GMB viewers 'upset' at new format as Piers Morgan starts 30 minutes later

Not happy at Piers' later start time

Viewers of Good Morning Britain were left scratching their heads this morning (6.1.20) when the show's new format kicked in.

As many people headed back to work after the Christmas break, so did presenters Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.

But viewers were left angry when the show began with Charlotte Hawkins, with Piers and Susanna starting half an hour later at 6.30am.

The ITV daytime shake-up was caused by the Jeremy Kyle scandal and the subsequent cancellation after the tragic death of guest Steve Dymond.

The shake-up sees both GMB and This Morning given 30 minutes extra, with Charlotte, 44, taking the reins for the first half an hour of the programme from 6am.

But viewers were 'upset' at the new format, with many bemoaning the lack of Piers early in the morning.

One viewer said: "Not liking the new set-up, missing my daily fix of #piersmorgan morning routine changed as can only watch till 6.30am. Disappointed."

"What the hell has happened to #GMB?" another asked. "Was so looking forward to seeing #piersmorgan at 6am for the first rant of 2020."

But wasn't all negative.

One viewer tweeted: "@GMB really love your new format Charlotte Hawkins is perfect to start the morning off.

"She is a complete pro can we stretch it to one hour so we don’t have to put up with the argumentative trash talk from #piersmorgan and #Susanna Reida."
