Rochelle Humes breaks silence about This Morning scandal and her future on the show

Rochelle Humes has broken her silence on her future at This Morning during an Instagram Q&A as ITV continues to search for a new co-star to join Holly Willoughby.

Rochelle Humes, 34, was asked by fans if she would be co-hosting the show again, before confirming to her followers that she will be making a return to the hit ITV show as a relief presenter.

The former Saturdays singer, who has spent some time away from the show, confirmed that she will be making a return, as she said: “Yes, I’m back in the summer”.

Rochelle, who has been working with ITV for almost a decade, shared her thoughts after Phillip Schofield stepped down from his long-term position due to an “unwise but not illegal” affair with a younger male colleague.

Shortly after Phillip left, the mum of three took to social media where she said: “I've proudly been part of the This Morning family for almost 10 years and over the last few, it has been an absolute pleasure learning so much from you.

"Thanks for all the lessons – you are a fountain of knowledge and laughter."

GB News has reported that ITV bosses are still searching for a permanent replacement since Phillip left.

OK! has contacted ITV representatives for comment.

Since Phillip’s dramatic departure, Holly has been joined by several stand-in hosts over the past month including Josie Gibson, Dermot O’Leary and Craig Doyle. However, the star took some time out last weekend and left "life's worries and responsibilities" behind as she enjoyed a weekend at Glastonbury Festival.

The 42 year oldreportedly went on a 12-hour bender during the legendary event and admitted that the festival made her "feel about 20 again."

Writing for her Wylde Moon newsletter, she began: "Hi, how’re you feeling today?"

Continuing with the newsletter, Holly said: "Just what is it about going to a festival that makes you feel about 20 again? There's something so freeing about it…as if you've entered a world that encourages you to leave life's worries and responsibilities at the gate and let your hair down.

She added: "I spent three amazing days with incredible friends, listening to some of the best musicians on the planet – all whilst dancing like lunactics.

"Music brings people together like nothing else. I cannot begin to imagine how it must feel as an artist looking out at a Glastonbury crowd to see the faces of each and every person singing your lyrics.

And she continued: "Never was this more poignant than the crowd singing back to Lewis Capaldi on Saturday, which was probably one of the most touching moments of the weekend."
