Piers Morgan, 55, and Susanna Reid, 50, have informed viewers of the latest developments of the coronavirus pandemic since the crisis emerged in the UK last year. The Good Morning Britain duo have presented throughout all three lockdowns and have challenged Government ministers on their act against COVID-19. Fans of the ITV programme have expressed their gratitude to the hosts since March 2020 but they were particularly touched by a letter from a widow who recently lost her husband.
Beginning the show on Tuesday, Piers said: “It touched me this morning. I found the letter on my desk.
“I wish you all the very best. It’s one of the reasons we do this actually. It’s to shine a light into all sorts of people’s lives, particularly in the last year.
“People who are lonely, depressed, anxious, fearful, for obvious reasons, who just maybe want to be informed and entertained. Whatever it is, that’s why we do it.”
Jumping in, Susanna added: “It’s also to just provide company as well.
“It’s one of the great privileges of this job that we’re often one of the voices or only people you might see during the course of your day.”
