John Barrowman – aka Jack Harkness of Doctor Who and the upcoming Torchwood – is to act as stand-in host on the ITV flagship daytime magazine This Morning.

From April 10th, Barrowman will take the reins for a week, standing in for usual co-host Phillip Schofield. He will accompany Fern Britton as host, reports The Daily Record:

He said: “It’s the best British daytime show.

“I always wake up and watch Fern who I think is fantastic and the sexiest woman on television.”
