Speaking to The Sun, John said: "On Friday I hit it off with Emily [Atack] who I know like the back of my hand.

"I have only watched Rochelle on TV in a couple of things she's done, so this is a new team-up for us. I won't get to meet up with her until the day we go on air.

"I can't wait because she's experienced and knows what she's doing. It'll be interesting to put us together and see the dynamic. The audience will be watching us getting to know each other during the course of Monday."

However, as the pair went live on the show, viewers were quick to share their thoughts on the duo.

While many loved John and Rochelle hosting the show, others weren't so keen.

Lovely to see John again and Rochelle you are fab too, so perfect morning for me.

One person said: "John barrowman is awful presenting #thismorning he’s too much and can’t be serious."

A third added: "Barrowman and Rochelle on #thismorning, thankfully I’m going out at half ten."

Meanwhile, others loved the pair.
