It’s only been a few weeks since Piers Morgan enjoyed a two-week absence from Good Morning Britain to go on holiday in the US, but the TV presenter is already preparing to take another extended break from the show. Along with his co-host Susanna Reid, Piers is expected to take a lengthy break from presenting duties starting 5 April.
