This Morning is also expected to hire a black presenter, after ITV bosses unveiled a plan to diversify the chain with more black, Asian and ethnic minority stars.
Last month, The Mail on Sunday revealed that the program’s publisher was looking to change the programming to include a black presenter.
Bosses have now been said to have held a meeting earlier this week to detail a “diversity acceleration plan” to recruit a black presenter for the first time in 32 years of history.
Insiders told The Daily Star that the strategy details how ITV can “better represent contemporary British life on screen and will do so by” increasing the diversity of presenters of ITV’s most prestigious programs “.
