Comedian and broadcaster, Adil Ray, will guest present ‘Good Morning Britain’ (GMB) for two days this week.

The star of ‘Citizen Khan’ will take over presenting duties on Monday and Tuesday with Ranvir Singh, while Susanna and Piers are away.

‘GMB’ Editor, Neil Thompson said, “We’re really excited about having Adil guest present GMB. He’s got all the virtues, the values and the versatility we treasure in a great ITV Breakfast broadcaster. In his own distinctive and authentic way he can bridge current affairs and comedy, never losing sight and sense of the audience that is watching and listening.”

Actor, Writer & Broadcaster Ray said, “I’m delighted that ITV have asked me to present GMB. I have grown up with ITV’s Breakfast telly. I’ll try to channel my best Rustie Lee and the charm of the great Nick Owen. Above all, I’ll try not to miss my alarm!”

Ray and Ranvir will be joined by Sean Fletcher reading the news on Monday and Tuesday, and Eamonn Holmes will return to present on Wednesday to Thursday and Sean will present on Friday.

‘Good Morning Britain’ airs weekdays from 06:00 – 08:30 on ITV.
