Erron Gordon, Good Morning Britain director, announced that today was his last day after announcing that after 13 years at ITV in August, he would be leaving.
Charlotte Hawkins said that she was in tears after the last Good Morning Britain show with Erron G. Gordon.
This comes 13 years after he had announced his retirement from the channel.
He announced in September that he would be joining Piers Moran on his new show.
Erron tweeted this morning that it was his last show. He also included a video of Charlotte present: “It’s my last show with the legend and @GMB OG @CharlotteHawkns also @timcarrfm is floor managing as you can see here.”
Charlotte hosted today and admitted to being emotional about the thought of hosting his final show.
She replied, “Let us find out what’s going with the weather. Good morning, Laura [Tobin]. I must confess that I am a little teary this morning.
“It’s a sad one because it’s my last show with our fabulous director Erron who, as you know, is leaving this week. So, emotional here, but are you going to be able to cheer us up with the weather this morning?
“Charlotte, I will try my best! Laura responded.
Erron tweeted the announcement in the summer: “Personal News, After 13 years at @ ITV and 7 as the Series Director of @GMB I am leaving the programme at the end of the year to take on an exciting new challenge.
“I’ve had an amazing time working with a brilliant team in front of and behind the camera and I am so proud of the programme I helped launch in 2014.
“I’ve had some incredible opportunities @ITV; launching @itvpeston, directing the prime time leaders debates, #LifeStories & exclusive interviews with @piersmorgan & President Trump as well as travelling the world. Not forgetting somehow getting a part in Bridget Jones Baby!”
Piers took to Twitter at the time in response to his exit: “The very best TV directors thrive off unpredictability, spontaneity & flying by the seat of their pants.
“Because Erron was always so happy to have me around, I loved working with him. A brilliant talent and ferociously loyal colleague & friend. @GMB has suffered a terrible loss.”
