It appears ITV is struggling to replace Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain.
The former GMB star left the show last month (March) after a wave of setbacks from viewers following his comments on Meghan Markle.
Since he left, many have wondered if the show will ever find a new host like him.
Well, it turns out ITV was asking itself the same thing.
ITV cannot find a replacement for Piers Morgan
Chef Kevin Lygo has confessed that the network has recognized that there is “not a single person” who can replace Piers.
Kevin told Deadline: “Piers is something special. You cannot replace someone like him. There is no one like Piers, good or bad.
“We have a list of moderators. They all step out and do a few days more than they would have … we will mix and match until we feel what is right.
“There is not a single person [who can replace him]. ”

Despite the way he resigned, Kevin insisted that Piers and GMB’s split continue to be amicable and that they have good relationships with Piers.
He admitted that he was “amazed” that Piers “took so long” because “there were several other moments when I thought,“ Oh, let’s go ”.
Kevin added that the last time he signed it was “about a year and a half ago, and I remember saying,” Well, we had a great run, didn’t we Piers? “.
Jason Manford disagrees with Piers
Comedian Jason Manford recently described Piers’ comments on Meghan Markle as “out of order”.
Piers said he didn’t believe Meghan in her Oprah interview.
The Duchess of Sussex said she felt suicidal while she was pregnant with Archie, but claimed she received no help from the palace.
Jason made his comments after Piers tweeted his Mail on Sunday Article in which he talked about his exit from GMB.
Comedian Jason replied, “I always think it’s a good idea to read all pages.

“I totally disagree with Piers on the Meghan thing, think he was out of order.”
He added: “But when he left GMB, no one cheered more than the politicians who have no one left to ask the tough questions.”
Piers then replied, “Fair enough … I respect your right to disagree with me.”
