Love Island’s Kem and Amber to be GMB showbiz correspondents

Love Island winners Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies will be returning to TV as showbiz correspondents on Good Morning Britain.

The reality stars will fill in for Richard Arnold in the last week of August.

Cetinay joked the duo would be stealing a job from host Piers Morgan, who was a vocal critic of the ITV2 show.

He told Good Morning Britain: “So basically we are going to be taking our best mate Piers’s role.

“I’m only joking. At the end of August we are going to be bringing all the entertainment and showbiz to the show, a bit of youth, we are going to be slotting in for Richard in the last week of August.”

The couple said they are still adjusting to their new found celebrity, with Cetinay saying: “We were going into shops and our faces were on the front pages of newspapers.

Davies added: “People would come in and say the show is massive last year but you have no idea until you get out how big it actually is.”

Hairdresser Cetinay also confirmed he has put his plans to open his own barber shop on hold while he capitalises on his new profile.

He said: “Just before I went on the show I was in the process of opening the shop but I’ve put it aside for now, I’m going to more go into my own hair range, something I can put out for everyone to see, rather than a shop.

“I think it will take up too much time at the moment.

“The music career is definitely going to go off soon too, I’m talking to Stormzy.”

Cetinay and Davies are not the only new additions to the ITV morning line-up, with Christine Lampard filling in for Lorraine Kelly while she is on holiday.

Lampard will front Lorraine for three weeks from July 31 and will welcome guests including new Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker. She last covered for Kelly during the Easter holidays earlier this year.

Lampard said: “I’m really excited to be back in the hot seat whilst Lorraine is off on her holidays. I’ll do my best to fill her shoes for a few weeks and have some fun along the way too!”

In the last two weeks in August Good Morning Britain will air until 9.30am. Kelly returns to the show on September 4.
