Viewers joked that they approved of his "better looking" stand-in on the show earlier today as the TV star left Susanna Reid's side to get behind the camera.
Shortly after 6am, Piers decided he could do a better job of filming the programme.
Charlotte Hawkins, the news reader, suggested: "Have a go!"
The outspoken presenter was then seen getting up and placing himself behind the camera, as Susanna called on cameraman Carl to "take a seat".
Piers could be heard asking, "which camera is this?" as he steered the equipment into focus.
Those watching at home took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the hilarious swap.
One wrote: "#GMB #piersmorgan legend"
Of Piers' replacement, another joked: "definitely an improvement :D"
A third teased: "Haha he's better looking"
Meanwhile, back in the studio entertainment correspondent Richard Arnold shared: "Anchorman Attacks! @piersmorgan jib camera takeover @gmb live on air. Let’s hope he’s tightened the nuts #piersmorgan #gmb #itv #humpday"
It comes after Piers hinted live on air yesterday that Good Morning Britain co-host Susanna has got a new boyfriend.
The TV star jokingly suggested that she was "very, very happy" about something in her personal life.
After commenting on Susanna's posture, Piers, 53, teased: "I know you're happy. You're very, very, very happy."
The 47-year-old star giggled back at him as she claimed she was simply "relaxed".
Later on in the show, the outspoken presenter joked once more: "I don't know what else is going on in your life."
Susanna, who leaned forward at the comment and hid her head in her arms, has three children – Jack, Sam and Finn – with her ex-partner Dominic Cotton.
She is currently single, but said in June that she "wasn't entirely single".
