This will mark Richard's first time on the show as anchor. Speaking about replacing Piers, the TV star revealed: "I've known Piers for 30 years so sitting in for him on GMB is an excellent opportunity to gather some inside information on him which I will unhesitatingly use to wind him up afterwards. Seriously though, I'm looking forward to it immensely and after all those years on This Morning the early starts will seem like old times."
