There’s not many times the British public are on the side of controversial Good Morning Britain presenter, Piers Morgan.

But in an unexpected turn of events, viewers have now been pleading the telly star to return from holiday after branding GMB stand-in Jeremy Kyle ‘loud and annoying’.

But while the dad-of-four quickly got stuck into his new role and seemed to be enjoying his first day chatting about cheerleading and debating Brexit’s ‘divorce bill’ – fans of the ITV breakfast show weren’t exactly impressed.

Another said: ‘Jeremy Kyle is the same on #gmb as he is on #jeremykyle Loud and sodding annoying.’

A third agreed: ‘@GMB seriously Jeremy Kyle, BBC it is then #bringback Piers.’

While a fourth added: ‘Jeremy Kyle is a Poundland Morgan. @piersmorgan is the best.’

Another then added: ‘Surely, if Jeremy Kyle is presenting Good Morning Britain then we need Graham and the aftercare team as well.’

Jeremy is one of a few presenters to step in for Piers and Susanna while they take their annual summer break with other including Richard Madeley and This Morning favourite Eamonn Holmes.
