Words fail me. Is this what has become of "Scotland's most iconic post-war socialist"? What do comrades think about this? Has anyone been consulted with beforehand? Just read the press release from the This Morning website for yourself:
This Morning Welcomes Tommy and Gail
Today, This Morning can confirm Tommy and Gail Sheridan will be taking over the sofa at the start of the next series. They are replacing Fern Britton and Phillip Schofield. Their last show will be broadcast on 17 July, which is Fern's birthday.
"Gail and I are really thrilled to be presenting the show", said Tommy.
"I've been an avid viewer of This Morning for many years. To get a job like this is a dream for us both. We look forward to working with all the crew and the show's regulars."
Tommy and Gail shot to prominence after a successful court case in 2006. More recently firebrand Tommy has been entertaining viewers in the Celebrity Big Brother house.
ITV Director of Factual and Daytime, Alison Sharman, said: "We are very pleased Tommy and Gail are joining us. They are naturals in front of the camera and have just the right bedside manner to smooth over any hairy moments."
ITV Studios' Controller of Daytime and Lifestyle Features, Fiona Keenaghan, said: "It is fantastic news for This Morning. Tommy and Gail are so enthusiastic and can't wait to swing into action."
