Susanna Reid has publicly asked Kate Garraway not to leave Good Morning Britain for This Morning.
Speaking on Monday’s GMB, Susanna, 52, was discussing the fact that Sarah Ferguson will be appearing on This Morning as a guest host when the idea that Kate, 56, might join the show was floated.
Susanna and her co-host Richard Madeley were chatting to the Daily Mail’s Andrew Pierce and the Mirror’s Kevin Maguire when the former said: ‘I’m pushing for Kate Garraway. I like Kate Garraway.’
Although Susanna replied ‘yes’ at first, she quickly added: ‘Well, we don’t want Kate Garraway to leave. I think she’s especially talented and she’d be absolutely brilliant.’
Issuing a public plea to Kate, Susanna continued: ‘Please don’t go anywhere, Kate. This Morning: hands off our Kate.’
It was confirmed last week that the Duchess of York would be guest hosting This Morning.
While personalities including Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary have continued to front the programme, several stars have also temporarily filled her spot, including Rylan Clark and Cat Deeley.
On Monday, Sarah – who married Prince Andrew in 1986 and is the mother of Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie – will join Alison and Dermot on the show.
The 64-year-old will also edit the instalment alongside boss Martin Frizell.
‘I have appeared on This Morning before, but this time I am coming back in a very different role,’ Sarah said in a statement obtained by MailOnline.
‘I love live TV and am an enormous fan of the show, and the whole team is always lovely to deal with.’
She continued: ‘I’m looking forward to being there for the whole morning, and thrilled to be guest editing the show which will mean getting to explore some topics that I’m passionate about.’
This Morning boss Martin added: ‘We are all delighted Sarah, Duchess of York wanted to come back here and I’m very happy for her to make some of my decisions on Monday.
‘She has a great understanding of the show and how television works and I feel viewers will be really interested in the running order she is putting together.’
