VERNON Kay and Rochelle Humes are favourites to replace Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning after their queue-jump scandal.
That’s according to bookmakers William Hill who were forced to put a price on the part timers taking over as lead presenters before the end of the year.
William Hill spokesperson, Tony Kenny, said: “They have been mainstays of the show for well over a decade but there have been plenty of calls for Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby to leave This Morning after the controversy around the royal queue.
“With that in mind, we’ve priced up possible replacements with Vernon Kay and Rochelle Humes the early favourites at 2/1 ahead of Dermot O’Leary and Josie Gibson at 4/1.”

Others who have odds of under 20/1 are Mo Gilligan, Andi Peters, Rylan Clark, Laura Whitmore, and Zoe Ball.
Piers Morgan is also offered up at a colossal 100/1 alongside former This Morning host Fern Britton.
Holly and Phil have now been rocked by a petition to have them axed from the popular ITV show.

She wrote: “This is a photo taken by my sister’s husband yesterday, after he had queued with my sister, their 10-year-old daughter and my disabled mum for 13+ hours. My mum was ushered out of @Hollywills and @Schofe way without even a thanks.”
