This Morning fans are hoping that Cat Deeley’s role as co-host becomes permanent, following her three-day run on the show.

The presenter fronted the popular ITV show for the first three days of this week. She joined Rylan Clark on Monday and Tuesday (13th and 14th November), and teamed up with Craig Doyle on Wednesday (15th November).

As Wednesday’s show kicked off, Cat said: "It's kind of my last day today, you're finishing me off, that's it, I'm done. I'm cooked,”

She added: “I'm going home and I'm taking my mug with me!"

After Craig made a joke that he usually takes “quite a lot of stuff” and that he has “absolutely cleared the place out,” he told his co-host: “Ah, you'll be back, Deeley, you'll be back." 

Cat asked: "Do you think?"

As ITV bosses continue to search for Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield’s permanent replacements, fans have been impressed with Cat’s stint on the sofa, and have taken to social media to say so.

One commenter wrote: “Absolutely loving seeing Cat on this morning. She’s such a natural and still so beautiful. So down to earth & funny. Pls make it a permanent thing!!”

Another added: “Please keep Cat with This Morning she’s been amazing!"

Other fans expressed how much they enjoyed seeing Wednesday’s pairing. One person said: “Yes yes yes, you have finally found the perfect pairing for the show, Craig and Cat. They’re not talking over each other, and have the right amount of serious and playful like Phil and Holly had.”

Another agreed, saying: “I think you’ve got your dream team right there with Craig and Cat. Please make them the permanent presenters 😬!”

Others were equally impressed with Rylan and Cat working together, with one viewer saying: “Loved Cat this week, she has been fab, fun, classy knowledgeable and sincere, also great to see Rylan and Cat together, think you’ve found your new team 💝”

This Morning airs Monday to Friday on ITV.
