That’s a very good point about when Piers moves on from the show. I don’t think it’s likely anytime soon, but is there any info anywhere of how the show rates on a Thursday and Friday? I certainly don’t bother with it those days.

It’s quite funny how they are basically broadcasting two different shows, the Piers led on, and then one with known TV nice guy Ben.

I think Fridays tend to be lower, but that’s because it’s a Friday. Thursdays seem to be not significantly different.

They need an outspoken female to work against Ben on the non-Piers days, so they keep that dynamic. Kate Garraway isn’t it.

Katie Hopkins? Or is that too much?


Hopkins is vile, ITV wouldn’t touch her with a barge pole

The Ben and Kate combo works for Fridays because it’s more light hearted but I do wonder if Ben will eventually move on from GMB given his other TV commitments

If only ITV Daytime had a programme featuring a rotating panel of outspoken females, many of whom are experienced journalists and presenters.

If that was their agenda they may not need to look far.


They wouldn’t all work, but maybe Janet Street Porter ? Very Happy

They’d never go for Hopkins in a million years. Piers, for all his bluster and ranting, still manages a decent degree of political impartiality. I couldn’t tell you which way I think he votes because I’ve no idea.

JSP would be... interesting. Out of all of the Loose Women, Jane Moore would be probably most likely (although nowhere near as controversial).
I love lamp
