Susanna shared Piers’ health update with viewers as the breakfast show kicked off, with Dr. Hilary Jones also adding his relief as he said that the star will be “back before we know it”.
Ben joked that he couldn’t wait for Piers to no longer need him to fill in, joking that he is adding “more and more make-up to try and hide the bags” from his early starts.
Last night, Piers told fans: “UPDATE: My COVID – (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.”
Lord Alan Sugar previously reignited his feud with the GMB presenter by questioning why he was able to get a test so quickly.
