Good Morning Britain has announced a brand new guest presenter for the summer.
The ITV morning show, which airs from 6am to 9pm every weekday, has confirmed Richard Bacon will be taking Piers Morgan’s slot for a short stint later this month.
The journalist and broadcaster will return to GMB in August, continuing the rosta of guest presenters on the award-winning breakfast news programme.

It comes after both Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard announced a break from the show.
Ben’s last show saw him interview Olympians Galal Yafai and Emily Campbell.
