On Wednesday, he and his Good Morning Britain co-host Susanna Reid said goodbye to viewers as they signed off for the summer break following a ‘very long year’.

And, Piers Morgan, 55, branded himself a ‘washed up, knackered pathetic excuse for a celebrity’ as he jetted out of Britain, on Sunday, playing on ITV show I’m A Celebrity’s famous tag line as he wrote: ‘Get me outta here!’

The broadcast journalist poked fun at himself as he took to social media to share a photograph of himself wearing a face mask whilst sitting aboard a plane at Heathrow airport.

Piers captioned the snap: ‘I’m a washed up, knackered, pathetic excuse for a celebrity – get me outta here. Bye Britain, it’s been… surreal.’ 

During their final show on Wednesday, Piers and Susanna- who have been playfully nicknamed Shouty and Pouty – shared a montage of their best moments together as they celebrated the past year.

The nickname was first inspired by a troll on Twitter, however Piers has taken ownership of the moniker and claims he ‘loves it’.

Moments before they showed the montage, Piers thanked the team behind the scenes for how hard they have worked on the ‘story of their lifetimes’.

He said: ‘Behind the scenes at GMB there is this enormous team of people all of whom have been working unbelievable hours a lot of self sacrifice…

‘Not seeing families and as we all go off from a break – I think we probably all need a break from each other.’

‘But I want to say a big thank you, I know Susanna will too, to all the GMB behind the scenes. I think we have produced some of the best television journalism that anyone has done in this pandemic, and it’s down to this team behind us.’

Following his sweet words, Piers explained: ‘Our brilliant team upstairs decided to commemorate this – because we thought we look like a couple of hot detectives at the top of our game.’ 

They then showed some hilarious best bits of the presenting duo which  ended with a clip of Susanna saying: ‘You for once need to pipe down.’ 

Piers added: ‘Well we are going to pipe down, because it’s been a very long year and we are going to take a little break.’

He added: ‘We want to thanks viewers for all the feedback you’ve given us, a lot of good feedback or the not so good feedback.

‘But you know what, we take all feedback, that’s why we live in a democracy – we’re allowed to have an opinion,’ Piers joked. 

Susanna playfully added: ‘I want to say a particular thank you to the producers who had to ring the government department and ask if their ministers were coming on the show that day.’ 

Piers also added that the government can just ‘grow a pair, if they want to run the country’. 

Signing off, Piers said: ‘Thank-you to the viewers, have a good summer, try and get a break. It’s been a tough time for everybody. Shouty and Pouty are off.’

Piers and Susanna will return to screens in early September.

He said: 'Behind the scenes at GMB there is this enormous team of people all of whom have been working unbelievable hours a lot of self sacrifice...'
