Jasmine Lowson also replaced Phil Gayle, so whilst looking back it doesn't seem great for diversity for half of the shows life they did have a black or Asian newsreader at least, plus Josie did about two years on The Bigger Breakfast.
As a viewer not once did I think of them being there as a box ticking exercise, but I think that is why I'm a bit lukewarm about this revival as that is how it's coming across, which is somewhat unfair on all those involved as I honestly can't think of a better choice than Mo Gilligan to host - he's about the right age, at the right point of his career and a talented guy who has long been due a breakout hit, though if this did take off once we return to normal times not sure how compatible a breakfast show would be with a touring comedian.
As for possible co-host Maya Jama springs to mind - think I've seen them do a few things together in a presenter/guest capacity so there is a bit of chemistry there.
Do we know when this is airing - I've not seen a date mentioned other than 2021.
