Louie Spence to join Daybreak

Louie Spence is to be a guest host on 'Daybreak'.

The former 'Dancing on Ice' judge will present Richard Arnold's showbiz slot on the ITV1 breakfast show from Monday to Friday at 7.50am next week, and he can't wait to give viewers some behind-the-scenes gossip.

He said: ''I am so excited to be stepping in as Daybreak's new showbiz reporter while Richard Arnold takes a break. There is nothing I like better than getting all the behind the scenes gossip from the showbiz world.

''January is already looking to be a very busy month in the showbiz world with new celebrity reality show 'Splash!' coming to our screens as well as this year's 'Dancing on Ice'.

''Join me, Louie Spence with all the glitz, glamour, the ups and downs and of course the dramas. Tune in next week to see what I will be getting up to.''

Louie is the latest star to fill in for former 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant Richard, with 'X Factor' star Rylan Clark taking on hosting duties for a week last month, and 'Emmerdale' actress Natalie Anderson - who plays Alicia Metcalfe in the soap - filled in this week.

Rylan - who is currently appearing on 'Celebrity Big Brother' - said at the time: ''I'm a massive fan of the show and it's going to be so much fun sharing all the showbiz news and gossip with the nation each morning.

''I'm looking forward to keeping Richard's seat warm while he's swanning off on holiday, but I won't be asking for any dancing tips just yet!''
