It's been an exciting 12 months for This Morning as the show recently celebrated their 30th birthday. The morning programme first aired on 3 October in 1988 when it was filmed in Liverpool's Albert Dock, and has since gone on to win several accolades. "This Morning on Sunday will be an unmissable package of the week's most talked about moments on and off TV," This Morning editor Martin Frizell said in a statement. "It will be the best of This Morning rolled into one perfectly formed hour and will continue its warm, inclusive, intelligent and fun tone." Emma Gormley, Managing Director for ITV Studios Daytime, added: "2018 was an amazing year for This Morning, celebrating its 30th birthday, record viewing figures and winning a BAFTA, so this new Sunday commission is a brilliant start to 2019."
