Josie Gibson has revealed her nan suggested she got a job at Lidl instead of presenting as she reflected on her incredible TV success on Friday.
The This Morning star, 36, said she plans to ‘enjoy’ her current career wins as ‘it could be here today and gone tomorrow’ as you ‘never know what’s around the corner’.
TV work: Josie Gibson has revealed her nan suggested she got a job at Lidl instead of presenting as she reflected on her incredible TV success on Friday
She told The Sun of her recent career progression: ‘It was only a few years ago that my nan suggested I apply for a job at Lidl because they are good payers.
‘I think something has always had my back, I don’t know what it is. I suppose I’m quite religious.
‘Then again, you don’t know what’s around the corner — it could be here today and gone tomorrow, so you’ve got to enjoy it.
Star: It comes after Josie was widely praised by fans last year when she took over from Holly Willoughby due to sickness at the last minute, to present This Morning with Phillip Schofield
‘My family have been my biggest fans and supporters of all. I’ve got a massive family and I think I’ve received a message from them all, and I haven’t been able to get back to each one.’
In the interview Josie, who has slimmed from a size 20 to size 14, also told how feels more body-confident and sexier after losing weight.
Her new goal is to try and fit into her size 14 jeans again after indulging over Christmas but says she’ll be working out lots instead of restricting her diet.
She also dished on her love life, saying she would like to start dating again but is too busy working and looking after her son Reggie, three.
It comes after last month, Josie made her co-hosting debut alongside Phillip on This Morning, after being called up at the very last minute by standing in for tummy bug-stricken Holly, 40, for three days.
Viewers swiftly demanded that she become a permanent fixture on the show.

The star, who became an instant fan-favourite – admitted that she cried following her anchoring debut, after being ‘showered with love’.
Josie admitted: ‘Social media can be a very dark place. But yesterday I was showered with love. It’s really embarrassing, but I had a good cry for about half an hour!’
Phil asked Josie if she had cried tears of ‘relief’, and she admitted: ‘It was just so emotional.
‘It was a really big thing to be sat here with you yesterday, and to have all those lovely messages. I can’t thank you guys at home enough.’
