Susanna Reid gives update on Piers Morgan’s Good Morning Britain replacement

It's nearly been seven months!

Susanna Reid has revealed that the process for finding a replacement for Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain has been a ‘slow’ one.

The former host dramatically quit the ITV programme in March, following a spat with weatherman Alex Beresford.

Since then, Susanna has appeared alongside a number of famous faces.

Susanna Reid offers update on Piers Morgan’s replacement

However, the morning show is yet to find a worthy replacement for Piers.

In his latest column for the Daily Mail, Piers confirmed the news after bumping into Susanna at a recent event.

The pair attended the TRIC Awards last month.

The event also marked a special reunion for the former colleagues.

Piers, 56, recalled: “It was the first time we’d seen each other since that dramatic day back in March when I departed Good Morning Britain.

“‘Oh my God, I think I’m going to cry!’ she exclaimed. ‘Well, divorces are emotional things,’ I laughed.”

The pair spent their time “hugging and chatting”, before Susanna updated Piers on his replacement.

And it’s proving difficult for bosses at ITV.

He added: “‘How’s the campaign to replace me going?’ I asked. ‘Slowly,’ she replied. ‘Turns out there aren’t many Piers Morgans around… which is probably a huge relief for some people.'”

What has Susanna said in the past?

Susanna, 50, recently opened up on her former co-host Piers.

Speaking in an interview with Weekend magazine, the star gave a definitive answer to a question about his return.

She shared: “He’s not left ITV – he’s still doing Life Stories. But no, he won’t be back on the GMB sofa.”
