Could Laura Whitmore step into Holly Willoughby’s This Morning role?


Holly Willoughby announced her decision to leave English breakfast show, This Morning this week after 14 years.

And of course the rumours of who could take over for Holly are rife.

While nothing has been confirmed as of yet, several names have been tipped to step into the hot seat.

Including our very own Laura Whitmore.


The Bray woman has strong ties with ITV, the station where she previously hosted Love Island as well as working on Celebrity Juice.

So it wouldn’t be the first time she followed in Holly Willoughby’s footsteps.

Laura is among the leading contenders to land the top gig at 6/1.

Rylan Clark is the current favourite at 3/1 according to Ladbrokes, with Davina McCall in the mix at 4/1, while Amanda Holden and Rochelle Humes are tied at 5/1.

Maura Higgins’ name is also in the mix. However, she is a bit of an outlier with her odds at 10/1.

Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “Fans have been in a frenzy since news of Holly Willoughby’s ‘This Morning’ departure and following mounting interest, we have opened the betting on who will replace the daytime TV veteran.

“While it’s still early days, the odds suggest Laura Whitmore is very much in the running.”

The full list reads: 3/1 Rylan Clark, 4/1 Davina McCall, 5/1 Amanda Holden, 5/1 Rochelle Humes, 11/2 Alesha Dixon, 6/1 Laura Whitmore, 8/1 Maya Jama, 10/1 Carol Vorderman, 10-1 Maura Higgins, 10/1 Olivia Attwood, 12-1 Amber Gill, 13/1 Nick Grimshaw, 16/1 Josh Denzel.
