The Strictly Come Dancing favourite will make his debut on the ITV Daytime show this Friday.
Anton Du Beke will present Friday's episode of This Morning.
He said: "I can’t wait. I’ve big boots to fill, but hopefully viewers will welcome me with open arms.
"No doubt they’ll be a sprinkling of dancing with Rochelle at some point.”
Anton, whose real name is Tony Beak, is no stranger to the famous sofa, as he currently presents a "Baking Fails" segment on the show.
He's also pally with both Eamonn and Ruth after he was paired with the Loose Women star on the 2017 series of the BBC dancing competition.
Earlier this year, Eamonn made a friendly dig at the housewives' favourite when AJ Pritchard, 24, appeared on the show.
When asked which member of the Royal family he would most like to be paired with, AJ said "The Queen."
Quick as a flash Eamonn replied: “If the Queen were to sign-up she would be dancing with Anton.
“He gets all the duffers.”
Ruth, amused by her husband's cruel comment defended her former partner, telling AJ: “He gets all the mature ones.”
Usual presenters Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield are currently off work for half-term, but will be back from Monday.
