GMB viewers were scratching their heads when regular hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid were replaced on today’s episode (Monday October 19).
Instead, Kate Garraway and Ranvir Singh took on presenting duties.
But viewers were confused at the main presenting duo’s absence.
Where were Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on GMB?
Last week, Piers announced that he and Susanna were taking a short break for half-term.
The pair often take a break from presenting duties, taking time off during the summer holidays.
Now they’ve done it again.
And during today’s show viewers were confused and annoyed at their absence.
@GMB Where was Piers this morning? I make a point of watching the show Monday to Wednesday but today no Piers. Not the same without him and Susanna

@GMB piers and Susannah have been appearing less and less every month … now they’ve totally disappeared.!! I’m not necessarily complaining but have you removed them under government pressure ?
