Morning Live stars Gethin Jones and Kym Marsh have celebrated their first ever night socialising together after presenting 102 episodes.
The pair began hosting the BBC One show during the pandemic back in October, and raised a glass after finally getting the chance to meet outside of work.
Gethin posted a picture of the pair holding a glass of wine each with his followers on Instagram.
The presenters also clutched hot water bottles as they battled the cold and wore face coverings.
Gethin looked back at a ‘tough year’ for everyone, and thanked the crew that helped put the show together in the post.
‘102 shows later, we finally see each other socially!’ he wrote.

‘So many have adapted to this new world of working, it was nice to have a beer with my “on-air” partner.’
Gethin went on to say: ‘We talked about how grateful we were to go to work every day and how lucky we are to be surrounded by the on and off screen ML family.
‘It’s been a tough year for so many but today we’re counting our blessings. Cheers to all of you.’
Morning Live kicked off in October with strong ratings, bringing us a One Show-style magazine programme – only 10 hours earlier and set in a 60s-style living room.
The show was launched to rival ITV morning shows Good Morning Britain and Lorraine. While the programme was initially intended to run for eight weeks, the show has become a regular fixture on the channel.
Morning Live airs weekdays at 9.15am on BBC One.
