Richard Madeley gets his shopping in his SOCKS after he's tipped to replace Piers Morgan on GMB

RICHARD Madeley has been spotted bringing in his shopping – without any shoes on.

The telly presenter, who is tipped to take Piers Morgan's empty seat on Good Morning Britain, was snapped as he carried his groceries up to his front door.

Keeping things casual, Richard didn't bother with footwear and instead carefully walked across the pavement in a pair of blue socks.

He then padded up to his front door while clutching a bulging Waitrose carrier bag.

The new sighting of Richard, 64, comes amid rumours that he is being lined up to replace Piers Morgan on GMB.

Following Piers' sudden departure this week, the rumour mill about who may take over his job has gone into overdrive.


Richard is among the contenders, with fans calling for him to be given the job.

The star, who hosted This Morning alongside his wife Judy Finnegan from 1998 to 2001, has previously covered for Piers on the ITV breakfast show.

One fan tweeted: "So where’s the petition to have Richard Madeley replace Piers Morgan?"

Another added: "Give it to Richard Madeley until the end of the season!"

Bookmakers Ladbrokes has even slashed the odds of Richard being given the job to 3/1.

Spokesman Alex Spati said: "Richard Madeley is no stranger to Good Morning Britain.

“And the latest odds suggest he could soon become a permanent fixture on the show."

Meanwhile, earlier today, Piers penned a handwritten note to his "supporters", before sharing it on Instagram.

The 55-year-old star says he lost the plum role for refusing to apologise for "disbelieving Meghan Markle" in an at-times angry message.
