We are delighted to announce that Piers Morgan is joining the Good Morning Britain presenting team, co-hosting with Susanna Reid three days a week from November.
Piers said: “I am very excited at the prospect of waking up at 3am every morning, and even more excited by the thought of how annoying Susanna is going to find me after a few months. Good Morning Britain is a great show with a terrific team on and off screen. I’m looking forward to it enormously.”
Managing Director of Daytime, ITV Studios, Emma Gormley said:
“We're proud of the strong show we've been building over the last 18 months and that audience figures are up some seven per cent year on year. We look forward to continuing that growth with Piers as part of the team.”
ITV Director of Daytime, Helen Warner said:
“We loved having Piers on the show earlier this year, so we're delighted that he's joining us permanently. He is an excellent interviewer and a great broadcaster, who fits in brilliantly with GMB's family of presenters.”
As part of ITV’s Tackle Hunger together campaign Charlotte Hawkins is reporting from the region of Chikwawa talking to the families affected, finding out about the Work of the UN World Food programme and is helping to finish off a school canteen which will help feed preschool children what will probably be their one proper meal of the day.
Five-year-old Shania is one of them. Her parents are subsistence farmers. Over half of people in Malawi are farmers, who rely on their small plot of land (similar to the size of a British allotment) to feed their children and sell any leftovers at market. The floods swept all their crops away, and now the hot weather is not helping with planting new ones. They are struggling to feed their four children.
Shania has recently started going to the Nsekera nursery school and is receiving breakfast porridge every day. Her mum says she’s noticed a big difference in her, with Shania more alert and also taller and healthier. She will be one of the nursery children who will benefit from the new kitchen and feeding shelter that Charlotte is helping to finish this week.

She's one of the UK's most successful business leaders, but for years Michelle Mone has been battling OCD.
NICE believe that 750,000 equalling 1.2 percent of the UK population suffer from the mental health condition, characterised by obsessive thoughts that are only relieved by compulsive repetitive rituals including washing, cleaning and checking.
Michelle, who was diagnosed in her 30s, used to tidy her staff's desks when they weren't around and still now insists that there's never any handwriting on A4 files as it "looks disgusting". She is equally as obsessive at home.
Other famous faces who have admitted to OCD include David Beckham, Rafael Nadal, and Coronation Street's Ian Pulston-Davies and Kate Ford.
I really enjoy doing something positive now, because that's all part of my healing, and I cling onto that very strongly

A council in Wales has posted the faces of their most wanted litter louts in a bid to chase up fines they owe. Litter patrol officers in Rhonda Cynon Taff wear cameras out on patrol and issue fixed penalty notices to offenders.
