GMTV proves that a news station can mix entertainment with serious news.
It starts off with the "News Hour", an hour of stories that are currently affecting the United Kingdom. It is presented by the superb John Stapleton and Penny Smith, and the newsreader during this hour is quite usually decent as well. The only problem with this hour is the phone-in competition. It just doesn't suit the type of programme, but apart from that, it's brilliant! Then we have "GMTV Today". Two and a half hours of news, showbiz and entertainment. It's usually presented by Fiona Phillips and Andrew Castle from Monday to Wednesday, then Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard on Thursday and Friday. It also has TV pundit Richard Arnold give his verdict on the evening's telly, although sometimes I don't agree with what he says.
Then we have LK Today from Monday to Thursday, presented by the lovely, sassy Lorraine Kelly. 50 minutes of fashion, showbiz and lifestyle features.
On Friday after GMTV Today, we have Entertainment Today, a show that provides you with the latest entertainment information, presented by Ben Shephard and the gorgeous Jenni Falconer.
So to summarise, this is what to watch in the mornings from Monday to Friday while getting ready for work or getting the kids ready for school. It is the real morning glory!
