This Morning fans demand Josie takes over from Alison and Dermot as she returns to show

Josie has become a favourite with viewers at home

This Morning viewers have called for Josie Gibson to take over from Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary as a main host.

The popular star returned to the ITV programme earlier today (January 5) to demonstrate her handy home hacks.

But it appears that fans are missing Josie as a main presenter following her successful stint before Christmas.

One of the hacks included using a pillowcase to help store bedding.

Meanwhile, Josie used cardboard from a toilet paper holder to organise tangled leads and chargers.

She also opened the segment by giving an insight into her Christmas Day with Alison.

The pair recently spent the festive day together, with Josie revealing: “I’m not just saying this because Alison is in front of me, but it was the best Christmas dinner I’ve ever had.

“You keep saying your turkey was dry, but it wasn’t!”

How did viewers respond to Josie’s return?

Following the segment, viewers rushed to social media to share their thoughts.

Many loved seeing Josie back on screen and called for the star to become main presenter.

Taking to Twitter, one said: “#ThisMorning Can’t we have Josie presenting again or Ruth? Can’t be doing with Alison. So unprofessional and constantly interrupts.”

Josie should present in future

Another added: “Bring back Mr Vernon Kay & Josie #ThisMorning! Dermot & Alison are just rubbish.”

A third wrote: “These two are woefully poor presenters. Why is Josie not doing it? #ThisMorning.”

A fourth shared: “Dermot looks like a child lost while Alison uses her fake laugh far too much. Josie should present in future #ThisMorning.”

Another praised the star, saying: “Josie was a far superior presenter to Alison and Rochelle [Humes].

“Showed proper empathy and genuine interest in guests.”

Meanwhile, it comes after Josie recently hosted the show alongside Vernon Kay.
