New GMB host: Susanna Reid to ‘quit’ for new show with Piers Morgan?

Could the Good Morning Britain duo end up on another channel?

GMB viewers are so desperate to know who the new host is that they’ve forgotten to question what Susanna Reid is planning.

Controversial host Piers Morgan quit the show in March following backlash over his comments regarding Meghan Markle.

Since quitting, Susanna has stuck by the show while ITV bosses scramble to find his replacement.

However, new reports are suggesting she may already be getting itchy feet.

They shared: “Piers is nigh-on impossible to replace and GMB execs accept this, but Richard has his own inimitable style.

“Like Piers, he’s a trained journalist who knows how to press guests and get a decent ‘line’ from interviewees.”

They continued: “He shoots from the hip, says what he thinks, and is a genuinely brilliant, likeable chap off air — so it’s very much a ‘watch this space’.”

What is Richard Madeley famous for?

However, despite the rumours, nothing has been confirmed yet.

Although, Richard has already teased that he would think about taking the role.

During an interview with Metro he said: “If the phone went and they said: ‘Would you come in and talk?’ of course I would talk to them.”

Richard became a household name in the late 90s when he presented This Morning on ITV between 1998 and 2001.

He later went on to have his own chat show series with wife Judy Finnegan.
