The broadcaster has not appeared on the ITV show for two days running. The Monday edition of the program was instead presented by Ben Shephard, alongside Morgan's regular co-host Susanna Reid.

The presenter took to Twitter on Sunday (May 3) to reveal he's been showing a "mild symptom" of COVID-19 over the past 48 hours, and has subsequently taken a test "out of an abundance of caution".

Reading out Piers' tweet, she continued said: "My COVID-19 test was negative".

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

Meanwhile, TV doctor Dr Hilary added "For him and his family, we're relieved too".

UPDATE: My COVID-19 test was negative.

Good Morning Britain's Piers Morgan will be taking time out of the show after developing coronavirus symptoms. "He'll be there quite soon, I imagine". "I'm getting quite exhausted already and it's only day two, quite frankly!"

The coronavirus pandemic has also turned Morgan into a critic of U.S. President Donald Trump, whom he has previously described as a friend.

His Twitter followers responded saying: "I hope you're well Piers".

He penned: "Thank you Health Secretary, I appreciate your concern", followed by a thumbs up emoji.

Morgan has been classed as an essential worker so has been travelling to the Good Morning Britain TV studio from his London home four mornings a week, putting him more at risk of contracting the virus.
