Which Breakfast TV news programme do you watch?

Some of us wake up and turn on the TV to see what is happening in the world first thing in the morning,  whilst others switch on their tablet and browse the news headlines online in bed.  And many eat their breakfast whilst scanning the newspaper printed edition.

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And for ITV, getting the right recipe for success during the breakfast slot has been a problem for the past five years. They keep changing their studio layout, seating plans and more frequently, their presenters!

Now they have turned to Piers Morgan to try to attract some new viewers. Ever since GMTV was ditched, they have been searching for the right ingredients to challenge BBC Breakfast. The former Daily Mirror editor and CNN presenter said the ITV show, regularly beaten by its BBC rival Breakfast, has had “a very tempestuous period” since its 2014 launch thanks to an “explosion of news channels.”

The BBC currently pulls in about 1.5 million viewers on average each morning and Good Morning Britain is languishing at about 600,000.

Are you a fan of breakfast television? Do you have a preference to the channel you tune in to? Are you partial to a particular presenter or team of presenters? Do you flick between channels? Or don’t you watch breakfast TV at all?

Always watch BBC if I'm not at work. Not watched GMTV for years - tabloid TV I think. I was really surprised when Suzannah left the BBC to join them. I like to keep up with world news even though it's pretty depressing these days!

I dislike them all. The reporting is bad and often sensationalist they have become like the tabloids on TV. BBC included.

ITV although not sure about Piers Morgan he needs to read the news not offer all his opinions about it and he dominates the rest of the team who are much better looking then him!

I stopped watching ITV when they ditched GMTV in favour of the awful duo of Adrian Chiles and her. That was a disastrous move and , although the powers that be soon realised what a mistake they had made, I have no intention of returning to them. I tend to watch the BBC news channel now as they don't have tedious celebrities and even more tedious adverts.

Piers Morgan, forget it! So self opinionated and full of himself, if anything likely to encourage more people to switch to BBC!

I agree with most of you the Piers Morgan is NOT the man to get all of us BBC lovers to go to the dark side in the morning. I find him boring and obnoxious and could not stand to listen to his droning voice any time of the day.

I can't believe that Piers Morgan is returning to GMB - I really didn't enjoy it when he was there for a couple of weeks in the summer! I really like Ben Shepherd and Kate Garroway together and even Suzanne has grown on me. I find GMB more light hearted and less intense than BBC Breakfast, however I may just be switching to the Beeb if I get too irritated by Mr Morgan! I often stay tuned for Lorraine as well - she seems so sincere and jolly!

Yes the problem with Piers is he is far too opinionated! Now thats true of most Brits and is a good thing but he is just a bit to over the top. He should be reporting news not telling us what he thinks about everything!

At least BBC Breakfast is full of very factual news whereas ITV is a bit "celebrity" based but have to say Kate on ITV is an incredibly professional presenter.
