Amid calls for This Morning to hire permanent non-white stars to present the show, Rochelle, Alison, and Ore have been put on the presenting rosta, while hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield take their summer break. 

Opening with a flourish, Rochelle teased having a 'mystery partner' while talking ahead of the show while speaking to Andi Peters, who is currently sitting in for Lorraine Kelly on her show.

And then when introducing Alison, she said: 'She's shy. retiring, sort of doesn't want anyone to make a fuss. It's only Alison Hammond!'

To the tune of jubilant music Alison then entered the studio with her arms in the air as she declared: 'Yes you knew it, I'm here bubs. I'm on the show.'
