I have always been a huge fan of This Morning and love presenting with Phillip so I really can't wait to get started."

Managing Executive Producer, ITV Daytime, Emma Gormley said: “Amanda is a great talent with warmth and charisma in abundance. We are thrilled to have her join the This Morning family.”
