He told fans: "UPDATE: My COVID-19 test was negative. I was advised to take the test by my doctor after developing possible coronavirus symptoms, and was entitled to do so as a Govt-designated essential worker.

"I'll be back on @GMB as soon as my doctor advises I'm OK to return to work."

Piers was forced off air today after falling unwell.

The 55-year-old presenter said he had been tested for Covid-19 and would not be back onscreen until getting the results back.

He tweeted last night: "UPDATE: On medical advice, and out of an abundance of caution for a mild symptom that arose in past 48hrs, I’ve had a test for COVID-19 and so won’t be working on @GMB until I get the result back, which should be tomorrow."

Ben Shephard stepped in to host the show alongside Susanna Reid in Piers' absence.


Relieved viewers tweeted Piers to send their best wishes.

One said: "Yay…. thank goodness… phew… don’t be away too long… missing you… xx."

Another added: "@piersmorgan and @GMB Great, now get back to being our voice Piers."
