Good Morning Britain viewers could not contain their excitement this morning after seeing Bill Turnbull reunited with Susanna Reid after six years.

Mr Turnbull, 64, and Ms Reid, 49, launched the BBC Breakfast show when it moved to Media City in Salford and worked on it together until 2014 when she left for ITV. 

The 64-year-old, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2017, is filling in for regular host Piers Morgan while he takes some time off.

The pair hugged on screen this morning after being reunited after six years. 

He said on the programme: 'I can't believe this is really happening, it's so exciting. I feel like I'm coming home.'

Ms Reid made jokes about his full head of hair before others piped up with their own quips. Viewers commenting on social media were delighted to see the pair back together.
