But this means the make-up artists aren’t able to come in, leaving Piers to do it himself.
He told GMB: “This struggle just got real. I just had to do my own makeup.
“It’s a weird thing, isn’t it? You have to get all the bits, remember the foundation and god knows what else is going on.
“I have no idea if my head is camera ready or not and you know what? In the general scheme of things, I don’t care.”
Later on he revealed people were giving him stick on Instagram and Twitter, but the only person sticking up for his face was his mum.
While Piers has been fulfilling his journalistic duties on the show, he has been taking time out to be cheeky to his guests – in particular Carol Vorderman yesterday.
The 59-year-old star appeared on Good Morning Britain to reveal how she is doing her bit for the people during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The former Countdown favourite revealed that she was going to launch a “maths school for grown ups” on YouTube next week.
Piers suggestively asked: “Now you’re talking, are you going to wear a mathematical uniform for this?
“One of the ones adults might enjoy, you know Carol?”
Keeping her composure, Carol quipped later in the chat: “I’ll tell you what I am not going to do, Piers, which is probably what you would like me to do, it’s teach you how to write ‘boobs’ on a calculator.”
Piers continued to be cheeky, replying that he will still “definitely” be tuning in to Carol’s classes.
