Christine Bleakley wants Phillip Schofield to reunite with Gordon the Gopher

Christine Bleakley wants Phillip Schofield and Gordon the Gopher to return.

The 'This Morning' presenter has revealed she would love to see her co-host bring children's entertainment shows back to Saturday morning television.

She said: "I miss Saturday morning telly. I know there are children's channels now but that was real event telly and it crossed over - you'd watch it with a hangover when you were older too. We need Phil and Gordon the Gopher to come back."

Ant and Dec are another duo that Christine wouldn't mind seeing return to present their Saturday morning show SMTV, as she thinks they're the funniest people on TV.

The 36-year-old beauty told Radio Times magazine: "Ant and Dec are fantastic. They're funny as well as being brilliant presenters. I've never been more embarrassed in my whole life than when I did 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Out of Me Ear!' for 'Saturday Night Takeaway'."

While Christine wants to bring back entertainment shows in the morning, she's moving away from presenting them herself to host walking programme 'Wild Ireland' instead.

She said: "Live shows like 'Dancing on Ice' and 'This Morning' are very exciting to do. But I really enjoyed just chatting away to ordinary people about their stories. It was a fantastic experience and lovely to get back on the road. But there's nothing quite like the buzz of a live show, so of course if there's something brilliant, I wouldn't turn it down."
