Definitely Aled Jones. ITV News quote him saying this:

Quote:
I am so thrilled tobe joining ITV for their breakfast show. I am thoroughly looking forward to sharing the sofa every morning with such a consummate professional as Lorraine Kelly. We've known each other for a very long time and havealways had a lot of fun together. We hope that the viewers enjoy being part of our breakfast family.


Maybe Lorraine suggested him as a co-host having known each other for such a long time?


It's not just about chemistry though. It's clearly ability, and it's unclear as to whether he'll be good enough to handle such a programme. Not the most demanding of gigs, I'll admit, but he doesn't have a wealth of experience in this field.

Interesting choice, I originally thought it was the other Aled Jones from Radio 1 Laughing.

No doubt it's a big risk but pairings that people think will work often don't, and ones that people are unsure of turn out to be the best. I look forward to seeing how this one works out but its clear there will be more of a 'Lorraine' direction than a news based one, which if true is a good starting point. I do think he might be a bit too 'middle class' for Daybreak though. It will work for their audience, but I think I'll be sticking with BBC Breakfast.

I just really struggle seeing him coping in particular with the softer elements of the show. Whichever way they go with Daybreak, I don't think it's best suited to Aled's seemingly high-brow appeal. His typical viewership for Songs of Praise is drastically different to that of Daybreak.

I don't post much but I will stand up for any choir boy.
I think he presented on S4C for a while on an evening magazine programme, where he didn't seem too high brow.
