Susanna, 48, told viewers Piers was absent because of his annual golf competition, but they weren’t happy.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “It’s two weeks till the end of the school year. Piers come back, we need you.”

Another tweeted furiously: “@piersmorgan where the bloody hell are you! Z team on #GMB this morning, will not watch #BBC anymore so left with Cheers. So CHEERS to you for screwing with my week.”

A third added: “No Piers…on a Monday.. not a good start to my week #GMB.”

It wasn’t the only change on the GMB desk this morning, as singer Peter Andre stood in for showbiz correspondent Richard Arnold.

Peter, 46, joked he had “big shoes to fill” but was glad to see Richard had cleaned his dressing room ahead of his arrival.

Richard’s appearance on the show was rather poignant, as it is the one-year anniversary of him being placed in a coma to save his life.

Last year, the former Blue Peter presenter nearly died after being struck down by pneumonia.
