Piers Morgan’s GMB dressing room is boxed up after he quit as he jokes he’ll leave the cardboard cut-out of Susanna Reid

PIERS Morgan's Good Morning Britain dressing has been boxed up after he quit as he joked he'll leave the cardboard cut-out of Susanna Reid.

The former presenter, 55, shared a photo of his now empty dressing room, leaving behind just the chairs, TV, clock, bin and a cardboard cut-out of Susanna Reid.

The cut-out shows his ex-co-star wearing a red sparkly dress with her hands on her hips.

Piers captioned the picture: "Goodbye, Good Morning Britain! (I think I’ll leave the cardboard cut-out, would be a bit creepy to take that home… 🤣)"

Fans paid tribute to Piers in the comment section, with one person saying: "it will never be the same again , you carried the show"

Another added: "You will never be replaced 👏😢"

A third remarked: "Mornings just aren’t the same anymore 😂 Come back"

Piers quit Good Morning Britain earlier this month during a row over on-air comments the controversial host made about Meghan and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey.

He said he did not believe Meghan Markle's claims about her mental health.

Meghan raised concerns with ITV's CEO after Piers said he didn't believe she had suffered suicidal thoughts.

She made the comments during her two-hour interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday, when she said she "didn't want to be alive anymore".

The Duchess of Sussex is said to have been worried Piers' words might affect others struggling with similar issues.

Seniors execs wanted the 55-year-old presenter to say sorry on air but he refused and stepped down from GMB instead.

It's been expected that Lingo host Adil Ray, who has hosted Good Morning Britain in Piers' absence before, was poised to take the job.

However, bookies admitted last week that the running to bag the show's top job was extremely close.

A spokesperson for bookies Ladbrokes said: "Adil Ray is leading the way in the race to replace Piers on GMB, although no less than five names are priced at 4/1 or shorter as things stand."

However, "safe option" Ben Shephard is reportedly poised to take over.

The Mail On Sunday reported: "ITV and GMB bosses were totally unprepared for Piers going.

"Ben, who is adored by the staff and much of the audience, stepped in and the thought is now that he will work long term.

"He certainly isn’t like-for-like for Piers, but then who is?"
