This Morning: Josie Gibson returns for competition segment but fans want her hosting

She recently completed a hosting stint

This Morning star Josie Gibson returned for the competition segment today following her recent hosting stint.

Josie, 36, filled in for Holly Willoughby on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday after the presenter became ill with a tummy bug.

And viewers absolutely loved Josie as host, with many people wanting more of her.

But today Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary returned to host Friday’s edition while Josie was back to present Dosh On Your Doorstep.

“She was so brilliant this week!”

Josie was brought in last minute to replace Holly on Tuesday.

Phillip Schofield explained that Holly had a “tummy bug” and therefore couldn’t work.

Josie admitted it felt “surreal” being alongside Phil actually hosting the programme.

On Thursday, after her presenting stint, Josie paid tribute to Phil on Instagram.

What did Josie say?

She said: “What a surreal week it’s been!!!! Three days of presenting one of biggest daytime TV shows of all time @thismorning.

“I’ve got to give it up for this hero @Schofe you have been my rock this week.

“Not only have you presented the show but you’ve had to teach me along the way.”

She then apologised for “all the slip ups”, adding: “You have made me laugh so much especially in the make up room.

“Thank you for being there for me, thank you for being so gentle, warm and kind and thank you for being so bloody hilarious!!”

Many of her celebrity friends congraulated her.
