Kay had been set to join the line-up for three days alongside regular guest host Rochelle Humes, before Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby return from their summer break.

Holmes, who has been anchoring the show over the summer with Ruth Langsford, tweeted: Just when u thought you'd got rid of me...sickness with @AlisonHammond and @vernonkay means I'm off the bench.

"Get well soon to them but I have my boots on and I'm ready to play.

"Monday and Tues line up is now myself and @RochelleHumes. Hope you can join us."

In an interview with The Sun, Kay said he had tested positive for Covid.

He told the newspaper: "I'm absolutely gutted that because of a positive Covid test I'm no longer able to present on This Morning next week with Rochelle nor do Radio 2 guest hosting and Steve Wright's cover, two iconic shows which I've been a fan of for decades."
