Katherine Kelly lands This Morning presenter job

Katherine Kelly, who played Becky McDonald in Coronation Street, has landed a new job on ITV1’s This Morning.

Katherine will present a four-part mini-series called Kelly’s Heroes which starts on June 11. In it, Katherine will tour the country meeting unsung heroes and charity campaigners.

Katherine said: “When I left Coronation Street I made it clear that I wanted the door to remain open so I’d be able to return. They’re always asking me to go back and I think that one day, I will. I have so many happy memories from working on The Street and I do miss those on the show. But I’m really excited about the This Morning project, although I had no idea just how difficult presenting actually is. I got to meet all these ordinary people doing extraordinary things – all oblivious to how inspirational they all are. It was very humbling.”

What dreadful luvvie speak. She's only just left, but is "always" being asked back. And presenting is so difficult - for anyone who finds walking and talking at the same time a trial.

It sounds like she's not getting as many offers of acting jobs as she thought she would.
