Saw a few minutes of today’s show, Richard Bacon and Susanna don’t seem to have very much chemistry IMO. Him and Adil Ray are perfectly fine presenters, but neither seem to be the next Piers.

Hopefully some new guest presenters will pop up over the summer.


Adil or Richard would be a better replacement for Ben rather than Piers.

Would anyone want to be the next Piers?

And is that him gone till September?


No, I think Piers and Susanna have one more week to go,


Richard Madely will hopefully make a summer return. Eamonn will Be On This Morning but; ciukd we see Alastair Stewart do a stint? That would be good.

You can see why ITV like Piers Morgan - articles about Duchess of Suffolk visitng Wimbledon use his comments to fill out the articles. Everytime he comments on things and gets quoted like that is excellent publicity for GMB.

As much as I don't like Morgan's views, he is the main reason GMB is still going. Take him off-air and the show resorts to GMTV style cheesiness.


Indeed and that's what will happen when him and Susanna head off on their break. He commented last September when he got back about the state of the show while he was away.

That said, the show's numbers do seem OK when Piers isn't there (excluding school holidays).

I saw Andrew Castle on BBC news this morning. I didn’t particularly like him on GMTV - I thought at the time he was too newsy.

God, that shows how low GMTV set the bar.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

Gmtv was never the same after Eamonn left. Whatever your opinion of him, he was the glue that held the show together. Him and Fiona were the early morning equivalent of Richard and Judy, as we're John and Penny. Andrew was OK as second/relief presenter, but didn't have the charisma or personality for the number 1 job and had no chemistry with Fiona. He was good with Kate though, just not Fiona. He wasn't as bad as Ben was with Fiona, those two looked like mother and son. I half expected Ben to sit on Fiona's lap sometimes. Andrew didn't really develop a consistent personality until 2009 when Emma Crosby started and GMTV adopted a more upmarket tone. Now 10 years later though, maybe Andrew would suit breakfast telly more and it's be good to have an old face on for nostalgia over the summer. If Ben Shepherd can be more bearable in 2019 than he was 10 years ago, then anyone can!

Even if that’s true he’s quite full of himself to make the comment and poor manners to dis your own show.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

He should stick with the tennis not enter breakfast tv.

Erm, that ship already sailed in the year 2000...
I'm still a European.

During the campaign for the European parliamentary elections that took place on 23 May 2019, Ofcom received a complaint that an interview with a European parliamentary candidate was not balanced1. In assessing this complaint, we identified four editorially-linked programmes that included interviews with candidates contesting the European parliamentary elections in the South West electoral region.

However, in the programmes broadcast on 26 April 2019 and 30 April 2019, the list of parties contesting the South West electoral region included the following seven parties:

On these two occasions the lists as broadcast did not include the following other party and independent candidates contesting the South West electoral region...
