dermot O'Leary is set to enjoy a stint co-hosting This Morning.

The X Factor host will fill in for Phillip Schofield, when he is off for one week in January to film a new series of The Cube.

He will make his debut on the ITV morning show with co-presenter Holly Willoughby.

Dermot said: "I'm delighted to be guest hosting This Morning for a week. When Holly called me and asked, I couldn't resist, I really miss working with her, and am looking forward to having some fun."

He added: "I'm a huge admirer of Phillip, so to be asked to stand in for the great man is indeed an honour - I can't wait!"

Dermot and Holly previously worked together when Holly hosted The Xtra Factor.

This Morning's editor Adam Vandermark said: "I'm thrilled Dermot will guest host in the New Year and is so passionate about doing it... he and Holly have great chemistry which is no surprise because they are such good friends."
