Presenter is happy to stay on The One Show

Christine Bleakley has revealed she was asked to take over from Fern Britton on This Morning.

But the Strictly Come Dancing star, 29, has decided to stay with the BBC.

‘I am more than happy at The One Show,’ Christine tells the Daily Mail.

‘[Doing This Morning] would mean getting up very early. I am definitely a night owl.

‘It is a nice thing to be asked but I am very happy where I am for the time being.’

Fern, 51, will host her last This Morning show on 17 July.

Meanwhile, Phillip Schofield, 47, reportedly wants producers to hire Myleene Klass, 31.
