The break follows shortly after a tumultuous few weeks for the ITV programme.

Earlier this month, Piers stormed out of the studio following a row about Meghan Markle.

Meanwhile, the day after he clashed with Alex Beresford, Susanna told viewers Piers would no longer be appearing on the show.

At the time, she said: “Piers has decided to leave the programme. Some of you may cheer and others will boo.

“He has been my presenting partner for more than five years and during Brexit and the pandemic and other issues he has been a voice for many of you, and a voice that many of you have railed against.

“It is certainly going to be very different but shows go on and so on we go.”

Piers Morgan addresses Susanna Reid’s ‘frosty’ statement

Over the weekend, Piers finally broke his silence on his relationship with Susanna.

Writing in the Mail, Piers quipped that his ex Marion Shalloe spoke about him “more fondly” than his former colleague.

He said: “Jeez, even my real ex-wife talks more fondly about me than that (and, in fact, did so overnight in a very supportive message).

“I got an instant flurry of new texts from bemused friends asking if we’d fallen out.”

Piers explained that the pair hadn’t fallen out, but he thought Susanna felt “angry and sad” at him leaving amid the show’s continued ratings success.

He also wondered if she was “concerned for her own future” and “fearful of troll abuse” for supporting him.
