Piers to join Su­sanna on ITV break­fast sofa GOOD MOR­GAN BRI­TAIN!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

PIERS Mor­gan is to join the

team along­side host Su­sanna Reid.

The for­mer tabloid editor and TV pre­sen­ter will next month join sexy Su­sanna three days a week on the ITV break­fast show.

He said: “I am very ex­cited at the prospect of wak­ing up at 3am ev­ery morn­ing, and even more ex­cited by the thought of how an­noy­ing Su­sanna is go­ing to find me af­ter a few months.

“Good Morn­ing Bri­tain is a great show with a ter­rific team on and off screen. I’m look­ing for­ward to it enor­mously.”

The 50-year-old cur­rently presents Piers Mor­gan’s Life Sto­ries on ITV. Be­tween 2011 and 2014 he hosted Piers Mor­gan Live on CNN in Amer­ica.

Piers will step into the shoes of Ben Shephard, who has co-hosted the show on weekday morn­ings since April last year.

This will not be Piers’ first time on Good Morn­ing Bri­tain – in April he filled in for a week as guest pre­sen­ter when Ben was on hol­i­day. He was crit­i­cised by Of­com for laugh­ing as an in­ter­vie­wee used the F-word live on air. UP FOR IT: Piers (top) will rise early

to join Su­sanna

Of­com de­cided not to take ac­tion against the pro­gramme as Piers and Su­sanna and Reid had quickly apol­o­gised.

Piers was also due to ap­pear in July, but was dropped from the show’s sched­ule be­cause he was in an ad­vert for the Na­tional Lottery.

As Good Morn­ing Bri­tain is clas­si­fied as a news and cur­rent af­fairs pro­gramme, pre­sen­ters are pro­hib­ited from ap­pear­ing in paid ad cam­paigns.
