On Wednesday’s show, the pair told some of their stories with their families’ permission after the grim milestone was hit.
Piers told viewers: “It’s just gone eight o’clock and latest official Government figures show we passed a horrendous milestone in this country.
“100,000 people have now died with coronavirus in the UK.”
What did Piers and Susanna say on GMB?
Susanna continued: “This morning, we pay tribute to all of those who have died and to those who have been left behind.
“With their families’ permission, here are just some of their stories.”
Meanwhile, photos of those who have lost their lives were shown behind Piers and Susanna.
Susanna explained among the deaths was a taxi driver who had been spat at by a customer, who claimed he had coronavirus.
He died just weeks later.
They also paid tribute to a former NHS nurse, who lived through World War Two and survived bombing and served as a Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes officer.
