Prime Minister Boris Johnson will be interviewed by GMB presenter Susanna Reid for the first time since he was allegedly hiding in the fridge live on ITV programme.
Good Morning Britain has confirmed Prime Minister Boris Johnson will appear on the ITV show on Tuesday, the first since he and other government ministers were accused of boycotting the series during the coronavirus pandemic.
While other ministers have appeared on the show since then, Johnson hasn’t had an interview on the show in nearly five years – and since he was accused of hiding in a fridge to avoid a GMB reporter. in 2019.
Now, Johnson is sitting down for his first interview on the ITV daytime series since 2017, according to ITV, with it airing live on Tuesday mornings from Downing Street.

It is not disclosed what will be discussed, only presenter Susanna Reid will speak to the Prime Minister.
Her co-star Kate Garraway confirmed the news on Monday’s episode, revealing: “Speaking of Boris Johnson, we’re really going to hear from him once tomorrow.
“Susanna Reid is going to Downing Street and their interview will be live on Good Morning Britain from 6am tomorrow, so we’ll be able to hear exactly what he has to say.”
She added: “It’s been 1,790 days, almost five years, since he last spoke to this show.”
Former GMB presenter Piers Morgan, who went on air during the awkward moment in which the Prime Minister appeared to hide from the cameras in 2019, has since reacted to the news he will finally be joining programme.
Piers commented on Twitter: “He’s out of the fridge! If you’re doing @BorisJohnson rounds – you know where to find me.”
While Piers was on the show, he and Susanna counted daily how long it had been since Tory and Johnson ministers joined the programme.
When Piers left the show last year, many government ministers and MPs began agreeing to return to the series – which has clashed with the TV presenter in the past.
Good Morning Britain airs at 6am on weekdays on ITV.
