Josie Gibson has just shown what it was like to be in the frame for a top job presenting popular daytime show This Morning. Speculation was rife that Josie could take the lead on the programme after Holly Willoughby left in October last year.

But it seems that those hopes and rumours didn't happen, as the top job was given to Cat Deeley. In an exclusive interview with OK Magazine, Gibson bared her mind about not taking the main presenter slot. She said that she was passed over for the job and also noted that the show is okay where she is and gives her so much variety and so much fulfillment.

"I actually feel like I am [the main presenter] because I'm on 'This Morning.' I've got my dream gig," Gibson said. She elaborated on her varied responsibilities, which include studio segments, road trips, and hosting competitions.

"I'm an all-rounder, I think. I just love it that I can do absolutely anything. So, between us, I think I've got the best gig," she added. Mother-of-one Gibson joined "This Morning" in 2021 and has quickly become a very recognizable face for viewers, particularly popular for her on-location pieces outside of the studio.

Her relatability to the audience and being flexible in presenting has seen her become a favorite character on the show.

Josie Gibson's Impact

A high-profile programme like "This Morning" is not only high visibility to the public but also close to the viewing public.

Gibson has thrown herself, with much zeal, into her various roles, thus indicating her love for broadcasting and her desire for the success of the programme. However, as "This Morning" evolves, Gibson may not be its leading presenter, but her impact and presence are unmistakable.

An award of a degree in law at the Imperial College of London is meaningless—she is the embodiment of spirited involvement in the show that she has become part of daily, much to the delight of its audience. This coincides with her vision of success, in which versatility and contact with the public are better appreciated than mere titles.

Knowledge of such is not just an insight into what goes on in the mind of Gibson but a keen understanding of how dynamic such a role can be within a platform, offering the talent so many avenues on which they can shine.
