GOOD Morning Britain viewers have begged Piers Morgan to return to screens today after a series of awkward segments left them in a bad mood today.
People at home watched stand ins Kate Garraway and Charlotte Hawkins interview a Punch and Judy entertainer and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
They asked should Punch and Judy shows be banned and Kate got upset when their guest held a black doll that looked similar to an offensive Golliwog.
Then earlier, fans were baffled when the hosts asked Spicer if he’d ever touched US President Donald Trump’s hair.
The slim pickings and lack of lighthearted debate didn’t go down well with people at home.
They took to Twitter in their droves and pleaded with Piers, 53, to return.
One person wrote on Twitter: “Can’t believe how pathetic that Punch and Judy debate was!”
Another viewer moaned: “GMB isn’t as good without Piers and Suzanna. No bite or confrontational interviews. Roll on august.”
Earlier this year Richard Madeley stood in for Piers and he didn’t fare well with viewers either.
He was blasted for acting like Alan Partridge and having a “cringeworthy” presenting style like the iconic bumbling TV character.
They rushed to Twitter to share their belief that the journalist, 62, was morphing into Steve Coogan’s famously inept TV and radio presenter.

One wrote: “Richard Madeley constantly interrupting the newsreader on #GMB is confirming my belief that he is in fact the twin of Alan Partridge.”
Another commented: “Richard Madeley is the real life Alan Partridge.
“In fact, he’s more like Alan Partridge than Alan Partridge is! #GMB”
