Ben Shephard replaces Piers Morgan on GMB’s first Monday since sudden exit

Good Morning Britain viewers saw Ben Shephard replace Piers Morgan for the first Monday since he abrupt quit the show last week.

Piers' exit was announced last week after he made controversial comments about Meghan Markle after her interview with US TV host Oprah Winfrey on CBS.

While Piers' permanent replacement is yet to be announced, Ben appeared on the show on Monday morning alongside usual presenter Susanna Reid.

The pair usually only present with each other on Thursdays.

Ben's appearance on the show divided viewers this morning, as fans took to social media to share their thoughts on the pairing.

One posted: "Ben and Susanna presenting this Monday morning, truly truly brilliant."

Another added: "Wow Ben and Susanna presenting together on a Monday, Yipeeee, I'm hoping its Ben thats the replacement for Piers, if it is, its made my Day. Therapeutic Thursday on a Monday. Truly brilliant. Best TV couple on TV Ben, Susanna."

A third chipped in: "Love seeing Susanna and Ben on the show today! Both of them are a breath of fresh air and it’s so hear her actually speak without someone shouting."

However, a fourth swiped: "Another one sided point of view show, what is showbiz Ben doing there today?"
