Viewers were left confused as Pip’s presence was left unexplained.
One viewer said: “Welcome Pip, not sure where you have come from but everyone starts somewhere for the first time. Good luck.”
Another fan typed: “Pip? Who is Pip?!”
And one more shared: “Pip Thomson? Whoooo?!”
Pip revealed she was standing in on GMB ahead of her appearance on Friday.
The 43-year-old from York wrote on Instagram: “I’m in the studio tomorrow (FRI).
“Rousing you from your slumber to bring you the news headlines from 6am on GMB. Kate and Charlotte on from 6.30am. Do join us. Lots to discuss including looming ‘Freedom Day’.”
Pip is a news correspondent who has in fact worked on Good Morning Britain since 2013 – making her one of its longest-serving reporters.
She is usually seen delivering news on locations around the UK.
