Good Morning Britain viewers distracted by ‘different’ Richard Madeley

Richard Madeley made his return to Good Morning Britain on Monday.

And it’s fair to say viewers were a little distracted.

The TV presenter was reunited with co-star Susanna Reid after two months away from the ITV news programme.

Richard, 65, was last seen hosting GMB back in November, prior to his stint on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.

However, his time in camp at Gwrych Castle in Wales towards the end of last year was cut short when he fell ill and had to make a precautionary trip to the local hospital.

While he was given a clean bill of health, ITV said Richard had broken the Covid secure ‘bubble’ created and couldn’t return to camp.

Now, after a trip to America and festive break, the former This Morning host is back on screens.

And he appears to be donning a new look.

Richard and Susanna were back on the show

One tweeted: “#GMB why does Richard have a permanent tan 365 days a year?”

“Has Richard got fake tan on #GMB,” a viewer echoed.

Another said: “Watching GMB and Richard looks so different? I can’t put my finger on it? Is it the tan?”

“Well Richard’s been away on Holiday or someone’s been heavy handed with his make-up. He should be in a take tan advert,” a fourth added.

Taking to Twitter, Susanna shared a selfie with her returning co-host.

“He’s back! @gmb,” she shared alongside the grinning snap.

And the tan comments didn’t escape him there either as one follower wrote: “And orange as ever. Seriously… If you turned the lights off this guy would glow like my childhood dinosaur stickers.”

Kickstarting Monday’s show, Richard welcomed viewers to the show before Susanna cheerily said: “Welcome back to the programme.”

“It’s nice to be back,” Richard replied.

He revealed that he tested positive for Covid on Christmas Day with Susanna talking about her own bout with the virus before Christmas.
