Susanna Reid was not working on GMB today after being reduced to tears by the exit of Piers Morgan.
Susanna Reid not on GMB today after being upset over Piers leaving: She was replaced this morning by Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway. She would normally present today’s program with Shephard after being with Morgan Monday to Wednesday. However, just a day after paying tribute to Morgan she was absent from the show.
As yesterday’s show opened Reid said “Some of you may cheer and others will boo, he has been my presenting partner Monday to Wednesday for more than five years. During Brexit and the pandemic and other issues, he has been a voice for many of you and a voice that many of you have railed against. It is certainly going to be very different but shows go on and so on we go.”
According to reports she allegedly cried after Morgan’s dramatic resignation. He left after being asked by the broadcaster to make a public apology over his comments regarding Meghan Markle. Of the 41,000 complaints Ofcom received, one was from the Duchess herself, who said she was concerned his comments would affect people suffering from mental health issues.
Morgan shared a quote from Winston Churchill on his Twitter account which read “Some people’s idea of free speech is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage.”
