Daily ITV show This Morning will return to its original home in Liverpool for a one-off 25th anniversary special next month.

The special, to be broadcast live from the Albert Dock on Thursday October 3, will feature original hosts Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan.

The famous floating weather map will also make a return, but with original presenter Fred Talbot currently on police bail after his arrest over allegations of historic sexual abuse crimes, comedian Keith Lemon will stand in.

This Morning launched on Granada in 1988, relocating to London in 1996 with the hope of securing higher profile guests.

Madeley and Finnigan broadcast their last edition of the show in 2001. It is currently presented by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, with Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford standing in on Fridays.
