Piers Morgan vows to LEAVE Good Morning Britain – but there’s a catch

Piers Morgan has vowed to quit the show for two weeks so he can go on a US road trip.

The 53-year-old heard Richard Arnold’s suggestion that the pair go for a road trip in Texas, and it seemed to entice him to abandon his spot on the show.

Piers replied: "I’m going to Texas in two weeks but I’m not going to a rodeo with you."

Susanna Reid tried to understand whether Piers was really going on holiday, and he sady replied he would be leaving her for some time while he travels around the country.

When asked who would be standing in for him, he jokingly replied: "The B Team."

While Susanna continued to laugh about Piers’ departure from the show – even if it is just for a little while – he decided to take aim at his B Team member, Charlotte Hawkins.

He told her: "I can read the news. I never understamd why you do it anyway.

Susanna, Charlotte and Richard were totally shocked, as Susanna stood up for her colleague.

She said: "She’s also an intelligent journalist!"

Later, a fan got in touch to try and defend Charlotte further, with the journalist telling Piers: "She says, ‘Charlotte is the referee between you and Susanna… be nice to her, because she may save your life one day.’"

But Piers joked that Charlotte can cause as much, if not more, damage than Susanna with her "death stare."
