Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan is set to be replaced by the BBC’s Bill Turnbull amid his battle with prostate cancer.

The 64-year-old presenter said that he is ‘very excited’ to be reunited with Susanna Reid on the show, and has promised not to be as opinionated as Piers Morgan, reports Mirror Online.

Bill and Susanna worked together on BBC Breakfast before Susanna left for ITV in 2014.

Now the two presenters are set to work together at the end of February, when Piers takes some time off.

Bill, who quit BBC Breakfast in 2016, has been working on Classic FM, and the move marks his return to live breakfast TV.

He told Mirror Online: “I’m thrilled to be working with Susanna again and really looking forward to being on Good Morning Britain.

“We didn’t work together long enough and we got on so well. I was sad when she left at short notice. So for her to ask me to sit alongside her is very exciting.

“I’m in two minds about the early mornings. On one hand, it’s great to be back doing live television.

"The other part of me thinks: ‘What on earth am I doing? Having sworn never to do breakfast television again!’

“But here I am doing it and it’s only in the short term.”

Insiders have said that if the temporary stint on GMB goes well, the guest host could be offered more shifts with Susanna.

Bill’s incurable cancer has spread to his bones but late last year the father-of-three said he has a .fair old time to live’.

He added: “You hope for a couple of years but I really don’t think in terms of how long I’ve got left.”
