Alastair Campbell reveals that he will co-host Good Morning Britain with Susanna Reid for a short stint next month.

Alastair Campbell has revealed that he will host Good Morning Britain with Susanna Reid for three days next month.

Reid has been without a regular co-host since the shock departure of Piers Morgan from the show last month following complaints over his criticism of Meghan Markle.

ITV is not expected to replace Morgan permanently until September and in the meantime will test a few potential partnerships with Reid, including former Labour spin doctor Campbell.

Posting pictures of him visiting the GMB set on Thursday, the 63-year-old wrote on Twitter: "So weird to be wearing suit and tie. Been in at @GMB checking the presenter chair and seeing if I can cope with the tech!"

"And no I am NOT the new @piersmorgan BUT I will be presenting alongside @susannareid100 May 10-12 thru Mental Health Awareness Week.

"In addition to usual news, views and interviews hoping to draw attention to MH Issues which GMB have long championed. But also keen to get stuck in on all the big political stories post May 6 elections. No piano! Wish I'd been on this a.m"

Rumoured contenders for Morgan's job in the long term include Richard Madeley, Adil Ray and Judge Rinder.
