Piers Morgan declares "I need a break" after seeing what he'll look like in 20 years

The GMB host is off for the summer

Whatever you think of Piers Morgan, he sure does know how to make his fans laugh.

On Tuesday, the Good Morning Britain tried out a new app that ages you, sharing the results with his 6.7million Twitter followers and joking: "I need a break."

The 54-year-old looks closer to 74 in the photo, and many found it hilarious. One tweeted: "Lol!! You definitely need a break.🤣🤣😂😂." A second joked: "You look no different 😂😂."

A third laughed: "What’s your secret? Have you started moisturising?" One more suggested all his complaining was ageing him, saying: "You wanna stop moaning about Arsenal!"

A few offered some elderly-Piers lookalikes, with one follower suggesting: "You look like Michael Burke." Another wrote: "Could Parkinson be your brother?" While a third added: "Micheal Winner is back from the dead!"

Many, er, lesser Piers fans also jumped on the chance to tell him to take all the time he needs. One wrote: "You need a break? WE need a break from YOU! Take the next 20yrs off!!!!!"

A long break... preferably retirement.

A second added: "Please take a permanent one!" While a third joked: "A long break... preferably retirement."

It wasn't totally a joke, as the dad-of-four confirmed he is now taking time off his GMB role, along with his co-host, Susanna Reid.

He retweeted a message from Susanna on Wednesday morning, that read: "It’s a wrap! That’s all from @piersmorgan & me ‘til September. Happy summer."

The 48-year-old added that the ITV morning show would continue without them, tweeting: "@GMB back tomorrow from 6am."

Many were sad about the news, with one writing: "Oh no, Good Morning Britain is going be so boring while you gone, I am yawning already 🤣."

Another tweeted: "It's going to be a very long boring summer without you guys on every morning!! Enjoy and hurry back!! x." A third wished them the best, writing: "Enjoy your holiday."

Some were happier about the news, with one tweeting: "GMB's going to be watchable again for a bit then." A second wrote: "Thank goodness. I can watch ITV in the mornings again. Piers Morgan and his loud unkind behaviour sent me elsewhere."

A third told Susanna: "Sad to be losing you. Glad to be losing him."
