GOOD Morning Britain fans were all saying the same thing as Richard Madeley was absent from Monday's episode.

Richard's co-host Susanna Reid appeared alongside Adil Ray in the first show of the week.

And viewers at home were left convinced that 66-year-old Richard's absence confirmed rumours of a feud between him and Susanna, 51.

One wrote: "Beginning to look like Richard Madeley and Susanna Reid have fallen out."

And another post directed at Adil, 48, read: "This alleged feud between Madeley and Reid is really benefitting you work wise, eh Adil?"

Susanna today returned to the show after having a week off.

For months viewers claim to have spotted underlying tension between Susanna and Richard.

The broadcasting duo often disagree on issues being debated, with neither shy in voicing their opinion.

One likened the heavy atmosphere on set to the aftermath of a parental row in a family home, adding: "That's how it feels - every day."

Another claimed Susanna had flashed Richard "disgusting" looks and felt it was rude.

While a third noticed Susanna shushing Richard when he spouted a French phrase.

Earlier this year feud rumours intensified after the pair failed to pose together at the BAFTA Television Awards.

Richard was seen arriving on the red carpet separately from the rest of the GMB team and his ITV co-star Susanna.

They failed to share a celebratory photo after their groundbreaking interview with former ISIS member Shamima Begum was nominated for a gong.
