Richard Madeley ‘is tipped to replace Piers Morgan on GMB’

Richard Madeley is reportedly being lined up to replace Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain.

The broadcaster, 64, who has had several guest stints on the show in the past, will reportedly have a trial run on the panel in June.

It comes after Richard said he’d be ‘bonkers’ to turn down the chance to fill Piers’ seat on the show, after the presenter quit in March in the wake of his reaction to Meghan Markle‘s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

According to The Sun, bosses will test out Richard with a guest stint this summer, and are hoping he’ll be a good fit to replace Piers thanks to his background in journalism and no-nonsense approach during interviews.

A source said: ‘Piers is nigh-on impossible to replace and GMB execs accept this, but Richard has his own inimitable style.

‘Like Piers, he’s a trained journalist who knows how to press guests and get a decent ‘line’ from interviewees.

‘He shoots from the hip, says what he thinks, and is a genuinely brilliant, likeable chap off air — so it’s very much a ”watch this space”.’

Departure: Last month, Piers announced he had quit GMB after Alex Beresford, 40, challenged his comments about the Duchess of Sussex, 37, and her interview with Oprah, 67

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Good Morning Britain and Richard Madeley for comment.

The reports come just days after Richard himself said he would be open to filling Piers’ seat on GMB.

He told Metro: ‘If the phone went and they said, ‘Would you come in and talk?’ of course I would talk to them. It would be bonkers not to. But I very much like sitting in for people. I have all the fun and very little of the responsibility or flak.’

And while Piers is regularly seen going toe-to-toe with trolls on Twitter, Richard insists he ‘doesn’t give a f**k’ about what they’d say about him should he leave himself open to criticism by sharing his views on the show.

He said of the possibility of facing trolls: ‘I personally couldn’t give a f**k. Far too many younger presenters have been affected by Twitter and cowed by it.

‘I remember when I started sitting in for Piers on Good Morning Britain, I’d have a look at Twitter after I’d done a programme and, yes, you get some nice comments but you also get horrendous abuse and, from time to time, death threats.’

Last month, Piers announced he had quit GMB after Alex Beresford, 40, challenged his comments about the Duchess of Sussex, 37, and her interview with Oprah, 67.

The outspoken GMB host left the daytime show after he insisted he ‘didn’t believe a word’ of Meghan’s account of suffering suicidal thoughts and experiencing racism at the hands of the royal family.

Piers then walked off set after a fierce debate with Alex, in which the weather presenter accused Piers of unfairly ‘trashing’ Meghan, and branded him ‘diabolical’. 

Piers, who refused to apologise, later announced his resignation and tweeted his thanks to the GMB team, praising them for their ‘hard work and dedication’ that led to them beating their main breakfast TV rival.

Since Piers’ exit from the show he has received messages from several stars, naming Jeremy Clarkson and Bear Grylls, who have said he had a ‘right’ to say his mind.

Sharon Osbourne also voiced her support for Piers during an appearance on The Talk, though she has since parted ways with the CBS show.

Following Piers’ departure, a number of stars have stepped in to co-host the show alongside Susanna Reid, including Adil Ray, Alex Beresford, and Ben Shephard.
