This Morning viewers have called for Josie Gibson to return to the ITV daytime show, as the beloved host is missing in action.

The former Big Brother starlet has been a firm favourite on This Morning since she joined the team in 2019, and after heading up the show all this week alongside newbie Craig Doyle – fans were confused when she didn't appear on their screens at 10am.

Instead of being joined by Josie, who fans reckon he has "good chemistry" with, Craig was joined by Rochelle Humes.

Fans were taken aback when Rochelle appeared on screen, with many taking to Twitter to question where Josie was – with some even calling for her return.

"Rochelle is so good at showing how much better a presenter Josie is! Bring her back #ThisMorning," harshly penned one fan.

"Rather have josie n craig on," added another viewer.

A third then questioned: "Oh! Where’s Josie?"

While a fourth echoed: "Ugh, what happened to Josie & Craig??"

One viewer was chuffed to see Rochelle and Craig host though, and they took to Twitter before the show began at 10am.

They penned: "#ThisMorning Rochelle and Craig on today," complete with a smiley face emoji, hands raised emoji and a loved up emoji.

When Josie joined the show in 2019, her title was a competition announcer, but two years later in 2021 she tried her hand at presenting the series for the first time ever, filling in last minute for Holly Willoughby.

Proving to be a hit with viewers, it was later confirmed that Josie would take on the role of relief presenter – stepping in when main show hosts were enjoying annual leave, holidays or calling in sick.

This week she headed up the show with Craig Doyle, when fans spied the "chemistry" between them.

One fan took to Twitter in the week and said: "I've said it before, but I love these 2 hosting #ThisMorning."

Another person chimed in: "Are Craig and @Josiestweet a thing? There is chemistry right there @thismorning #ThisMorning."

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV and ITVHub.
