Kym Marsh and Gethin Jones have been praised as they made their hosting debut on their new BBC daytime show Morning Live.

Former Hear’Say singer Kym, 44, and 42 year old TV presenter Gethin appeared on their new BBC One show which promised to deliver a “lively and entertaining mix of topical content and expert advice”.

Kym and Gethin kick started the first episode of their show on Monday 26 October on BBC One.

As the pair were introduced by BBC Breakfast journalist Louise Minchin, the pair were seen standing socially distanced and Gethin said: “Welcome everyone to the first ever Morning Live.”

As the opening credits rolled, he added: “Thank you for joining us on the first ever Morning Live.”

Kym, who recently hit out at Lauren Goodger, added: “Every morning for the next eight weeks we will be here to get your thoughts on the things that matter most to you.

“And, we’re not only here to listen we want to solve your problems, too.”

Gethin agreed and added: “We’ve got a team of experts who’ve been working flat out behind the scenes to bring you the best advice.”


As the first show went underway, viewers took to social media to praise the new show and the pair’s presenting skills.

One wrote: “loving the new show @msm4rsh and @GethincJones #morninglive”.

Another added: “This #MorningLive on BBC One is such an original idea…a breath of fresh air!”

While a third said: “8 weeks of Kym Marsh every morning can only be a good thing”.

Ahead of the show’s launch Kym, who recently revealed she struggled to provide for her children when she was younger, shared her excitement at hosting the new BBC One programme.

She said: “I’ve always enjoyed morning TV, it’s a great way to start the day (with a cuppa in hand of course). I love nothing more than a good catch up, although this will be on a slightly different scale, more of a daily conversation with our lovely viewers.

“I think variety is key so I’m really excited to work with Gethin and our fantastic guest presenters to bring the latest in lifestyle, health and consumer concerns.”

Meanwhile Gethin added: “A presenting role on a morning show like this is a bit of a dream for me.

“What I’m most excited about is the opportunity to delve in to some of the biggest issues at the heart of our everyday lives right now.

“My parents have been shielding and my sister works in a hospital so, as is the case for lots of people, this year has been such a worry.

“For me, this show couldn’t come at a better time. I’m looking forward to working alongside Kym to bring viewers across the UK a much needed boost and of course the important information they need.”
