Watch: Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid celebrate five years on GMB

Good Morning Britain co-presenters Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid are celebrating five years hosting the popular ITV breakfast show.

The pair have proven a hit with viewers in their time on the programme, and they celebrated their successful “TV marriage” on the show today.

Welcoming viewers to the show, Reid joked: “And they said it wouldn’t last! Or I did. Today we celebrate, if that’s the right word, five years of Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain.

Morgan added: “Who would have thought it? It's been a rocky road, to put it mildly.”

Reid continued: “Five years ago when the editor walked into my dressing room and said, ‘We have a proposal, which is Piers Morgan might come and sit next to you on the programme,’ I had to take my microphone off because I didn’t want anybody else to hear my reaction to that news.

“Five years, congratulations, well done, you have put up with a lot as well.”

Jake Wood and Danny Dyer were seen on the set of EastEnders, with Jake saying: “Always love you on the show.”

Hollywood star Britt Ekland said: “Five fantastic years on Good Morning Britain, my favourite morning show. Longer than most marriages here in Hollywood.”

Vinnie Jones added: “Thanks Susanna, five great years!”

Ian Wright said: “I love you both in equal measure,” while singer James Blunt joked: “Susanna, it’s been five years with him, blink three times if you need our help.”

Former This Morning stars Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan joined the pair on the show to offer their support.

Madeley joked that Finnigan would always give him a “Judy jab” to get him to stop talking on air.

She added: “You are a fantastic pair on television, you are both immensely watchable. Richard and I love watching you. But I couldn’t possibly have been working with you [Piers] all those years.”
