From winning Midday money with Richard and Judy to discussing what she's making happen in Emmerdale with Phil and Holly - This Morning has certainly evolved for producer Kate Oates.
She said: "It was a big day! And now I’m here, hooray. Who would have thought it?"
It has been a busy old time on Emmerdale of late and you can attribute that non-stop action in part to Kate, who loves to make things exciting.
Kate explained: "The pacing of the stories is something that is paramount really when you’re doing this kind of job. When I did take over last year I wanted to make sure that those big moments were there."
For Kate, the village itself plays a huge role in the show.
"We have a village – Emmerdale is so beautiful," she said.
"Whenever I go to the village, you look around and think: 'this is amazing'. I wanted to use the village as much as I can."
In 2014 a few familiar faces will be returning to the show including Verity Rushworth, who played Donna Windsor-Dingle.
And, of course, the hard-hitting storylines will continue.
Kate said: "We'll be looking at HIV in a straight, white married woman. For soap fans, the last time they would have seen this was with EastEnders Mark Fowler. Things have changed so dramatically I wanted to tell a story that informed people properly. I wanted to show people that their assumptions of HIV could be wrong.
"Val shares the stigmas that I want to bust through – she’s a woman of a certain generation."
Kate closed her interview by saying: "I just want this coming year to be huge for us."
