Good Morning Britain's Ranvir Singh gets replaced in the middle of the show

"I can barely keep my eyes open."

Good Morning Britain host Ranvir Singh has been replaced mid-show due to a severe case of hay fever.

On today's (March 29) episode of ITV's breakfast programme, the presenter joined hosts Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley to discuss the day's hottest news — which, of course, included the aftermath of the infamous Oscars slap.

Singh then opened up about suffering from hay fever, an annoying burden shared by many during spring, with symptoms ranging from constant sneezing and runny nose to itchy, watery eyes.

While it wasn't clear at first whether Singh was going to stay on the show, it was later revealed that she had been replaced for the day by presenter Louisa James.

"It's five past seven, we have the rest of the day's news now, and it's no longer Ranvir," Reid told viewers.

"Louisa, you've stepped in. How is Ranvir doing?" she asked.

James reassured viewers, saying: "Ranvir is fine. Well, I think she's going to be fine. We think she's had a bit of an allergic reaction, she's got a bit of a sore eye. But she's just resting."

"It's certainly the worst case of hay fever that I've ever seen," Madeley added.

Singh posted on Twitter earlier this morning to share her "painful" hay fever symptoms, explaining she could barely keep her eyes open.

"Anyone else got the worst most painful stinging hay fever they've ever had? I can barely keep my eyes open. If there was a vaccine for this I'd sign up asap," the presenter wrote.

After Singh had to step out of GMB, viewers replied to her tweet, saying they miss her.

"Get better soon Ranvir...missing you on the show already! All the best," one viewer wrote, while another said: "Hope you feel better soon! Hay fever is the worst."
