Good Morning Britain hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid have revealed they're both taking a break from hosting the ITV breakfast show

Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid have announced they are taking a break from Good Morning Britain.

The presenting duo revealed on Wednesday's edition of the ITV breakfast show that they won't be back on our screens until December 25.

Announcing their break, Piers, 55, told viewers: "We will will back on Christmas Day."

ITV daytime favourites Good Morning Britain, Lorraine and This Morning are broadcasting their first Christmas Day show ever next Friday.

The channel is airing the popular programmes as it hopes to bag the festive ratings crown in its ongoing battle against the BBC.

GMB will relive the moments created by the real stars of 2020 – celebrating Covid heroes up and down the country, from the likes of Captain Sir Tom to the incredible staff of the NHS who saved so many lives.

Lorraine Kelly, 61, will also serve up an hour of heart-warming fun from 9AM onwards.

The Scottish presenter will be letting viewers into the secrets of her festive period and sharing joy and laughter with some special guests.

Then at 10AM, Phillip, 57, and Holly, 39, will be hosting a special episode of This Morning on Christmas Day.

The news was revealed by the channel's boss Kevin Lygo as he revealed an action-packed Christmas line-up in a special video earlier this month.

He explained: 'In a festive first we'll be showing one-off specials of our hit daytime shows on Christmas Day itself – Good Morning Britain, Lorraine and This Morning.

'They will be followed by a special Christmas helping of James Martin and Ainsley Harriott.'

ITV will broadcast a host of Christmas specials this December including Celebrity Juice, The Chase, Tenable, The Savoy At Christmas and Gordon, Gino and Fred.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV at 6am
