Good Morning Britain viewers were thrilled on Monday to see Susanna Reid and Bill Turnbull back together for breakfast TV.

Reid and Turnbull were previously co-hosts of BBC Breakfast, but since Reid left for ITV in 2014 they have only presented the news together once – in February, when Turnbull stood in for Piers Morgan for one show.

Turnbull, 65, will be behind the Good Morning Britain desk tomorrow and Wednesday, too, and viewers couldn't have been more pleased to see the old breakfast pals back together.

She said: "It's like being back at the BBC! Although maybe we shouldn't be, controversial subject this morning."

Good Morning Britain has been rotating a series of co-hosts since Piers Morgan's exit in March following a row over his comments about Meghan Markle and her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Ben Shephard and Adil Ray have taken on most of the co-hosting duties and former Labour spin doctor Alastair Campbell also joined the show for three episodes during Mental Health Awareness Week.

On Monday's show, Reid also told Turnbull that he was looking well – he has been going through treatment for incurable prostate cancer.

He was diagnosed in 2017 with prostate cancer that later spread to his spine, ribs, pelvis, hips and legs, and in 2019 made a Channel 4 documentary about his condition.
