Piers Morgan reunited with his former Good Morning Britain co-presenters Kate Garraway and Susanna Reid on the red carpet at the TRIC Awards 2021 on Wednesday.

The TV star, 56, looked delighted to be back with his old colleagues as he stood between them and posed for snaps at the event held in London. 

Piers sensationally quit the breakfast show following his comments about Meghan Markle‘s Oprah interview and subsequent onscreen clash with co-star Alex Beresford back in March.

Piers looked dapper in a black suit, crisp white shirt and black shoes as he larked around with his friends.  

He threw his arms around the ladies, proving their are no hard feelings between the trio.

Getting in on the reunion was Ben Shephard, who also joined them on the red carpet.

Ben remains the main male anchor on GMB while Piers still is yet to be replaced with a full-time Monday-Wednesday anchor.

Ben looked smart in an eggplant-hued suit over a crisp white open-collar shirt with a silver pocket square, while Piers went for a classic back suit. 

Piers stormed off GMB in March as he discussed the Harry and Meghan interview, where he expressed his belief that Meghan was lying during the chat with Oprah Winfrey and that the couple damaged the royal family’s reputation. 

The outspoken host left the daytime series after he insisted he ‘didn’t believe a word’ of Meghan’s account of suffering suicidal thoughts and experiencing racism at the hands of the royal family.

Piers then walked off set after a fierce debate with Alex, in which the weather presenter accused Piers of unfairly ‘trashing’ Meghan, and branded him ‘diabolical’. 

When Piers walked off screen, Alex continued: ‘I’m sorry but Piers just spouts off on a regular basis and we have to sit there and listen.’  

Piers, who refused to apologise, later announced his resignation and tweeted his thanks to the GMB team, praising them for their ‘hard work and dedication’ that led to them beating their main breakfast TV rival.  

And Piers shared his own reflections on the events of that fateful week in a piece for the Mail On Sunday shortly afterwards.

Piers called Alex ‘GMB’s occasional stand-in weatherman’ and ‘uptight’ in the telling account, adding that the presenter hasn’t messaged him since his exit unlike others on the show.   

Reflecting on their now infamous encounter on GMB, which ended in Piers leaving the studio, Piers said he wasn’t going to sit there and be ‘whacked’ by one of his own team. 

Pier‘s comments about the Duchess of Sussex‘s interview led to the highest number of complaints in Ofcom’s history.  

The Duchess of Sussex also made a formal complaint to Ofcom about Piers after he dismissed her account of suffering suicidal thoughts and experiencing racism at the hands of the royal family.

The TRIC Awards 2021 kicked off on Wednesday afternoon at 8 Northumberland Avenue in London – with Love Island‘s Liberty Poole leading the glamour on the red carpet.

Liberty – who appeared in this summer’s series of the ITV2 show – still rocked a golden tan as she posed for snaps in a black lace strap-top and chocolate slacks.

She matched the look with a blazer, which she removed and slung over one shoulder for snaps. 

Liberty wore amber-hued strap heels and accessorised with gold jewelry. She swept her golden locks back from her features and made a statement with bright red lipstick and a thick sweep of mascara on her lashes.

Liberty was among the early arrivals, along with Good Morning Britain co-anchors Kate and Susanna who looked stunning in cocktail dresses for the event.

Kate – who can’t move for an awards ceremony at the moment, momentously scooping the National Television Award last week for her documentary Finding Derek, about her husband’s battle with COVID-19 – wore a flowing white wrap-dress with delicate sleeves and a floor-length skirt.

Her GMB colleague Susanna wore a figure-hugging red dress with silver heels and wore her dark locks loosely around her shoulders. 

Charlotte Hawkins looked radiant in a layered semi-sheer frock while Georgie Porter donned a tiny emerald mini-dress and Charlie Brookes went all-black at the event.
