"We're actually having an extraordinary thing happen next week," Piers told GMB viewers.

"Susanna, Hilary and I are actually going to have a week off. We're going to have half term off next week.

"Even though of course there is no half term."

Piers claimed that he and his two co-hosts have been the only presenters to work Monday to Thursday throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

"It's been a long old haul hasn't it," he added.

When asked how he plans to spend his time off, the host joked: "I'm going to go upstairs in my top room and have a lovely half term week."

Who hit Piers' car?

Susanna then cheekily teased Piers about his Aston Martin.

"Are you taking time off so that you can launch a full investigation into who whacked the back of your car?" she quipped.

Earlier this week, Piers revealed that somebody in the ITV car park had driven into his vehicle.

He said: "The rear light got smashed and I have no idea how it happened other than I park my car next to somebody else's car here.

"It's only one other person's car, and it didn't happen at home because I park it next to the pavement."

On today's show, Susanna joked that perhaps her assistant had collided into Piers' car.

But Piers was having none of it as Susanna told her co-star: "I'm sure people will play the world's smallest violin for you."

Good Morning Britain is on ITV, weekdays at 6am.
