Piers Morgan will join Susanna Reid and the rest of the Good Morning Britain team as a main presenter for a week in April.

Covering for Ben Shephard from 13 - 17 April, it marks a return for Morgan to British television.

Morgan said: "I’m very excited to be joining Susanna and the GMB team for a week.

"Thanks to my 3-year-old daughter’s sleeping pattern, I’ve been waking up at 4am for quite a while now. So the early starts shouldn’t present any problem."

Morgan teased his followers on Twitter by alluding to the anticipated announcement of Jeremy Clarkson's sacking by the BBC.

Morgan then tweeted the news that Clarkson has officially been sacked by the BBC, before returning to his own announcement that he would be guest-hosting Good Morning Britain.


He wrote in a follow-up tweet: "This doesn't prevent me doing Top Gear as well, obviously."
