Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard replace Piers and Susanna in GMB shake-up

Good Morning Britain viewers were left scratching their heads on Monday as Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid failed to appear on the ITV breakfast show.

Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard were on presenting duty instead as the regular hosts enjoyed a half-term break with their families.

Former I'm A Celebrity contestant Kate, 53, announced on Friday that her and Ben, 45, would be filling in for Piers and Susanna on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

ITV viewers rushed to their keyboards as she wondered why Piers and Susanna were absent from their screens.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Where are Piers and Susanna?"

A second person posted: "#GMB WTF has half-term got to do with tv presenters?"

While a third viewer said: "Where's Morgan then this week??"

Piers, 55, received some backlash after criticising Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby announcement on Sunday evening.

The outspoken presenter slammed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's "cheesy" pregnancy photo as he accused them of an "attempt for more media attention".

He has criticised of the couple since they left the Royal Family and moved to America last year.

Piers tweeted the sweet black and white photograph of Harry and Meghan along with his message to his 7.7million followers.

He penned "Harry & Meghan have announced they’re pregnant and released this cheesy photo of themselves to ensure the media gives the story about their private life more prominence – in their latest courageous effort to stop the same media focusing on their private life."

When one of his followers said the announcement was going to make Monday's GMB "unbearable", Piers responded: "Relax Janine, I’m off for a week."

Kate was left red-faced during Monday's show as her mobile phone went off while she was live on air.

The mother of two was talking about what was coming up on the show when her phone made a noise.

Ben interrupted Kate to ask: "Any chance you can turn your phone off?"

Ever the professional, Kate continued: "Your watching Good Morning Britain on ITV. I'm just going to pop this on silent.

Ben, 45, found the funny side and asked his close friend if it was Mick the milkman on the phone.

He joked: "Is it Mick the milkman on the phone?"

ate replied: "Mick's probably at home like stop it, my wife is going to leave me."

Tipping Point host Ben couldn't help but bring up Kate's milkman again after she accidentally made an innuendo about him last week.
