ITV This Morning viewers make decision over Josie and Andi as Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield remain off-screen

This Morning viewers tuning into the latest edition of the show have made a decision over Josie Gibson and Andi Peters as hosts. The pair were back at the helm of the ITV daytime programme on Wednesday (January 3) after kicking off the new year on the first show of 2023 on Tuesday.

With the new year underway, This Morning fans expected to see This Morning's usual hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield back at the helm of the popular programme. However, they were greeted by Andi who said: "Hello and welcome to your Tuesday's This Morning," before Josie added: "But this isn't any old This Morning, this is your first of 2023!"

Andi and Josie hosted another jam-packed show before returning today (Wednesday) with the mid-week edition of the show. And again, it was a busy one with the pair being joined by Dave Fishwick, aka Bank of Dave, who was on hand to offer some money-saving advice, as well as former rugby star James Haskell who was promoting his new book.

And as Josie and Andi steered the two-and-a-half-hour show, This Morning fans were commenting on social media about the pairing. @vickster51 tweeted: "I think Andi Peters & Josie Gibson should stay as regular presenters #ThisMorning." @sparkloaf26 posted: "@thismorning where is Holly amd phill can u get andi and josie to say please #ThisMorning."

@tvreality93 commented: "Actually really liking josie and andi presenting together #ThisMorning." @UKTVForever echoed: "#ThisMorning I Love Josie & Andi presenting." @Rhianlovesbooks added: "Andi and Josie and Alison and Dermot should be the permanent hosts #ThisMorning The show is so stale with Phil and Holly now."

Andi and Josie last hosted the show together on December 23. Andi took over from Craig Doyle who had been Josie's co-host for the last week before Christmas. This Morning did appear on air between Christmas and New Year and viewers said they were 'very surprised' to see Holly and Phillip hosting.

While Holly is likely still enjoying her time off with her three children - Harry, Belle, and Chester who she shares with husband Dan Baldwin - Phillip enjoyed a New Year getaway and recently shared how he was 'sad' about having to return home. Ss This Morning viewers tweeted about Holly and Phillip's whereabouts, Phillip was taking to Instagram with a snap of himself.

The 60-year-old Dancing On Ice host posted a selfie from Denmark as he said: " Sad to leave Copenhagen. No question, the friendliest city I’ve ever visited."
