GMB has been hit by a number of Ofcom complaints after Piers Morgan was replaced by Alex Beresford last week.
ITV viewers struggled when Alex co-starred with Kate Garraway on Friday’s March 26th edition – just a few weeks after bumping into Piers.
The couple were famous for their comments on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

After Alex’s appearance as a co-host, the show was hit with 28 complaints.
An Ofcom spokesman told ED !: “We are reviewing complaints against our broadcasting rules, but we have yet to decide whether or not to investigate.”
ED! asked ITV for a comment.
When did Alex Beresford perform at GMB?
The star was on the program last Friday and admitted that he was glad to be back.
During the show, Kate said, “And you’ve had some turbulent times too, Alex. It’s nice to have you here, it is very much.”
Alex then replied, “It’s nice to be back.”
However, his appearance left some viewers on Twitter split.
One tweeted: “When Alex showed up, he switched to the BBC. Miss Piers. “
A second shared: “As soon as Alex Beresford came, I contacted the BBC. He should have left when Piers did. “
