Following Holly Willoughby’s shock resignation from This Morning this month there has been a heated debate as to who should replace her on the famous sofa.
There have been several names thrown into the ring for the coveted job, with Abbey Clancy the latest contender for the title.
The WAG, 37, who is married to Peter Crouch, is said to ‘be great on camera’ which could prove ‘a hit’ with viewers of the day time television programme.
Abbey has odds at 12/1 and has brushed up her presenting skills hosting Britain’s Next Top Model and most recently Abbey Clancy’s Celebrity Homes.
The current frontrunner is Storm Huntley, 36, who is the favourite with odds of 6/4 and started her career in the same vein as former children’s TV presenter Holly, having worked on CBeebies and BAFTA nominated show Down On The Farm since 2015.

More recently she has appeared on Channel 5 debate show The Wright Stuff and Jeremy Vine, where she serves as co-host.
Also in the running is Alison Hammond with 5/2 odds and is no stranger to the This Morning sofa, having worked on the show since 2003 as a showbiz correspondent.
The Birmingham-born TV personality, 48, was promoted to permanent Friday host with Demort O’Leary in 2021 and following Phillip Schofield’s dramatic departure this year she has rotated her post across the week.
Kate Garraway is another name that’s been thrown into the mix with 10/1 odds, with The Mail on Sunday revealing that This Morning bosses are in discussions to make Kate and her Good Morning Britain co-host Ben Shephard the new presenting duo on the troubled programme.
ITV sources say they would be a ‘perfect’ combination to replace Holly and Phillip and that chiefs believe their close friendship and chemistry would appeal to viewers.
Other names who have been floated for the role are Rochelle Humes with 5/1 odds, Davina McCall at 8/1 and Josie Gibson at 7/2.
