The host revealed that he’d been informed that GMB was “hanging by a thread” just seconds before they went live.
As the pair and their co-host Ranvir Singh laughed off the comments, Piers questioned if the popular morning show was “being cancelled”.
Piers soon explained the comments were heard in his ear, from behind-the-scenes.
After welcoming viewers to the show, he quickly said he’d heard the voice of the show’s director suddenly shouting things in his ear, including the comment about the show.
He and Susanna soon expected a technical glitch had occurred that they had not noticed.
Asking for them to reveal to viewers what had happened, they never did find out what supposedly went wrong.
As the third show of the week kicked off on Wednesday, Piers alerted viewers to what was going on in his ear.
Piers commented: “Just to put into context what we get in our ear.
“You’re probably imagining at home it is just calm, and quiet and not much going on… it’s a constant stream of consciousness from our director who is emotionally erratic.”
Susanna looked confused before adding: “Well, on the edge I think is the phrase.”
Piers then explained: “He literally, just as we were about to come on air, we all heard the words ‘this show is hanging by a thread!’
“What? What do you mean, is it being cancelled? What do you mean? It will be some sort of technical glitch no one else would have spotted.”
Susanna and Piers then asked the director to speak to the viewers to explain what had apparently gone wrong – but he instead praised the stars and kept the news to himself.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
