Sam Quek, Kimberley Walsh and Sara Cox will join Kym Marsh as permanent members of BBC One Daytime’s Morning Live presenting line up.
The show prepares to broadcast from its new home in the heart of Manchester City Centre at ABC Buildings from Monday 21 February (9.15am, BBC One).
The new line-up will present the show daily, in alternating pairings. Kym Marsh will continue to share co-hosting duties with Gethin Jones, while Rav Wilding will also remain a regular face welcoming a variety of guests onto the Morning Live sofa, bringing lively, entertaining and topical discussions to viewers five days a week.
From 21 February, BBC One will become the only major TV channel to broadcast four hours of live TV every week day morning from the North West, with Morning Live following BBC Breakfast.
Carla-Maria Lawson, BBC’s Head of Daytime & Early Peak says: “Telling stories that authentically reflect the concerns and interests of viewers from across the whole of the UK has played a huge part in the incredible success of Morning Live and the move to our new home in Manchester will give us scope to give voice to an even wider range of communities.”
The wider family Morning Live of experts, including Dr Xand van Tulleken, Dr Punam Krishan, Jacqui Joseph, Dr Rupy Aujla, Dom Littlewood, Anna Haugh, Will Kirk, Wayne Perrey, Janette Manrara, Mark Lane and James Greenwood will also continue to bring their valued insight to BBC One mornings.
