Good Morning Britain reveal sports presenter Sean Fletcher will take over from Piers Morgan this summer

GOOD Morning Britain has revealed sports presenter Sean Fletcher will take over from Piers Morgan this summer.

The dad-of-two has been the face of numerous popular shows on BBC and ITV and will now take the hot spot while Piers takes time off.

The show slipped in the announcement this morning while talking to Sean about his new show.

Sean, 46, chatted to hosts Adil Ray and Ranvir Singh today about his latest documentary, Sean Fletcher's Welsh Adventure, when Ranvir revealed they would be teaming up on air together in August.

"Aren't you coming back here for a stint in August?" she asked.

And Sean, who sported a new beard and longer hair, confirmed: "I think so with Ranvir I'll have to check my rota!"

Afterwards, Adil pointed out his promotion and said: "It wasn't clear there, but I believe Sean is going to be main hosting as well. That's brilliant."

Sean is an American-British journalist who has become a popular face on ITV and BBC.

He was born in New York City, but grew up living in Zimbabwe and Essex, before starting his journalism career in Cardiff.

He started working on Radio 5 Live and has gone on to host a number of popular shows.

After working at Radio 5 Live, he made the move to BBC 2W in Wales, before moving to BBC News from 2005 to 2011.

He then took a job at Sky Sports News until 2014, and has done a number of projects since, including Good Morning Britain as a sports newsreader and game show Rebound in 2015.

Since October 2015 he was also been a reporter for BBC One’s Countryfile, and has also co-presented BBC Two’s Food Detectives.

He has previously caused a stir on Good Morning Britain when he drew a cheeky picture of Ranvir Singh’s chest in an art challenge and hinted Philippa Tomson would flash her bottom to the nation at Christmas.

Sean is married to Welsh TV producer and director Luned Tonderai, and the pair have two children; Lili and Reuben.

He became an ambassador the Beating Bowel Cancer charity in September 2015, and took part in the London Marathon in 2015 and 2016 to raise money for them.

He also ran the marathon in 2017 for Heads Together and Young Minds UK.
