Susanna Reid calls out Piers Morgan’s BBC Breakfast claim amid Louise Minchin’s exit
Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid, 50, has taken to Twitter to call out her former colleague Piers Morgan’s, 56, light-hearted claim that he’s joining BBC Breakfast. Louise Minchin announced earlier today that she is stepping down from her role after 20 years, saying that she’s “decided it’s time”. After seeing Dan Walker’s emotional message to his colleague, the former GMB star said he he would be joining the show to make the “first same-sex male presenting team to appease the wokies”, before Susanna jumped in to clear up Piers’ tweet as a “joke”, likening it to an “April Fools” prank.
In view of her 825,700 followers, the ITV host shot down her former colleague’s claims.
She wrote: “April 1st just moved to June 8th…”.
Her response came after Piers claimed that he is stepping into BBC presenter Louise’s shoes, after she announced her departure from the Breakfast show after 20 years at the helm.
After Dan penned an emotional message to his colleague of five years, Piers told the father-of-two to stop crying.

Upon seeing Pier’s tweet, Dan hit back, saying that he was worried the ITV couldn’t hack presenting the BBC Breakfast show.
Addressing his rival’s offer, he said: “No thanks… wouldn’t want you storming off if Carol [Kirkwood] asked you something awkward.”
Dan added three laughing emojis as well as the hashtag, “TearsForPiers”.
Responding to the BBC presenter’s tweet, one fan wrote: “Brilliant reply as always Dan he’ll never get the better of you.”
