GMB viewers have called for Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan to return early from their half-term break.
The presenters have taken time off during half term, and they’ve left co-stars Kate Garraway and Ranvir Singh in charge for the time being.
Sadly for the pair, they haven’t quite managed to convince viewers that there’s as much chemistry between them as there is between Piers and Susanna.
So much so in fact, that some viewers headed to social media on Wednesday (October 21) to call for the pair to be replaced after a succession of ‘awkward’ interviews.
During an interview with Labour MP Lisa Nandy, Kate and Ranvir were criticised for not letting the politician speak.
What did GMB viewers say?
Viewers took to Twitter to question the relationship between Kate and Ranvir.
Some called out their “lack of chemistry” – odd as they are good friends. Others suggested Ranvir may be over-stretching herself with her Strictly duties.
Others were desperate for Piers to return to his seat.

Do Kate and Ranvir even like each other. Seems to be a lot of tension and cutting each other off. #gmb

Not sure about the chemistry between the Kate and Ranvir, but it’s refreshing to see some balance from presenters. Normally it’s just 100% anti-Govt #gmb

Wondering the same. Ranvir clutching the mug for dear life and expressions on her face seem tense

Where are GMB stars Piers and Susanna?
The sudden change may have left some viewers upset about their absence, but there was a good reason for this switch-up.
Piers, 55, and Susanna, 49, often take breaks when it comes to the summer holidays. Or in this case, October half-term.
Also on the regular replacement rota are Adil Ray, Sean Fletcher and Alex Beresford and of course Thursday and Friday host Ben Shephard.
What else is happening on ITV Daytime this week?
It’s not just Piers and Susanna who take a step back during half-time.
Regular This Morning presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby have also put their feet up at home while Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford fill in for them.
Meanwhile on Lorraine, Christine Lampard has settled into the presenter’s chair.
