Good Morning Britain first came back to our screens back in April 2014. Originally, it was launched in 1983 but they decided to relaunch it to take over the Daybreak spot after it was cancelled. It is shown every single morning from 6am up until 8.30am on ITV.
We all absolutely love watching this television show, don’t we? There’s nothing that gets you through a morning better than this little duo. We do understand their struggle when the pair of them have to be up so early just to entertain us. How are people that awake so early in the morning? They are definitely really good at their jobs because they get all of us up and ready before our working day starts.
Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan are the current presenters for the hit day time TV show Good Morning Britain. But, there are some things that you don’t know about these two and the show they present!
Here are 13 things that you didn’t know about Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid… some of these are extremely interesting!
1. Piers Morgan’s controversy has managed to make the headlines repeatedly, but this actually caused some people appearing on the show to pull out last minute
Following the American election and with Donald J. Trump being named as President Of The United States, there was major media controversy. However, it was Piers Morgan’s responses to the election that upset a LOT of different people. In the January of 2017, Ewan McGregor refused to appear on the show following the comments that Piers made criticising the ‘rabid feminists’ protesting Trump. These women protesting were actually fighting for something that they believed in. However, they were quickly dismissed by Piers Morgan when he described them as ‘rabid feminists’… something that no woman fighting for equal rights should be called.
2. Piers Morgan was fired from his job working for The Mirror for publishing fake photographs
He first landed the job as editor of The Mirror, a British tabloid newspaper formerly known as The Daily Mirror, back in 1995. However, in 2004 he published some images that were fake of the alleged Iraqi prisoners that were being abused by British soldiers. He was sacked instantly for publishing fake news. There is no reason behind him feeling the need to publish fake news. He was rightly fired but still managed to make his mark on the world by becoming a celebrity.
3. Susanna Reid knows how to drink
According to co-host Piers Morgan, Susanna is pretty mental on a night out. The pair have been partying together and Piers even went as far as to say that she was like a ‘Kate Moss with dark hair’.

That’s exactly what we like to hear… a girl who can have some fun!
