Adil Ray has confirmed that he will be filling in for Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain during for the next few weeks.
The 46-year-old, who also hosts new ITV show Lingo, and has been favourite to replace Piers permanently following his exit last month will host the show in April.
Piers, 56, sensationally stormed off GMB following a row with co-star Alex Beresford over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's landmark interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Alex, who Piers claims is the only GMB star who hasn't contacted him following his exit, called the presenter "pathetic" as he walked off set.

Taking to Twitter this evening, Adil wrote: "Some news for you….I will be co hosting @gmb throughout the whole of April Mon to Weds, starting this Monday with @kategarraway and with @susannareid100 after the hols.
"I would love for you to make it your daily wake up if you fancy it! #goodmorningbritain."
Adil couldn't resist a joke at Piers' expense when he returned to the show last month following the controversial presenter's exit.
Joining Susanna Reid, he quipped: "Great to be back. Have I missed anything?"
This comes ahead of Piers' first TV interview since quitting GMB, which will see him appear on Tucker Carlson's show on Fox Nation in the United States.
In a tweet to announce his appearance, Piers used a Meghan Markle line in a stinging riposte, saying about him quitting GMB: "Was I silent, or was I silenced?"
Piers tweeted: "On Monday, I will give my first interview since leaving Good Morning Britain to @TuckerCarlson on his new @foxnation show, with highlights that evening on his @FoxNews show. Was I silent, or was I silenced?"
The 51-year-old presenter had previously announced that he will host the one-hour interview with father-of-four Piers on Monday 5 April.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday, Tucker shared a clip where he confirmed that Piers will be speaking to him.
"So, Piers Morgan was banished from television for asking a simple question: how is it that the most privileged people in our society get away with posing as the most oppressed?" Tucker said.
