Laura Whitmore is tipped to replace Holly Willoughby on ITV’s ‘This Morning‘.

Holly made a shock announcement this week that she would no longer be presenting the mid-morning show after 14 years.

Her departure comes less than six months after her former co-star, Phillip Schofield, quit the show after revelations came to light of an affair with a younger colleague.

The Dublin-born presenter is now a contender to step into the role, among other media personalities.

Laura’s odds of taking a seat on the ‘This Morning‘ couch are 6/1, according to Ladbrokes, with TV personality, Rylan Clarke, the fan favourite to land the gig with odds of 3/1, as reported by Dublin Live.

“Fans have been in a frenzy since news of Holly Willoughby’s ‘This Morning’ departure and following mounting interest, we have opened the betting on who will replace the daytime TV veteran. While it’s still early days, the odds suggest Laura Whitmore is very much in the running,” Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said.

Love Island icon, Maura Higgins, is also in with a chance with odds of 10/1, as well as former Big Brother star Davina McCall with odds of 4/1.
