One wrote: “Won’t be winning that next year without Piers.”

Another posted: “Well done. No disrespect to any of the other presenters but Piers is a huge part of why you won this award.”

A third chipped in: “Just a shame Piers isn’t there anymore, probably never win again.”

When did Piers leave GMB?

Piers, 56, exited the popular morning show back in March. The move came after a heated on-air debate with colleague Alex Beresford about Meghan Markle.

At the time the former tabloid editor had been very vocal on his opinions regarding Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Piers said he ‘didn’t believe a word’ that Meghan said after the duchess said she felt suicidal but claimed she didn’t receive help from the palace.

This sparked outrage among viewers.

He announced he was leaving GMB on March 9 after Ofcom received more than 41,000 complaints about his on-screen rant about the Duchess of Sussex.

One complaint reportedly came from Meghan herself.

During the awards ceremony, Susanna also won a second trophy – Celebrity Personality of the Year.

The NRTA account tweeted: “Congratulations to Susanna Reid on winning Celebrity Personality of the Year sponsored by Danielle Styles Boutique at the 10th National Reality TV Awards.”

A delighted Susanna replied: “Thank you Reality TV Awards.”
