The former CNN host will join Susanna Reid on 'Good Morning Britain' for a week in April when her co-host is off.

Piers Morgan will guest-host ITV morning show Good Morning Britain for one week during April, the U.K. broadcaster said on Wednesday.

The journalist and former CNN host was recently named U.S. editor at large at MailOnline.

He will join Susanna Reid on the ITV morning show during the week of April 13 when co-host Ben Shephard is off. “I’m very excited to be joining Susanna and the GMB team for a week," Morgan said.

He added: "‎Thanks to my 3-year-old daughter’s sleeping pattern, I’ve been waking up at 4 a.m. for quite a while now. So the early starts shouldn’t present any problem.”
