Piers Morgan confirms he'll miss GMB all week – as confused viewers wake up to Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard

PIERS Morgan last night revealed he'll be away from Good Morning Britain all week – but fans who missed the message were left confused when they woke up.

The tenacious host and co-star Susanna Reid are on holiday for half-term week, with Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard filling in.

Last night Piers received a heavy backlash after criticising Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby announcement.

When one of his followers said it was going to make today's GMB "unbearable", Piers responded: "Relax Janine, I’m off for a week."

However, not everyone spotted it and some tweeted their confusion this morning.

One posted: "where is @Piers ???? Has he got more time off already???"

Another said: "Where are you today Piers? No GMB ??"

Yesterday Piers slammed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's "cheesy" pregnancy photo as he accused them of an "attempt for more media attention".

The journalist has been a high profile critic of the couple since they left the Royal Family and moved to the US.


Piers' tweet was liked and retweeted thousands of times in a matter of minutes as he took aim at the couple over their baby announcement on Valentine's Day.

The couple had shared a black and white picture of themselves under a tree, with Harry resting his hand on Meghan's head as she cradles her bump.

The 55-year-old TV host tweeted the picture along with his message to his 7.7million followers as he blasted the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

"Harry & Meghan have announced they’re pregnant and released this cheesy photo of themselves to ensure the media gives the story about their private life more prominence – in their latest courageous effort to stop the same media focusing on their private life," he wrote.

Piers has regularly gone after the couple with rants and mocking jibes since they left the Royals to forge their own path at the start of 2020.

And just days ago he urged The Queen to permanently strip Prince Harry of his military titles because he cannot be an "absentee armchair general".

His latest attack came as Harry and Meghan told fans that their son Archie was going to be a big brother as they are expecting their second child.

"We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother," a spokesman for the couple said.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child."
