This Morning Summer is a spin-off from the main show, This Morning, aired on ITV each summer. Since 2010, Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford have hosted the seven-week series, alongside guest presenters on Fridays. The "Summer" in This Morning Summer's name was dropped for the 2014 series.

It is generally a continuation of the same format, effectively making This Morning a year-round broadcast.

Presenters[edit]

Regular presenters, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, take a break from duties during this time and are replaced by Holmes and Langsford between Monday and Thursdays. Holmes and Langsford also present all year-round on Fridays and during school holidays.
