#GMB: Susanna Reid absence explained as ITV host replaced in show shake-up

Susanna Reid normally stays at the helm of GMB each weekday apart from Friday. The ITV host tends to present the show with Piers on Monday to Wednesday and then tackles presenting duties alongside the likes of Ben Shephard on Thursdays. However, today's episode of GMB saw both Susanna and Piers replaced as Kate Garraway returned to take on the main role with newsreader Alex Beresford in tow.

Introducing the pair once the show had got underway today, Alex could barely hide his excitement to be back in the presenters' seat in Ben and Susanna's absence.

"Good morning, Britain," Alex began. "It's half past six and welcome to the programme, it's good to be back."

"It's lovely to be here, isn't it?" Kate excitedly responded. "It's very, very nice."

The pair then explained they weren't sat close to each other as the camera would have viewers believe but instead that they were "far away" from one another.
