It's not the same without you, you're the best breakfast and news presenter in the UK, you challenge and ask the right questions everything us public want to know and the answers we want to hear. Please carry on campaigning for us you're the best."
GMB star Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid
Piers, 55, is currently enjoying a summer break from Good Morning Britain. The father-of-four has jetted to the south of France, and has already been sharing enviable snapshots from his holiday.
The TV presenter and his co-star Susanna Reid are scheduled to return to GMB in September. In the interim, colleague Kate Garraway has stepped back into her presenting role on the show. She was previously off-air to care for her two children while her husband Derek Draper sadly remains in intensive care in hospital.
