Piers Morgan to guest host Good Morning Britain

Piers Morgan will guest host 'Good Morning Britain' in April.

The former 'Britain's Got Talent' judge will step in to present the ITV weekday programme from April 13 to April 17 alongside regular host Susanna Reid while Ben Shephard is away, as fellow host Charlotte Hawkins is still on maternity leave.

The popular breakfast show - which launched last year - airs between 6am and 8.30am, although Piers joked the early mornings should not be a problem for him because he has a young daughter, Elise, who frequently wakes him up at the crack of dawn.

He 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."

The father-of-four previously had a three-year stint as the host of CNN evening show 'Piers Morgan Live' although it ended in March 2014 due to poor ratings.

In the UK, Piers has become a familiar face with his series 'Piers Morgan's Life Stories', now on its 12th series, which has seen him conduct in-depth interviews with stars including Sir Elton John, Joan Collins and Richard Branson.
