Paul Brand, the UK editor for ITV News, joined Kate Garraway today to front the show.
“Welcome to the programme, and we’re talking about love matches, I’ve swiped right on Paul Brand,” Kate said at start of the show.
“I think I’m punching here Kate this morning,” Paul grinned.
“You’re really not,” she laughed.
