Daytime television is set for a ratings war after the BBC announced the November launch of a rival to ITV’s award-winning This Morning show, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Corporation chiefs want to model it on their popular evening programme The One Show, with stars such as Stacey Dooley and Rylan Clark-Neal on the shortlist as potential hosts.

Another name in the running is in-demand former England footballer Alex Scott, who is also tipped to replace Sue Barker as anchor on A Question Of Sport.

Starting at 9.15am, the new show is expected to challenge ITV’s mid-morning stars Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, as well as seeking to attract viewers from Lorraine Kelly’s hour-long show that runs from 9am. 

BBC executives hope the programme will also retain viewers from the Breakfast show, which draws an estimated nine million each week, and it is likely to replace Homes Under the Hammer and Island Medics.

A source close to the project said: ‘BBC Breakfast beats Good Morning Britain every day and The One Show is one of the channel’s most loved and popular programmes, so the concept is based on that. The thinking is that if they can put a daytime version of the show on straight after BBC Breakfast, they’ll keep some of those viewers, and will follow the same formula as The One Show but with segments tailored to a new daytime audience.

‘Everyone at the BBC is very excited about this. They know that this could be quite the rival for This Morning, for the first time ever.’

BBC bosses have spent the past six weeks meeting with behind-the-scenes staff to put the show together, with 2018 Strictly winner Ms Dooley – who has a £200,000 contract with the BBC – favourite to be one of the hosts. 

Radio 2 star Rylan is also being considered. He was previously a stand-in presenter on This Morning but also acts as a reserve for radio colleague Zoe Ball’s daily breakfast slot, as well as being her sidekick on It Takes Two, the Strictly spin-off.

Others in the frame to front the new show include Gethin Jones, Ore Oduba, Angellica Bell and former Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh.

But while all have been stand-ins on The One Show, Miss Scott, 35, is thought to be among the frontrunners.

A source close to her said: ‘She is a great favourite of the BBC, she has so many offers on the table at the moment that nothing should be ruled out.

‘She would be perfect for this new programme, she’s clever and very, very likeable. She has very much become a household name.’

Commenting on the new daytime show, a BBC source said: ‘The mix of content aims to both entertain and inform viewers, providing great company and trusted expertise.’

Carla-Maria Lawson, Head of BBC Daytime & Early Peak, added: ‘Following the success of shows such as HealthCheck UK Live, Daily Kitchen Live and Your Money and Your Life with a mix of good company and expert advice reflecting their concerns, we’re excited to be bringing a new daily, topical live programme to BBC1 at 9.15 following BBC Breakfast, and look forward to sharing more details soon.’

tommy fury accidentally dyes his hair silver after using green spray

Tommy Fury admitted to feeling ’embarrassed’ on Friday after he ‘fudged up’ by accidentally dying his hair silver.

The Love Island star, 21, had tried to use green hairspray in the lead-up to Halloween, but was distressed to discover his raven locks had instead taken a sparkling silver sheen.

His girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague was in hysterics after the fact, as she shared a video of him via Instagram and said: ‘I’m crying. Green hairspray gone wrong and we have a house viewing in 10 minutes.’

Going on to share a glimpse of his hair by covering his face with an emoji, Molly-Mae wrote across the snap: ‘I can confirm this is how he went to the viewing. Can probs see this hair from space (sic).’

Tommy addressed the issue with fans later on, as he explained: ‘I never posted the hairspray thing because it fudged up.

‘I put it on and my hair turned completely silver. It was meant to be green so it didn’t go to plan.

‘I felt a bit embarrassed so just going to make it look like it never happened.’

On Saturday, Molly-Mae unveiled the results of her dissolved filler after she was left with ‘botched lips’ following years of procedures.

Posting a video to her YouTube channel documenting her journey on Friday, the Love Island star explained that she had been receiving filler since she was 17 and getting it dissolved was the ‘best decision she’s made in a long time’.

Elsewhere during the footage, Molly-Mae’s boyfriend Tommy Fury was on hand to give his support although he jokingly compared her new lips to a ‘wrinkly cartoon’.

At the start of the video, the reality star showed fans what her lips looked like before the dissolving as she admitted she was ‘really nervous’ to head to Leeds for the procedure.

Molly-Mae said: ‘I remember my lips before filler, there was nothing there. I literally had no lips!

‘Do you notice how unnatural, see how much filler, they feel really hard. It’s just time they went!  

Molly-Mae revealed she had around a total of 5ml of filler in her lips and the last time she had been topped up was a year ago.

Showing the dissolving process being done, the reality star admitted the surgeon had to use a ‘record level amount’ of dissolver.

Olivia previously had her own reality show with ex-boyfriend Chris Hughes called Crackin’ On. 

However, their relationship took a turn for the worse when Chris, 27, broke up with her on camera, telling her the relationship wasn’t making him happy anymore.

He said to her at the time: ‘I love you, I always will. You know that, nothing doubts that. You can’t kid yourself.’

Olivia then reunited with Bradley, whom she was with before Love Island, while Chris found love with his now ex-girlfriend Jesy Nelson.

Olivia Meets Her Match airs on Sunday at 10pm on ITVBe.
