Good Morning Britain: Five ways ITV's new breakfast show can avoid a Daybreak-style death

16 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

ITV may have poached Susanna Reid from the BBC to host its new breakfast show starting on Monday, but we've seen this tactic fail before

Ever since ITV lost its nerve and refreshed GMTV in 2009, it's been restlessly spinning through endless variations on the breakfast theme. When the final incarnation of GMTV with Emma Crosby didn't work, we got Purple Daybreak with Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley. When this pairing turned out to be the most miserable on morning telly, we got Yellow Daybreak with Lorraine Kelly and Aled Jones. Now, as of Monday, the keys have been handed to Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard. But can Good Morning Britain beat the odds and succeed? Here are five pieces of my ever-fruitful advice, producers, if you're listening:

20 hours ago | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Susanna Reid feels like she's known Ben Shephard her whole life. The 43-year-old TV presenter will work alongside the former 'GMTV' host when they front ITV's new breakfast show, 'Good Morning Britain', from next week, and Susanna says they've hit it off already. She explained: ''I didn't know Ben but I didn't feel nervous meeting him because he's such a familiar face having presented 'GMTV' and been such a regular on television. It felt like I'd known him all my life.'' The former 'BBC Breakfast' star has even taken it upon herself to get to know Ben, as well as her fellow 'Good »

Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard have appeared in the first promo shots for Good Morning Britain.

Former BBC Breakfast co-host Reid has made the leap to ITV for its upcoming morning show, which will replace Daybreak from Monday, April 28.

"When you have done Strictly Come Dancing live on a Saturday night in front of millions, never can I be that nervous again," she said.

She added: "I have had a fabulous two decades at the BBC but ITV offered me a fantastic opportunity. It's not often in your career you get the opportunity to build something new that »

Rachel Riley not replacing Susanna Reid on BBC Breakfast: 'Too early'

3 April 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Rachel Riley has told Digital Spy that there is "no truth" in rumours she is being courted to replace Susanna Reid on BBC Breakfast, commenting that she couldn't handle all the early starts.

The Countdown favourite was reportedly being lined up to join Bill Turnbull on the programme after her Strictly Come Dancing co-star Reid defected to ITV's upcoming Good Morning Britain.

However, Riley told DS that she believes herself to be so unsuitable for the role that her friends "laughed their heads off" when the story first appeared.

"There's no truth in that, I'm not sure where that's come from," she said of the BBC Breakfast rumours.

"I had quite a few messages from friends that just laughed their heads off at the thought of me doing anything that early in the morning. No, there's no truth in that.

"That's a job for a journalist and I'm sure they'll »

15 March 2014 5:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Kate Garraway has revealed that she will be part of ITV's new breakfast show Good Morning Britain.

The new show will replace the current Daybreak format later this year. Former BBC Breakfast presenter Susanna Reid is taking over hosting duties with Ben Shepherd.

Speaking to Bang Showbiz, Garraway said that she was "staying with Daybreak, and then the new show".

''I think I've probably got more in me. I've been in breakfast TV for 16 years ... BBC, then Sky, and then GMTV, and then Daybreak, and now the new show that's to come.''

She added: "Weirdly, I think now I've got a more varied broadcasting life than ever before, because I've got radio, and BBC and ITV, and the Travel Channel.

Breakfast is least important TV of the day

8 March 2014 4:08 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Even with Susanna Reid on the morning show in Salford, breakfast TV is still a relic chasing fewer bums on sofas

Enter Susanna, exit Daybreak. The latest episode in TV's own soap opera rumbles on. Yet there is one new question to throw into the 31-year melodrama of British breakfast television. Simply: who cares? Who cares if Lorraine Kelly goes back in time to the 8.30am slot? Who cares, except possibly Susanna Reid's family and bank manager, if she's sitting on a sofa in Salford or Southbank?

There are residual financial reasons to care, of course. ITV can't countenance a Daybreak that trails 500,000 viewers behind the BBC's own cheaper version. The traditional young-mother-and-kids ad market still matters. There's also the humiliation for a commercial sector that enjoyed ratings leads in the early noughties. How do comfy old Bill Turnbull and the gang – talking to whoever is starring at a »

Susanna, 42, had requested the week off in the aftermath of her highly publicised split from partner Dominic Cotton and delivered a further blow by handing in her notice on Monday morning.
