Piers Morgan, 56, quit his role on Good Morning Britain earlier this month after he clashed with co-host Alex Beresford over his comments to the interview Meghan Markle gave with chat show host, Oprah Winfrey. Since then, there have been plenty of names rumoured to replace Piers on the breakfast show, although, Adil has now revealed that he will be joining Susanna throughout April.

The most recent rumour for Piers’ replacement was that Susanna was going to present GMB as a solo host.

Other names thrown into the mix is Alex Beresford and Ben Shephard, who regularly co-present the programme.

However, on Saturday Adil confirmed with his Instagram followers that he was stepping in to co-host GMB.

Sharing a snap of himself sat at the GMB news desk, Adil penned: “Some news for you… I will be co-hosting @GMB throughout the whole of April Mon to Weds, staring this Monday with @kategarray and with @susannareid100 after the hols.” (sic)

He told Deadline: “Piers is a special thing. You can’t replace somebody like him.

“There is nobody like Piers, for good or bad.”

He added they have a roster of presenters who are “stepping up” and “doing more days” to help cover Piers.
