Former Blue Peter presenter, Gethin Jones, has joined Daybreak as a features reporter.

Jones began his new role at Daybreak on Monday and is presenting a week long special for Children’s Hospice Week.

Gethin’s visiting different hospices around the country each morning meeting children and their families and looking at the great work they do.

He began filming two weeks ago when he took a group of children from a hospice to meet Simon Cowell on the set of Britain’s Got Talent.

Next week (from 28th May) Gethin will front the Jubilee Jamboree feature, a series of special broadcasts from around the UK to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

David Kermode, the editor of Daybreak, said: “We’re so excited to have Gethin on board. He has bags of enthusiasm, he’s brilliant at putting those he meets at ease and he has loads of experience of live TV. He’s going to be a big star in our new line up.”
