Susanna Reid leaves GMB early for two-week break after Piers Morgan's exit drama

GOOD Morning Britain's Susanna Reid will be off screens for weeks after bowing out of the show early today.

The 50-year-old star, who usually presents on Thursdays, will not be appearing tomorrow having already started her Easter break.

The fact she would not be returning until after the Easter holidays was revealed at the end of today show by co-host Ranvir Singh.

The 43-year-old Strictly Come Dancing star said: "Right, that's it from us. You're off from tomorrow, aren't you?"

Susanna replied: "I am. I'm off for a little break at Easter."

In what sounded like a reference to the drama that has engulfed the show in recent weeks, Ranvir added: "A well-earned one, we might say."

Piers Morgan quit as Susanna's co-star rather than apologise for saying he didn't believe Meghan Markle as his ITV bosses had asked.

His shock departure came on the same day he clashed with the show's weather presenter Alex Beresford over his comments – resulting in the 55-year-old host storming off the set.

The Sun revealed last night that TV bosses now plan to build the show around Susanna as they continue to rotate their current roster of staff for the next six months.

GMB has had to put up with some rocky ratings after 55-year-old Piers left the show – having beaten rivals BBC Breakfast for the first time on his final day.
