Piers Morgan has revealed he will not present Good Morning Britain on Monday after being tested for coronavirus.

The presenter, 55, tweeted that he had started feeling unwell over the last 48 hours.

He wrote: "On medical advice, and out of an abundance of caution for a mild symptom that arose in past 48hrs, I've had a test for COVID-19 and so won't be working on GMB until I get the result back, which should be tomorrow."

It comes three weeks after his co-host, Susanna Reid, self-isolated at her London home after a member of her household developed symptoms of COVID-19.

Journalists are classed as key workers and Morgan has been respecting social distancing rules while on air.
