Dermot O’Leary and Ore Oduba will be guest hosts of This Morning for the summer.
The 47-year-old X Factor presenter will host an upcoming show on Friday, along with pregnant fashion correspondent Rochelle Humes, before teaming up with Alison Hammond for a new edition.
Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford take over Monday through Thursday, while the program’s regular presenters, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, have a well-deserved two-month hiatus.

Former Saturday singer Rochelle, 31, will also see a Friday episode featuring Strictly 2016 winner Ore, 34, as well as a separate show with comedian Alison, 45.
New dad Dermot, who recently welcomed his first child Kasper with wife Dee Koppang, 41, previously vouched for Phillip, 58, when he presented the show along with Holly, 39, in January 2014, and Ore did the same in November 2016 and March 2017.
The broadcaster is best known for hosting ITV’s show series X Factor from 2007, while the theater actor gained prominence as a presenter for Newsround from 2008 to 2013.
MailOnline has contacted ITV representatives for further comments.

ITV announced the summer roster on Monday, after at least 10 million people tuned in to see the fan favorite during the first week of lockdown.

Show editor Martin Frizell said, “We’ve been inundated with the positive feedback from viewers during the lockdown on how This Morning has provided a much needed comfort blanket.”
Broadcaster Eamonn, 60, enthusiastic: “It will be a very different summer for all of us, so we hope that we can continue to give this morning a sense of normalcy, and of course a lot of craziness.”
TV veteran Ruth, also 60, added, “Like so many viewers, I’ve finally had my hair done – hooray – and I’m ready for the summer.”

This Morning will also hire a black presenter after ITV bosses unveil a plan to diversify the channel with more black, Asian and ethnic minority stars.
Last month, The Mail on Sunday revealed that the program’s editor is attempting to change the lineup with a black presenter.
It is now alleged that bosses held a meeting earlier this week to work out a “ diversity acceleration plan ” with landmarks to recruit a black presenter for the first time in the magazine show’s 32-year history.
Insiders told Daily star that the strategy describes how ITV “can better reflect contemporary British life on screen and will do so by” increasing the diversity of presenters of ITV’s leading programs.

While plans would extend to Loose Women, GMB, Coronation Street and Emmerdale in the future, This Morning – now with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield – would come first.
Alison, Rochelle and her husband Marvin Humes act as stand-in presenters and guest segments, but the shake-up is thought to be looking for a host for the main show.
This Morning airs on ITV on weekdays from 10 a.m.
