Richard Madeley admits his Good Morning Britain future is unclear: ‘We’ll see what happens’

Richard Madeley has revealed that he doesn’t know how long he will remain on Good Morning Britain.

The former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me out of Here contestant joined Susanna Reid to present the breakfast show after Piers Morgan quit back in 2021.

Richard, 65, is part of a rotation of presenters brought in to replace Piers, and he alternates with other famous faces such as Adil Ray, Richard Bacon and Martin Lewis.

Today (Monday 25 April) Richard presenter the show solo from the studio, while Susanna hosted segments live from the Ukrainian border in Poland.

And in a recent appearance on Kate Thornton’s White Wine Question Time podcast, he opened up about why he took on the challenge of stepping in for Piers after a career spanning over four decades with his wife Judy Finnigan.

Richard explained: "In terms of what I do on my own, which at the moment is Good Morning Britain, although who knows how long that will go on for.

"I do it month to month at the moment and I'm very happy to. I quite like operating at that level. I've had my main career curve. I'm not seeking another huge career arch. We'll see what happens, but I enjoy it, I enjoy doing it."

TV power couple Richard and Judy first met while doing a show together in Granada in 1982, and have been in a relationship ever since.

The duo were the face of This Morning for 23 years until 2001, before moving on to host a self-titled show for another eight years.

Judy has now retired to enjoy life, while Richard continues to appear on morning television.

In the same podcast, Richard also reflected on how much This Morning had changed since he and his wife left the show.

He explained: “This Morning is a hugely successful show today, but it's hugely different show to when Judy and I were on it, because Judy and I were trained journalists.

"We brought our newsroom experience with us and I'm not saying this made it any better, but it was more of a newsier show when we were doing it because our journalistic interests were piqued all the time on breaking stories."

This Morning is now co-hosted Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby four days a week, while Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary present on Fridays.
