When is Piers Morgan back on GMB?

The controversial presenter waved goodbye to the ITV studios in July.

Since then, the show has seen the likes of Kate Garraway, Adil Ray and Alex Beresford taking on presenting duties.

Ahead of his summer break, Piers told viewers: “This is it – our last morning until September!”

The GMB star is set to return alongside co-host Susanna Reid on September 1.

Piers Morgan burglary in St Tropez

Despite their lavish summer break, things didn’t go exactly to plan for Piers and his family.

The Morgan’s were left devastated after thieves broke into their South of France home during a terrifying raid.

The host’s wife, Celia Walden, opened up about the horrifying experience earlier this week.

Celia revealed the thieves took a meaningful art deco ring which her husband had bought her.

Writing in the Daily Telegraph, Celia explained: “The jewellery part did sting. It still stings now, almost a week on.

“The art deco ring my husband had bought me for our fifth wedding anniversary; the vintage Pucci cuff I’d picked up a flea market in LA.”

‘Every last piece I had with me was gone’

Celia said she also had stolen a pair of earrings she’d “bought from Alfies Antique Market on the Edgware Road when my first book advance came through”.

She added: “Every last piece I had with me was gone, none of it of great value, all of it irreplaceable.”

The journalist added that the villa was “a mess” and her handbag was “upside-down on the sofa” while the box she keeps her jewellery in was “lying empty beside it.”

According to French police, the intruder had been in the home just 15 minutes earlier.

Their trip also came to an abrupt end after the clan were forced to fly home early to avoid quarantine.

Piers shared a photo of himself and sons Spencer and Bertie at the airport, writing: “Quarantine dodgers.”
