Piers, 55, has been working on GMB since 2015. He is currently on a summer break from the show, and has jetted to the south of France with his family. He has already shared a number of beautiful snapshots with his fans, including one showing a glorious sunset in Provence.

GMB stars Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid

Piers and co-star Susanna Reid's last day on GMB was on Friday. The pair will return to screens in September and in the meantime, Kate Garraway has stepped back into her presenting role. Kate was previously off-air to look after her two children while her husband Derek Draper sadly remains in intensive care in hospital.

While Piers is definitely returning after the summer, he previously told one GMB viewer that he may step down for good in 2021. After reading out a letter from the viewer who thought they heard Piers say he was leaving, the TV star clarified: "I'm not actually CJ, end of next year possibly." Susanna then joked: "Contract negotiations underway!"
