Danny Baker claims he is replacing Piers Morgan

GMB fans are baffled after Danny Baker claims he will take on Piers Morgan on the show.

Piers left the ITV show in March following the Meghan Markle franchise, and a permanent replacement has not yet been announced.

But now radio DJ Danny, 63, has posted a message on Twitter that he will take the empty chair next to presenter Susanna Reid.

“The cat is out of the pocket!” he wrote.

What did Danny Baker say about GMB?

“From August I will be the permanent host at @ susannareid100- aargh at @GMB! Early this morning for the first time in fifteen years.

“Rest assured, I will hold those in power accountable. And have a little fun too! “

Fans do not believe that Danny will take over from Piers for Morgan

However, the moderator had also reported joining Question Of Sport and the GB News team, so fans took his GMB announcement with a pinch of salt.

“Has your account been hacked,” asked one perplexed person while another said, “Question from the sport, the GB news and the GMB?” I don’t think so anyway. “

“Next, you present the Sausage Sandwich Game on Sky Arts,” joked another.

There were some people who seemed to believe Danny’s news.

“You don’t need ‘luck’ because you are perfect for the job, but you wish you all the best in your new life,” said one.

Danny has had problems on Twitter in the past

Danny has gotten himself into trouble on Twitter in the past.

In 2019, he was banned from BBC Radio 5 Live after posting a tweet about Meghan Markle’s son Archie, who appeared to be comparing the baby to a chimpanzee.

The DJ shared a black and white picture of a man and woman standing with a chimpanzee in hat, coat, pants and shoes.

He wrote in the tweet, which has since been deleted: “Royal Baby is leaving the hospital.”

Twitter users claimed the post was racist because of Meghan’s legacy, and Danny took it down and apologized.

He said: “I’m sorry that my gag picture of the little guy in the classy outfit whipped up a bit. It never crossed my mind because the mind is not sick.

“As soon as those good enough to point out possible connotations got in touch, it came down. And that’s it.”
