Hobby comper, TV lover and geek with a passion for motorcycles. I've a background in print and am a self-taught webmaster. I mainly look after the website, adding competitions/quizzes and managing the news.

Amanda Holden has a new job replacing Holly Willoughby on This Morning and on a few other shows that Holly works. Don’t worry though, it’s all with Holly’s grateful blessing as Holly is going on maternity leave again in September. She’s got another little one on the way and ITV has picked a perfect ‘sub’ for her in Amanda Holden.

The girls at ITV have it all together with covering for each other in times of need. Holly is at it again, producing babies, and Amanda Holden is there to cover for her. ITV has the best presenters to choose from and they’ve made a wise choice once again. I look forward to watching This Morning with Amanda starting in September.
