Piers Morgan jokes he’s only seen Ben Shephard once in FIVE YEARS as he ‘can’t compete’

‘He can’t compete aesthetically!’ Piers Morgan jokes he’s only seen Ben Shephard once in FIVE YEARS as GMB presenter celebrates his 46th birthday

Piers Morgan marked his Good Morning Britain colleague Ben Shephard’s 46th birthday with a tongue-in-cheek Instagram post on Friday.

The broadcaster, 55, joked he’s only seen the presenter once during his five years on the show as he ‘can’t compete aesthetically,’ adding it ‘must be in his contract’ to avoid him on the set.

Ben usually presents GMB whenever Piers is absent on Thursdays and Fridays and during the school holidays, so it’s no surprise the pair have rarely crossed paths in the studio.

Piers shared a snap of a rare moment he and Ben were together in the GMB studio, along with the funny caption: ‘Happy Birthday @benshephardofficial – my @gmb presenting colleague for the past 5yrs.

‘Yet this the ONLY time we’ve ever appeared together in the studio. I assure it’s in his contract to avoid me because he feels he can’t compete aesthetically.’

Piers and Ben’s GMB co-host Charlotte Hawkins quickly saw the funny side, as she responded with two laughing emojis.

It proved to be a week of birthdays for the GMB team as Susanna Reid also celebrated turning 50 on Thursday.

Once again Piers took to Instagram to pay tribute to his longtime colleague and ‘TV wife,’ along with a hilarious snap of the pair sitting in a bed together.

He wrote: ‘Happy 50th Birthday to my fabulous, long-suffering TV wife @susannareid100 who when first told I’d been hired to be her ⁦⁦@GMB⁩ co-host 5yrs ago responded: “Are you ****ing joking????!” Time’s been a great healer..’

Earlier this year, Susanna spoke out about how she felt turning 50, exclaiming she longer believes the age is the cut-off point anymore but is rather an invitation to power through. 

She told The Sun: ‘I definitely feel more comfortable with myself… I’ve got to an age where this is who I am and I’m happy with that,’ she added.
