This Morning's Josie Gibson was 'next Holly' - now she's 'walking away from drama'

Rumours have circulated over who could take Holly Willoughby’s daytime crown since she left This Morning last year. Josie Gibson, whose humour, sunny personality and down-to-earth presenting style has made her hugely popular with viewers, has been a frontrunner – tipped for great things when she came out of the I’m A Celeb jungle last December, in fourth place. Yet the laid-back mum-of-one, who joined the This Morning family in 2019, seemed to hint in a rather cryptic post on her Instagram Stories recently, that she wants to take a step back from all the whispers that have been swirling for months.
As speculation rises about her future on This Morning, the 39-year-old spoke of “drama” and “disrespect” to her 704,000 followers – but the mysterious post, which she gave no context to, was taken down soon after. Josie’s post also touched on her “prioritising peace” and choosing “calm over conflict”. It read, “The older you get the more you choose calm over conflict and distance over disrespect.
“Drama becomes intolerant to you and your peace becomes your ultimate priority. You start surrounding yourself with people who are good for your mental health, heart and soul.” A source has told OK! following Cat Deeley’s rumoured offer of the biggest job in daytime telly, “Josie wears her heart on her sleeve and sometimes does things – like post on her social media – as a knee-jerk reaction without thinking.
Then she thinks about it afterwards,” they added. “She was likely hoping that she’d come out of the jungle and be the automatic choice for the top job at This Morning after Holly left.
