Worries about Piers’ future on GMB came after he hinted at his plans to leave the ITV programme before embarking on his break from the show alongside co-host Susanna Reid.
While informing viewers about their upcoming holiday, Piers said: “We have two more days left, then you’ll all be glad to see the back of us.”
Susanna quickly clarified: “For now! Whenever you say we’re off and we’re leaving…”
The presenter then read out a letter from a viewer who had sent in paintings of the two hosts with a note, which said: “I thought I heard you state you’re leaving at the end of the year.”
Piers explained in response: “I’m not… Leaving next year… Possibly.”
