Almost a year on since the £1.5m launch of Good Morning Britain figures show that ITV’s new breakfast show has pulled in fewer viewers than its much-maligned predecessor Daybreak.

And despite high-profile signings such as Susanna Reid from the BBC, Gmb is still being regularly beaten by rival BBC Breakfast.

Susanna Reid: 'It's a real privilege working with Piers Morgan'

15 April 2015 8:09 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Susanna Reid has described working with Piers Morgan as a "real privilege".

The presenter said that her temporary Good Morning Britain co-host "brings a whole new energy to the programme".

Morgan is standing in for Ben Shephard on the ITV breakfast show this week.

Speaking on Loose Women, Reid said: "It's fantastic working with him but he's a force of nature.

"It's like sitting next to a mini tornado and I think whenever anyone gets interviewed by him, they feel like they've been through a tornado!

"You should see the looks on guests' faces after they've been interviewed by Piers. They're like, 'What just happened?!'"

She continued: "It's a real privilege working with him though. He's been there, done it. It's incredible the kind of career he's had.

"It's fantastic and he brings a whole new energy to the programme and I am very much looking forward to working with him again tomorrow, »

Piers Morgan in Good Morning Britain debut, doesn't care about guest F-bomb

13 April 2015 2:06 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Many Brits were greeted with the presence of Piers Morgan on their televisions this morning (April 13), as he made his Good Morning Britain co-hosting debut.

Filling in for Ben Shepherd for a week, he began the day by noting that Susanna Reid "looked like a giant, glowing daffodil" in her yellow dress.

During his first day he also interviewed Labour's shadow chancellor Ed Balls, referring to him as Darth Vader and telling him that he is "allowed to laugh".

He also showed his cheeky side. After Reid commented that Zac Efron is the "wrong age bracket" for her, he replied: "That's not what I've heard".

Morgan didn't appear to batter an eyelid when guest Alain Robert dropped an F-bomb, leaving Reid to apologise for the bad language.

Later in the show, he noted that Gmb was the number five trending item in Britain, before adding: "Not sure it's for the right reasons, »

BBC spending on talent is down by 15% since 2008

4 March 2015 7:40 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

A review has found that the BBC has spent 15% less on talent over the past five years.

Salaries for stars on TV and radio have dropped from £221m to £188m since the last review from Oliver & Ohlbaum was released in 2008.

The BBC has also spent 29% less on stars earning over £100,000 a year.

The review stated that the BBC had made "vast improvements" in managing salaries, and that the corporation had paid less and allowed more stars to leave.

It also showed how stars including Susanna Reid, Chris Moyles and Jake Humphrey had left the BBC, but that it had still "maintained the quality of output for licence fee payers".

Former employee Jonathan Ross - whose salary was thought to have been around £6m - has also left since the Trust's last review.

The report added that the BBC must keep in check "what it gets for the money it pays »

David Beckham to Alex Turner: 6 times Susanna Reid has lost her interview cool

10 February 2015 9:22 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Interviewing attractive chaps is all part of a day's work for Susanna Reid.

And while she's usually very professional and manages to keep it together, sometimes she lets a steely blue eye or a muscled bicep get the better of her. And really, who can blame her?

After that David Beckham interview this morning, Digital Spy looks at the other times Susanna's lost her cool...

1. Luke Evans

"I'm not sure we can broadcast this," warned Susanna, before she exposed her neck to all and sundry.

In response to the question "What's it like when you go in for the big bite?" - which is frankly a bit much to hear over your Cheerios - Dracula Untold star Luke Evans leaned over to Susanna and nuzzled into her neck. She yelped and then exclaimed: "That was quite nice actually! Thanks so much!"

2. Alex Turner

To be fair to Susanna, Alex Turner »

Susanna has learnt to manage the condition but decided to share her story with viewers to highlight Tinnitus Awareness Week. The 44-year-old presenter - who has three sons, »
