Of course, the US politician hasn't actually joined the show's roster, but clearly team GMB find this week's most popular meme – a photo of Mr Sanders on a folding chair at Joe Biden's inauguration wearing a face mask and mittens – as funny as the rest of us.

"Omg! [laughing emoji] For a second I was seriously looking!" Another added: "This is good!" Many more simply left crying face emojis.

Earlier on Friday, Piers Morgan even shared a hilarious photo of Bernie sitting between himself and his co-host Susanna Reid, adding the caption: "Feel the @gmb Bern."

Again, social media users were quick to comment on the snap.

"Name a more iconic trio," replied one. 

Piers shared a photo on his own 

"He's a hero for wearing those mitts!" said another, with a third writing: "That's definitely one of the best ones."

Thankfully Piers was able to end a week of hosting duties on a high.

On Wednesday, the famous dad expressed his sadness following the death of a beloved guest. Doris Hobday, one of UK's oldest living twins, passed away on 5 January at the age of 96 after contracting coronavirus.

Sharing the sad news with viewers on Wednesday, a visibly-upset Piers said: "We start with some sad news we were made aware of a few days ago."

"They bought such a ray of sunshine to our lives during the first wave of this pandemic with their infectious humour, great laugh, and cheekiness. They were a wonderful duo," he added.
