Piers Morgan, 55, is back on Good Morning Britain this morning after enjoying some well-deserved time away from the ITV studio last week. But the controversial host left fans a little concerned about his well-being after he announced his return to the show alongside a bedraggled photo of himself looking a little worse for wear.
Jesus Christ, are you ok?
Taking to Twitter to give fans the good news, Piers wrote: “It’s been a long ten days but it didn’t break me,” he joked.
“See you back on @GMB tomorrow morning. #LockdownHalfTerm.”
He accompanied the caption with a weary-looking snap of himself with stubble and wearing dark sunglasses.
While the majority were pleased to see that the outspoken star would be back in his rightful place on the panel this morning, there were others who wanted to check in on him after being stunned by his new look.

Not the usual scrubbed up, buttoned down Piers they’re used to seeing, some of his followers immediately took to the comments section to ask the presenter if he was doing OK.
One wrote: “Jesus Christ, are you ok?”
Another added: “Piers is everything alright….”
“You look like you need a good wash,” a third joked.
Elsewhere, in response to the same jokey remark about half term “breaking him”, another winced: “You look broken though.”
Unfortunately, despite his absence on-air, Piers usually finds himself under fire for something or other and this time it was regarding this apparent witticism.
After insisting that half term “didn’t break him”, some believed the statement was a little insensitive to those who haven’t been able to work since last year due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic.
One retorted: “A long ten days’ r u raking the p**s Piers? How long has it been for pub workers, restaurant workers, shop workers, barbers, hairdressers, nail bar workers, think about them before u put crap out like that…….”(sic)

Another added: “10 days for you but for us average Joe’s it’s been three lockdowns pretty much a year of our lives! Your situation is nothing on ours …. life hasn’t really changed for you! You still are going to work meanwhile most of us are locked up waiting for this s**t storm to be over!”
“Yep true I’m a barber no money since week before Christmas, an absolute joke. At least you’re still working @piersmorgan,” a third pointed out.
A fourth replied sarcastically: “Bravo!! As a hairdresser I have been f****d big time!!!”
Even though he was away from work, Piers has had quite an eventful week after he revealed police are taking a vile death threat against him and his family seriously.
Officers visited the star’s family home on Wednesday night to take a statement after a troll threatened to kill him and his eldest son Spencer.
Piers gave an update on Twitter, writing: “Well they’re [police] definitely taking this seriously.. they’re round my house now taking a statement.”
Police confirmed to The Sun: “On Wednesday, February 17, police received a report of malicious communications relating to messages sent on social media. Officers have spoken with the complainant in person.
“At this early stage, it is believed that the person responsible for the posts may have deleted the associated social media accounts. Enquiries remain ongoing.”
Good Morning Britain airs weekday at 6am on ITV.
