Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond are seen as successors to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on ITV’s This Morning, according to a report.
Bosses on the show have been impressed by the duo, who started hosting Friday editions in January, and believe they are a “breath of fresh air”, The Sun reports.
The pair replaced Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.
Dermot, 48, and Alison, 46, have just finished a week-long stint hosting the show as Holly, 40, and Phillip, 59, took a break.
‘They are very much viewed as a breath of fresh air’
A show insider told the newspaper: “There are no firm plans to replace the hosts but producers always keep an eye on potential heirs.
"Alison and Dermot will have been scrutinised during their week-long stint to see how This Morning would look if they took over full-time.
“They are very much viewed as a breath of fresh air and have had a largely positive response from viewers.”
Phillip has presented the daytime show since 2002, while Holly replaced Fern Britton as host in 2009.
