Piers Morgan celebrates as Good Morning Britain achieves highest rated ITV show

The presenter couldn't contain his excitement

Piers Morgan has shared his delight after Good Morning Britain became the highest rated ITV show for the first time ever.

The controversial presenter and co-host Susanna Reid beat the likes of This Morning’s Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield to the top spot.

Sharing the news with his 1.1million Instagram followers, Piers appeared ecstatic as he posted a snap of himself and Susanna sitting behind the morning show desk.

The 55-year-old exclaimed: “BREAKING: For the first time ever, ⁦‪@gmb‬⁩ was ITV’s highest rated show (25.5% audience share) yesterday across the whole day/night.

“Thanks for watching and thanks to our brilliant editorial and production teams for all they’ve done during this pandemic.”

The news will no doubt come as a relief to Piers, who has been the subject of 4,000 Ofcom complaints so far this year.

No nonsense Piers

Piers had drawn a fair bit of controversy for his confrontational style of presenting during the global pandemic.

He had wracked up Ofcom complaints after no-holds-barred interviews with MPs Helen Whately and Tobias Ellwood.

But the defiant host has vowed to continue grilling the government in a tough way.
