Where is Morning Live filmed and who are the presenters? Fans of the BBC show are curious to know more after it was announced it wouldn’t be on our screens for a while last week due to a scheduling shake up.

The popular daytime programme usually airs weekdays from 9:15am-10am. But one of its presenters, Gethin Jones, announced last week that the show would be taken off air temporarily because of the Women’s World Cup 2023.

Here’s everything we know about where is Morning Live filmed and who are the presenters?

Where is Morning Live filmed?

After originally being filmed at BBC Studios where The One Show was previously shot, Morning Live made the move to a new location - and a prestigious one at that. It is filmed on the site of the former Granada Studios where Coronation Street used to be made. The studio is in Salford, Manchester, in a 10th floor set.

When is Morning Live on TV?

Normally, when there isn’t a schedule shake-up, you can watch Morning Live on weekdays from 9:15am on BBC One. You can also catch up on any missed episodes on BBC iPlayer. 

Who are the Morning Live presenters?

Former Hear’Say star Kym Marsh and Gethin Jones are the main hosts of Morning Live. Other presenters that guest host include Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh, Sara Cox, Rav Wilding and Sam Quek.

Welsh presenter Gethin is no stranger to our screens. His television career began on Welsh language channel S4, as a host of children's programmes including Popty, Mas Draw and the flagship children's entertainment show Uned 5.

Gethin joined Blue Peter in 2005 as a presenter and since then has gone on to host his own BBC Radio 5 Live show, The National Lottery: Big 7, BBC Proms in the Park,  The One Show, documentary series Crime and Punishment, and Heart Network's Sunday Morning Breakfast. Gethin was also a reporter for Daybreak and has competed on Strictly Come Dancing and Celebrity Masterchef. He joined Morning Live with Kym in 2020.

Kym Marsh is an actress, TV presenter, and singer. As well as Morning Live, she has recently starred in BBC One's revival of Waterloo Road as Nicky Walters. She started her career as a singer in pop group Hear'Say before embarking on a solo career.

Kym made her TV acting debut in 2005 in an episode of BBC One show Doctors, playing a character called Ruth Parry. That same year she became a regular panellist on ITV daytime show Loose Women. She has also starred in Hollyoaks: In the City and joined the cast of Coronation Street, playing Michelle Connor from 2006 until 2019. After quitting Corrie, Kym had various jobs including a host on The One Show.

Kimberley Walsh is a singer, actress and TV presenter. She rose to fame after winning Popstars: The Rivals and her and fellow bandmates Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts and the late Sarah Harding were one of the UK’s best-selling female artists. Girls Aloud still hold the record for the shortest time between forming the band and reaching number one, with Sound of the Underground.

Sara Cox is a radio DJ and TV presenter who started her career in the 90s, and was famously part of the ‘ladette’ culture. She was a presenter on The Big Breakfast, has hosted TV shows including BBC Two’s Love in the Countryside, The Great Pottery Throw Down and The Sara Cox Show. She currently presents the BBC Radio Two drivetime show.

Rav Wilding is a former police officer turned presenter. Whilst still a police officer he began presenting on Crimewatch in 2004, and has presented on Crimewatch Live, since it began 12 years ago as Crimewatch Roadshow.

Sam Quek is an Olympic hockey player for England and TV presenter. She has appeared on I’m a Celebrity…. Get Me Out Of Here and been a panellist on several sporting shows.
