GOOD Morning Britain host Piers Morgan is set to be replaced by Ben Shephard on the ITV show next week.
The 55-year-old announced his week-long break from the morning show alongside Susanna Reid and Dr Hilary Jones today.
Taking to Twitter to update his 7.5million followers on the news, Piers joked he would be spending his holiday "in the broom cupboard" after lockdown restrictions have forced him to stay indoors.
He wrote: "I’ll be spending it in my broom cupboard, Susanna in her kitchen & Dr Hilary in his garage."
Meanwhile, ITV have since confirmed to The Sun Online that he'll be replaced by Ben, who will co-host the show with Charlotte Hawkins and Ranvir Singh.
Piers revealed he was taking break from GMB during today's show.
When Susanna asked him if he was going anywhere nice for what should be half-term week, he joked: "I'm going upstairs. To my top room."
She also teased it would give him time to investigate who "whacked" his car light, after he accused her of smashing into his motor on yesterday's show.
The break might please PM Boris Johnson after Piers warned he'll "attack ministers" by analysing their interviews on rival channels after they boycotted his show.
Yesterday the defiant host said that GMB will be “sub-interviewing” ministers because the government is refusing to let them appear on the show.
The government stopped giving GMB interviews with ministers after a string of combative interviews with Piers.
Ministers have not appeared on the morning show for over 20 days, despite giving interviews to rivals BBC Breakfast.
