Ben Shephard has broken his silence on potentially replacing Phillip Schofield on This Morning.

Good Morning Britain presenter Ben has been rumoured as a potential replacement for Phillip Schofield on the ITV magazine show, and he has now opened up himself on the speculation.

Speaking at the Pride of Britain Awards, he told Mail Online: “What I can tell you is I’m doing some more – I’m gonna be doing some more but I’m just helping out really.

“So I’ve got some days coming up between now and Christmas.

“So I’m not exactly sure but I’m still very, very much part of the furniture.”

The rumours come after Phillip’s departure from the ITV staple earlier this year.

Ever since, co-star Holly Willoughby has continued to front the show along with a string of other presenters.

Craig Doyle, Josie Gibson and Friday presenters Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond have stepped in to host the show alongside Holly.

Ben has also got some experience fronting the popular daytime show, having starred with Holly last month.

Some sources have claimed Ben would be the perfect permanent addition to the show.

“Ben did really well and the bosses loved his partnership with Holly and there was great feedback from many avenues,” they said.

Speaking to Mail Online, the source continued: “Ben is known throughout ITV as being very popular with the audiences of whatever shows he hosts.

“He is also trusted by the public and is much loved within ITV. He has hosted so many shows for the channel.”

ITV recently assured that “no decisions have been made” regarding Phillip’s official replacement.

With Ben confirming that he’d be back on the show soon, could the rumours end up being true?

Ben is a favourite on Good Morning Britain and also hosts game show Tipping Point – could he be moving over to the daytime show?

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV.
