Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid are back on Good Morning Britain for 2019!
Joined by Richard Arnold and Charlotte Hawkins on the GMB desk, they discussed trending topics from the past few days:
- Piers rants about veganism and the new Greggs vegan sausage roll.
- Susanna and Good Morning Britain were included in a question on a TV quiz show.
Up to 5000 jobs are expected to be cut by Jaguar Land Rover as apart of the two and a half billion pound cost-cutting plan.
Majority of the cuts are expected to be in middle management and some of the marketing areas.
The losses are likely to be blamed on concerns over Brexit as well as falling sales in China - and a drop in demand in diesel cars.
Motor Industry expert Professor David Bailey said: "There's a lot of uncertainty affecting the industry, and at a time when they're having to invest in new technologies, in particular, the shift towards hybrid and electric cars."

Richard Ratcliffe, husband of jailed British-Iranian dual citizen Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, told Good Morning Britain he didn’t want his wife to go on a hunger strike in order to get medical attention.
He admitted he tried to talk her out of the idea multiple times and attempted to postpone the strike, but she became increasingly upset over the lack of medical attention she required.
Mr Ratcliffe recalled conversations with his wife, in which she pointed out his campaigning for her innocence back in the UK wasn’t working as well as they had hoped.
She allegedly told him: “Enough is enough. You need to understand, I’m desperate.”
Similar to Lord Kitchener's 1914 'Want You' poster, a series of advertisements have been released that identify the need for 'snowflakes', 'binge gamers' and 'selfie addicts' to sign up for roles in the British army.
The campaign has divided opinion as army veteran Colonel Bob Stewart says there are already 'snowflakes' in the army, but it's never stopped them from performing to the best of their abilities.
January is prime time to battle the Christmas bloat and get rid of the pounds people have gained over the over-indulgent festive period.
Tens of thousands of people across the UK are a part of slimming clubs - weekly meeting groups aimed to help attendees lose weight.
Jodie Rigby-Mee fully believes in the work these clubs do, and says she has lost six stone from attending.
While it’s a big part of the ever-growing fitness industry in the UK, some are sceptical of how effective the clubs actually are in helping people lose weight. TV's Weight Loss Guru Steve Miller says they should be banned for being ‘dens of depression’, and for taking pounds out of wallets instead of waistlines.
A short film based on the notorious killers Jon Venables and Robert Thompson has been shortlisted for an Oscar nomination.
‘Detainment’ provides an insight into the two ten-year-olds who shocked the world in 1993 when they abducted, tortured and murdered two-year-old Jamie Bulger.
While the 30-minute film has been praised by many film critics, some viewers believe it should not have been made at all, as it could be seen as humanising Venables and Thompson.
Director Vincent Lambe told Good Morning Britain he wants to give viewers a different perspective on the brutal murder, rather than simply labelling the killers as ‘evil’.
