THIS Morning star Rylan Clark has made an epic return to the sofa – one year after hosting with Ruth Langsford.
It comes after The Sun revealed the TV star would be standing in on Monday after Holly Willoughby's recent departure.
Rylan, 35, joined This Morning regular Josie Gibson today and looked dapper dressed in a smart cream shirt and black jeans.
Both Rylan and Josie, 36, wore a paper poppy ahead of Remembrance Day.
Josie welcomed Rylan back to the show and asked him for an update on his mum's health, two months after her nightmare fall on holiday.
Rylan said he splashed out on private jet to get his mum Linda home safely.

The flagship programme has been left in crisis since star Holly, 42, quit a fortnight ago.
It came just months after Phillip Schofield, 61, was axed for having had an affair with a much younger runner, leaving a shortage among the presenter rotation.
A TV source said: "Rylan is already part of the This Morning family and an absolute presenting professional.
"He has experience both on the sofa and fronting his own telly shows so the audience are safe in his hands.
"He is excited about coming back into the fold and bosses are keen to see how viewers respond to him and his chemistry with Josie with the view to getting him back in again in the near future.
"It's been a turbulent time for the series and hosts like Rylan are vital when it comes to steadying the ship."
