Hovertravel welcomes ITV’s This Morning
This Morning’s resident therapists, Nik and Eva Speakman visited Hovertravel as part of their biggest challenge yet.
The Speakmans had planned to whisk Nicola off the island in a helicopter but low cloud cover forced the ITV production team to change their plans.
Hovertravel offered to help and hosted the TV crew at their Ryde terminal, before speeding Nicola across the Solent to a successful conclusion of this therapy segment. Filming Nicola as she boarded, on the journey over and after she landed on the mainland, gave the producers the exciting live coverage they needed and added to the drama of the segment in one of the most watched daytime TV shows.
Hovertravel was thanked live on air by presenters Philip Scofield and Holly Willoughby, with the production team adding: “Thank you so much for being so helpful. It went very smoothly, and we massively appreciate your help.”
