Good Morning Britain is getting an evening spin-off.

A one-off special, Good Evening Britain, hosted by Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, will air later this month.

The live late-night version of the ITV breakfast show will be broadcast after an England World Cup match.

The one-hour, peak-time ITV show will feature debate, chat and famous faces, and measure “the thoughts of the nation” after England take on Belgium, as well as other news and showbiz stories from the day.

Morgan told Good Morning Britain viewers: “You know you think you’ve had enough of me in the mornings?

“Good news Britain, you’re going to get a load of me in the evenings because we are having our first ever Good Evening Britain.

“We are coming to primetime. We’re actually very excited about it. I won’t have to go to bed for that until about mid-afternoon.”

Reid said: “We’ve made the big time!”

Emma Gormley, managing director of ITV Studios’s daytime team, said: “We are excited to introduce one of our flagship shows to the evening schedule. It promises to be a lively 60-minute event, filled with all of the ingredients that make GMB so unmissable!”

Good Evening Britain will air on Thursday June 28 at 9.15pm on ITV.
