Dermot O'Leary should 'leave This Morning' while 'credibility is intact', claims expert

An expert believes Dermot O’Leary should think about his future on This Morning while his “credibility is intact”.

Will Hobson, PR Director at Rise at Seven shared: “Alison and Dermot are fan favourites on this morning so I don’t think their positions are in danger.

“However the show will be under some heat for quite some while so he should definitely think about diversifying where he presents.”

As well as This Morning, Dermot also has his own BBC Radio 2 show at the weekend.

The expert claimed Dermot “should definitely be expanding his relationship with the BBC.”

He added to the Daily Star: “If I represented him that would be my recommendation to leave This Morning whilst his credibility is intact.

“Dermot is the new star of the show but he should be thinking about his future given the circumstances”. has reached out to Dermot O’Leary’s representative for comment.

Dermot is often seen on Friday’s This Morning with Alison, however, since Phillip Schofield’s departure from the show, he has also co-hosted with Holly Willoughby.

ITV is yet to announce whether they will replace Phillip permanently, but the show has seen many guest stars stepping in to present.

Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle have become regular faces on This Morning and in recent weeks, have often featured on the show alongside Holly.

Rochelle Humes, who is also a staple on the programme, recently discussed her absence from the show.

The pop star addressed the issue in an Ask Me Anything Q&A session on Instagram.

One fan asked the presenter: “Are you still hosting This Morning?”

“Yes I’m back in the summer,” Rochelle replied when discussing her show return.

The last time she was seen on screen was just after Phillip had just stepped down from the show.

The Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
