Has Piers taken things one step too far for producers and been kicked off the show?

Controversial TV presenter Piers Morgan is known for his outrageous comments and winding up his co-presenter Susanna Reid. Has he taken this too far and finally been booted off Good Morning Britain? No, of course not. 

But the nation's favourite TV presenter Eamonn Holmes will be returning to breakfast TV and replacing Piers on GMB over the Easter bank holiday whilst he enjoys some time off.

Eamonn, who presented GMTV for 12 years and Sunrise for 11 years, will trade in the morning lie-ins to join the GMB team. 

During his four days on the show, he will be reunited with two of his past on screen partners, Kate Garraway and Charlotte Hawkins, whilst Susanna Reid will also be enjoying some time away from the GMB sofa. 

Eamonn said: "After the last four months of lie-ins, I feel refreshed and my hips have healed well.

"Breakfast TV is what I'm best known for so it's nice to be back doing a short spell of early starts and to be back at my old stomping ground.”

Eamonn Holmes will be presenting GMB on ITV for four days over Easter (Monday 10th - Thursday 13th April) whilst Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan are on holiday.
