Holly Willoughby will return to the This Morning sofa in September with a rotating cast of co-hosts including Alison Hammond, Dermo O'Leary, Craig Doyle and Josie Gibson.

It follows the departure of Phillip Schofield in May after he admitted he lied about an affair with a younger male This Morning colleague. Schofield resigned from all his ITV projects, including Dancing On Ice, as a consequence.

A source told the MailOnline: "The idea of finding the next Phil to sit next to Holly has been disregarded by This Morning's bosses. It will be Holly along with whichever rotating presenter is selected to join her. It will essentially be Holly's show...

"Bosses hope that they can put all of the Schofield scandal behind them and start concentrating on the content of the show rather than the twosome presenting it. At least this way there won't be any falling out...

"Holly is so excited about the plan, she loves Josie, Craig, Alison and Dermot. It's a happy ship and she made the decision not to quit but instead to return and keep things going while being at the helm. Holly is absolutely determined to head up the challenge to make the show a success again."

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV1 and ITVX.
