“The programme will continue powering away through the summer but we have hit the wall.

“We are going away to lie in the sunshine.

“Of course separately!

“We won’t be enjoying the sun together, those days are long gone sadly. I miss those days when we used to enjoy each other’s company.”

What have GMB viewers said?

GMB fans want Piers back.

And they’ve been very vocal with their demands on Twitter.

One wrote: “Hey Piers, I wish you were back on GMB asking the politicians about a fair pay rise for ALL NHS staff. Nurses have been stabbed in the back AGAIN.”

Another added: “@piersmorgan when are you back on GMB I can get through this pandemic without you.”

Moments later, a third tweeted: “Can’t wait till you are back on GMB it is not the same when you are not on.”

Shortly after, a fourth posted: “@piersmorgan when are you back on Gmb it’s so boring with out you on there.”

The reaction may come as a shock to Piers as viewers were petitioning to get him sacked earlier this year.

Where is Piers Morgan?

Piers is currently on holiday in the south of France with his family.

Ahead of his flight, he shared a snap of himself on Instagram with the caption: “I’m a washed up, knackered pathetic excuse for a celebrity… get me outta here.

“Bye Britain, it’s been… surreal.”

Unfortunately, it hasn’t been the best break for Piers as he’s suffered an injury.

Taking to Instagram on Monday (July 20), he revealed he’d hurt his leg.

He captioned an image showing him using crutches: “Peg-leg.

“(Nothing like tearing a tendon on Day two of a six-week holiday)”.

Get well soon, Piers!
