And according to the Mirror, Holly and Phil are set to cash in over the move, bringing their annual salary up to £750,000 each.

Holly was reportedly given a £200,000 pay rise from ITV bosses in 2017 to bring her in line with Phillip’s own £600,000 earnings following reports of the disparity.

Now both are getting a boost as This Morning airs for longer from 10am instead of the usual 10.30am slot.

Meanwhile Good Morning Britain will start half an hour later at 6.30am and Lorraine Kelly will start late too.

ITV axed The Jeremy Kyle Show permanently after guest Steve Dymond, 63, died from an overdose.

He had appeared on the show 10 days previously which saw him fail a love rat lie detector test.

Channel bosses hastily rescheduled episodes of Dickinson’s Real Deal in the show’s usual slot until coming up with this solution.

Jeremy’s flagship series had been the most popular programme on ITV’s daytime schedules with an excess of one million viewers tuning in daily.
