GOOD Morning Britain is the staple of weekday morning telly.
But some viewers may be wondering why the ITV breakfast show isn't on today (December 27, 2021).
Why is Good Morning Britain not on today?
Fans waking up this morning will notice the ITV breakfast show isn't on.
ITV bosses pulled flagship show Good Morning Britain off air between Christmas and New Year amid Covid fears – in an unprecedented move.
Telly chiefs made the call amid mounting concerns among staff and presenters.
Instead kids show Hotel Transylvania will be on ITV.
GMB was already set to be off air today and tomorrow (December 28, 2021).
This is because Christmas Day and Boxing Day fall on weekend days so the Bank Holidays are observed on the following two days.
