Hopefully the news They broadcast offers them perspective. As people are losing work across the country, and many will struggle for work for a long time to come, they have a secure income. Unsure how much time they’d give their ego, worrying about the hours they have in front of GMB cameras.

A well earned break for Lorraine and lovely to see Christine back 😀

Sean Fletcher has been confirmed as presenting a few Summer shows in August with Ranvir after speaking on the show yesterday.

Think it's just Christmas and Summer that he makes his bi-annual appearances as presenter on the show.

I think Adil said he was switching to Mon-Wed mid-summer presumably when Ben takes a break so I guess he'll do Thu/Fri then. Because god forbid any presenter in television works a five day week nowadays.

I assume Charlotte and Ranvir are sharing Wed-Fri?
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

A five day work week for these shows are never the norm, even in the states. This is one of the luxuries of working in television. Many US talk show hosts also only do a four day week. I do know people like Stephen Colbert does a five day week, by pre-taping his Friday edition on Thursday, enabling him to say he works five days.

I think you'll find most people that work in television, work (at least) Mon to Friday, about 37-40 hours, a bit like the big bad scary real world.

Well, indeed, and before he retired my dad, who certainly didn't work in television, worked four days a week, because he worked long and inconvenient hours.

Another example of people working long and inconvenient hours could be those who have to get up at 3am on a regular basis.

I was not meaning real workers in television - I meant the presenters who "work" a three or four day week. The real workers, the production staff of course work long and hard, I meant it was the luxury of the presenters to get these short weeks into their contract. Sorry for any confusion.

Most of them have other presenting duties. e.g Ben hosts Tipping Point and Ranvir does ITV News and a show currently on in peak time on Thursdays. Just because they aren't on screen doesn't mean that they aren't working full time hours. Also some may be part time workers due to their own circumstances.

On Loose Women most of them do 2 or 3 days a week, some just once a week but I doubt it their main job.

I have to disagree . ALL the US morning show hosts do a 5 day week, even now when most of them have 3 regular hosts. Some even do/did a 6 day week, like George Stephanopoulos who does a Sunday morning politics show. On cable, Jake Tapper also does a Sunday show, besides his weekday show, Wolf Blitzer has been doing months without a day off during COVID19.

Savannah Guthrie still came to work on the morning she had her latest eye surgery scheduled, did half of the show and then left to have surgery. TV hosts like her have multi-million dollar contracts but they do put in the hours and them being on the show, daily, is important.

It's true that some daytime talk show people tape Friday shows, but even that doesn't happen all the time. The View has been live on Fridays most weeks now, wanting to keep up their momentum and ratings surge.

To sum it up, imo, the US and UK approach when it comes to personality commitment to daily shows is completely opposite.

It's not a bad thing that UK TV shows have presenters job share, if anything it makes things a bit easier especially when the A team is off sick, have other commitments or is on holiday then one or both of the B team can cover.

I’ve not seen the actual promo on screen, but it’s very reminiscent of TV-am era GMB...
