Richard Arnold has announced he is leaving Good Morning Britain temporarily, and his replacement has been revealed.
Richard, 48, presents the showbiz news for the ITV breakfast show – but will be taking a much deserved rest in Australia this Christmas.
Sharing his news yesterday morning with Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway, Richard was very vague on the exact date of his return, saying: “I’m going away for a while. Who knows how long?”
However, he did say that I’m A Celebrity campmate and talkRADIO presenter Iain Lee would be filling in for him, bringing us the latest showbiz news.
Iain then appeared on screen – in Richard’s dressing room – jokingly drawing a beard on a picture of Richard to make it look more like him.
“It’s just for a few weeks,” Iain told Ben and Kate. “So no pressure!”
Good Morning Britain continues on ITV.
