Susanna Reid has told how she had to take her mic off when Piers Morgan was first mooted as Good Morning Britain co-host.

Reid told Channel 4 show Sunday Brunch what her response was when her editor first suggested Morgan have a role on the early morning ITV show.

She responded: “Can we take our microphones off before I discuss whether I think that’s a good idea or not?”

But she told Sunday Brunch: “Whatever you think about him, everybody loves to talk about him and that’s not a bad thing for a television show.”

She also spoke about her new ITV evening spin-off show, which starts this week after the England World Cup match, saying: “We’re not Match Of The Day.”
