When Jeremy has previously co-hosted Good Morning Britain not all viewers were impressed with some accusing him of being too "shouty" and "obnoxious".

However others thought he made a good stand-in for Piers as he wasn't afraid to stand-up to politicians or ask tough questions of their guests.

Others enjoyed his chemistry with co-host Kate Garraway.
