After it was announced that Piers Morgan has quit Good Morning Britain, Mark Wright has weighed in on the show's future and questioned if it can survive without the outspoken star at the helm.

The presenter, who admitted it's 'tough' helping pal James Argent, showed his support for Piers, 55, and said he can't imagine the show without him.

Piers broke his silence after his exit by posting a picture alongside his late former manager on his Instagram page.

He captioned it: "Thinking of my late great manager John Ferriter tonight. He'd have told me to do the same thing."

In response, Mark, 34, took the opportunity to address Piers in the comments section.

The former TOWIE star commented: "A man with an opinion, right or wrong, he has one, I wouldn't dare say if I agree or disagree with his opinions over the years, as I may be crucified, but ultimately unlike others, Piers has one!!

"Today has proven, you can't!! It will cost you. So let's all continue to be vanilla and agree with everything we should agree with and not what we want to.

"A great loss to @gmb love him or hate him. Along with @susannareid100 he made that show what it is.

On Wednesday's programme, Susanna Reid, who previously hit back at criticism for showing off her cleavage, was joined by Ranvir Singh as she addressed the news that Piers had quit the show.

She said: "A number of people, of course, will know the news and many of you will not and will be surprised that Piers Morgan is not here this morning.

"Now, Piers and I have disagreed on many things, and that dynamic was one of the things that viewers loved about the programme.

"He is without a doubt an outspoken, challenging, opinionated, disruptive broadcaster. He has many critics and many fans."
