Susanna Reid jokes Piers Morgan hasn’t returned to Good Morning Britain because he’s ‘barely speaking to her’

SUSANNA Reid joked Piers Morgan hasn't returned to Good Morning Britain because he's 'barely speaking to her'.

The 54-year-old has been away from the ITV show since before the Easter Holidays, with Richard Madeley standing in for him this week.

Addressing Piers' ongoing absence, Susanna said this morning: "I am of course back on the programme as you can see, lots of people wondering where Piers Morgan is this morning."

Turning to co-host Richard, 62, she added: "But it's absolutely lovely having you here looking after me this week."

Susanna, 49, then gave viewers a 'clue' why her co-star wasn't sat beside her this week, blaming the football results at the weekend.

She continued: "People have been asking 'why isn't Piers here?' and I have been giving people a clue on Twitter.

"If you look at our Whats app chat, this is from Sunday, I said to Piers 'big day today' as Crystal Palace travelled to Arsenal.

"He said 'huge', and one minute after the game finished I replied 'huge'."

As viewers will know, Piers is a die-hard Arsenal fan, while Susanna's allegiance is with Crystal Palace as she is dating the club's part-owner and chairman Steve Parish.

She said: "I'd just like to remind you of the score line, Crystal Palace 3, Arsenal 2.

"And then he said 'I can't talk to you right now I'm too enraged' and he's barely spoken to me since!"

Viewers took to the comments section to tell Susanna to continue to rub salt in Piers' wound when he does eventually return to the show.

One wrote: "You got to wear your Crystal Palace shirt on Piers’ return. It’s got to be done… no excuses."

Another added: “Definitely the Palace shirt his first day back.”
