Bill Turnbull










Bill Turnbull is to reunite with his former BBC Breakfast co-host Susanna Reid when he stands in for Piers Morgan on ITV's Good Morning Britain.

Turnbull will sit behind the GMB desk on 24, 25 and 26 February while Morgan has some time off.

 He and Reid worked together on the BBC One sofa from 2001 until she left in 2014. He left two years later and was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2018.

He said his health is "OK at the moment" and in recent months he's "felt healthier than I have in a long time".

He added: "On the 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!"

Referring to the more outspoken nature of the show's presenters, Turnbull said: "It goes against my personal grain really as I'm so used to not spouting off on air.

"I've been working on commercial radio, so to a limited degree I've had more freedom. But who knows what might happen. It might be that the beast might be unleashed on air."

Reid said: "When Bill came into GMB, he joked about filling in for Piers - and now he is! It will be lovely to work alongside him again.

"I expect Bill presenting a breakfast show again will be like a duck taking to water - if the early alarm call isn't too much of a shock."
