The controversial TV personality teased that he would be appearing on ‘GMB’ last month, enraging die-hard Jeremy Clarkson fans when he teased that he would be “the temporary replacement for a popular male TV presenter on a big UK show”.
Luckily for ‘Top Gear’ lovers, it turned out he was actually talking about Ben Shephard, and made his debut on Monday’s ‘Good Morning Britain’, even keeping his cool when one of his first interviewees dropped an F-bomb on live telly.
Piers also managed to snag himself a few unlikely fans with his new stint on ‘GMB’...
Piers Morgan makes me laugh haha— JOSH (@DickheadJosh) April 13, 2015
Piers Morgan hosting ITV's morning show is probably the only thing that could mean they beat BBC Breakfast's viewing figures. Clever move.— Matthew Stadlen (@MatthewStadlen) April 13, 2015ADVERTISEMENT

And I'm even more disappointed that Piers Morgan is actually quite good on Good Morning Britain #GMB— Ian Hyland (@HylandIan) April 13, 2015
However, a lot of people didn’t exactly seem overjoyed to begin their Monday morning with an image of Piers on their screens.
Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain, instantly rendering the show's title ironic and oxymoronic.— Mark Grainger (@MarkGrainger) April 13, 2015

Good Morning Britain's Twitter has just apologised for foul language.
Mainly from the viewers who are having to look at Piers Morgan.— Greg Scott (@GregScottTV) April 13, 2015
I can't come in to work today
I saw Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain and jammed the remote control into my retina— Dan (@ehdannyboy) April 13, 2015
Usually watch Good Morning Britain. Not a fucking chance with @piersmorgan on there now though. Breakfast on BBC1 it is.— Oli (@OStarsmore) April 13, 2015
Luckily, it doesn’t look as though Piers has taken any of the negative criticism aimed at him to heart, and has even publicly responded to some of his detractors on his official Twitter page.
Formerly the editor of The Mirror, in more recent years Piers has made a name for himself as a TV personality, judging 'Britain's Got Talent' and the American equivalent, as well as fronting 'Piers Morgan's Life Stories' in the UK and the now-defunct 'Piers Morgan Live' in the US.
He will be co-presenting ‘Good Morning Britain’ on ITV for the rest of this week.
