They’ve carved out careers on screen over six decades and after almost two years of being apart, the presenting powerhouse of female hosts on Good Morning Britain, Lorraine, This Morning and Loose Women have featured together in a new ITV image and promo to mark International Women’s Day.
The super accomplished female cast of presenters were photographed by Amy Brammall earlier this month and the promo to accompany the new image will air across ITV from Saturday night (26th February) in the run up to International Women’s Day on 8th March.
From one of the first ever female broadcasters in their ranks (Gloria Hunniford), the first ever female rector of Dundee University (Lorraine Kelly) to waterskiing the channel (Christine Lampard) they have accrued multiple achievements.
Between them, they’ve reported on the biggest news events worldwide over the last 50 years, including 9/11, Madeline McCann’s disappearance, Lockerbie, Princess Diana’s death, Dunblane and the Manchester bombing.
They hold in their number a two-time TRIC News Presenter of the Year (Susanna Reid), a television excellence award for coverage of the Westminster attacks (Ranvir Singh, Golden Nymph for Live Breaking News in 2017). There’s also a lawmaker (Linda Robson), one of the first female newspaper editors (Janet Street-Porter) and several charity patrons, of organisations like Scope and those tackling knife crime.
They kept us informed and entertained in good measure across the Pandemic and they
have brought joy to our screens with coverage of royal weddings, royal babies, the London 2012 Olympics, people scared of custard, and The Rock, Beyonce, George Michael, Hugh Jackman and of course Alison Hammond’s eternally joyous and viral interview with Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling – which has over 16 million views worldwide.
Emma Gormley, Managing Director of ITV Daytime said: “I’m beyond proud to work alongside this amazing group of women, who both individually and collectively have accrued an incredible array of broadcasting achievements. Their experience and expertise in front of camera is second to none and this year’s International Women’s day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate them all.”
