Piers Morgan advises new GMB host to 'hold back' after fiery opinions saw him forced off the ITV show

PIERS Morgan advised the new Good Morning Britain host to "hold back" after his fiery opinions saw him forced off the ITV show.

The journalist, 56, poked fun at the ITV morning show's Tweet of support for Alastair Campbell, who will be a new guest anchor.

The GMB account wrote on Thursday afternoon: "Welcome to the team! Raising hands We can't wait for some fiery debates, don't hold back Fire"

Piers replied: "I'd hold back @campbellclaret .."

Piers – who hosted the show for five years – sensationally quit Good Morning Britain last month following a fiery on-air clash with co-star Alex Beresford.

He dramatically stormed off set after Alex accused Piers of having a personal grudge against Meghan Markle, with the presenter sparking over 40,000 Ofcom complaints for comments he'd made about the Duchess the previous day.

Now Alastair Campbell has insisted he's not the new Piers Morgan earlier on Thursday.

The ex-Labour spin doctor will be presenting alongside Susanna Reid as a guest host from Monday 10th to Wednesday 12th May.

His stint falls during Mental Health Awareness week, which is important to Tony Blair’s former right hand man following his own mental health battles – including a struggle with depression, which he wrote a book about last year.

Alastair paid a visit to the set today ahead of hosting the show and told fans: “So weird to be wearing suit and tie. Been in at @GMB checking the presenter chair and seeing if I can cope with the tech!"

He insisted: "And no I am NOT the new @piersmorgan BUT I will be presenting alongside @susannareid100 May 10-12 thru Mental Health Awareness Week.

“In addition to usual news, views and interviews hoping to draw attention to MH Issues which GMB have long championed. But also keen to get stuck in on all the big political stories post May 6 elections. No piano! Wish I’d been on this a.m!#johnlewisnightmare #Nolan #wallpaper.”

Susanna has been working with a series of different presenters on the show, including Ben Shephard and Adil Ray.
