GOOD Morning Britain anchor Ranvir Singh has revealed a new presenter shake-up with her breakfast show colleague leaving the show.
The regular ITV host, 45, told early-morning viewers on Friday that ITV News Editor Paul Brand – who first replaced Richard Madeley on Thursday’s show – would be calling time on his presenting gig today.
The former political correspondent laughed as she told how this meant he would have only hosted two Good Morning Britain episodes.
Ranvir said: “It’s your second and last day today isn’t it?”
She then joked how he “only wanted two early starts in his contract.”
Their banter came before Paul revealed the pair were good pals off-screen.
Early on during Thursday’s Good Morning Britain, lead presenter Kate gushed to her new co-host “thank God you’re here!” as he helped her out with the position of an employee from Network Rail.
It came as the pair were talking about the rail strikes leaving just 20 per cent of train services in the UK operating today.
Kate then told him: “Everyone is thoroughly enjoying Paul Brand being here.
“They are saying you’re a breath of fresh air and you are brilliant – but I will indulge you with those comments later.”
Those at home appeared to agree, with one taking to Twitter to write: “Having Paul Brand on #GMB after 3 days of the Judge Rinder show, is just awesome. More of this please!”

A second put: “I like Paul Brand presenting as he doesn’t make the show about himself. It’s not all about a big personality presenting, it’s about asking the questions that matter #gmb.”
