Helen Skelton said: “I am so excited to become a more regular member of the Morning Live family, and be in such good company! It’s really nice to be part of a programme giving so many people a voice. Everything we talk about on the show is what my friends and family are texting me about, we’re right at the heart of what matters to people right now. We’re not just highlighting problems though, we’re finding solutions and I love that we’re able to help in some small way.”

Michelle Ackerley added: “I am delighted to join Helen as part of the regular Morning Live line-up. I have absolutely loved being a part of the show so far, which we know can make a real difference to people’s lives. I’m looking forward to keeping our audiences company in the mornings and doing that alongside friends.”

Gethin Jones enthused: “I absolutely love working with Helen and Michelle and I’m thrilled they’re going to be a more regular part of the fantastic team at Morning Live. ”

For now, Morning Live airs Monday – Fridays at 9:15PM on BBC One and iPlayer.
