Phillip Schofield & Holly Willoughby This Morning

The nation's favourite daytime telly presenter will be taking a break this summer and a Spice Girl will be filling in!

We might be used to seeing Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield light up our screens every day but every now and again the loveable duo need a break.

The pair has retired from our screens for much of the summer, with stand-ins Ruth Langsford and Eamon Holmes stepping in to keep their seat warm. 

However, it's now been announced that TWO new faces will be taking over the sofa on August Bank Holiday Monday, and one of them is Geri Horner.

The 44-year-old Spice Girl will take to the sofas along with This Morning regular Rylan Neal-Clark following weeks of "secret meetings" with bosses at ITV.

Rylan, 28, took to Twitter to announce the news after much speculation and shared a picture of his screen test with Geri to confirm the exciting plans.

"So I'm very excited to say after secret meetings and hiding her in my pocket I'm hosting @thismorning with @GeriHalliwell Mon 28 Aug! Xxx ‬ can't wait x (sic)."

Meanwhile, Geri also teased the news with her fans on the social-networking site adding: "We're ready to spice up your life this August Bank Holiday with @GeriHalliwell guest presenting on our famous sofa! Stay calm @Rylan! (sic)"

The 'Raining Men' hitmaker is no doubt hoping the stint will help launch her presenting career as she's reportedly keen to carve out a name for herself as a host.

A source said recently: "Geri wants to reinvent herself as a telly host and this was an offer she couldn't turn down. She is keen to take her TV career further, loves 'This Morning' and has appeared on it several times. It's going to be the beginning of a glittering TV career. 

It's a massive coup for 'This Morning' to sign Geri. She is very popular and has a massive following, especially with stay-at-home mums."
