Piers Morgan hopes the 'Good Morning Britain' Christmas day special will become a festive fixture alongside the Queen's Speech
Piers Morgan wants 'Good Morning Britain's Christmas Day show to become a festive fixture.
The 55-year-old TV presenter is hoping the upcoming festive special will become a seasonal favourite along with the Queen's Speech, as he wants to bring some "cheer" to those people who are spending Christmas on their own following the introduction of new coronavirus restrictions.
Piers told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I love Christmas and obviously this year is going to be a bit different given the Covid situation. So it will be nice to bring a bit of cheer, especially to those who may be on their own.
"Like a turkey, the Queen and James Corden, it’s great to finally be part of the nation’s big festive celebrations. I can confidently predict a lot of festive silliness, some great guests, and a tear or two."
ITV has confirmed 'This Morning', 'Good Morning Britain', and 'Lorraine' will all air on Christmas Day this year for the first time ever.
Piers and Susanna Reid will kick things off at 7am by celebrating the efforts of pandemic heroes from up and down the country, including the likes of Captain Sir Tom Moore and NHS staff members.
At 9am, Lorraine Kelly will take over as she shares some joy and laughter with special guests on 'Lorraine', and she'll let viewers into the secrets of what she gets up to over the festive period.
Then at 10am, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield will host the first-ever 'This Morning' on Christmas Day.
ITV said: "Packed full of heart-warming surprises, special guests, and of course favourite familiar faces – join the 'This Morning' family as they celebrate the most wonderful time of the year."
