Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid have been banned from having a late-night 'Good Morning Britain' festive party - and have been told to have a lunch time bash instead.

Bosses at ITV have reportedly arranged a mid-day boozy lunch for the hosts and their crew to celebrate the festive season this year because they don't want them to rock up to present the show the next morning still intoxicated form the night before and on poor form.

And they're not the only ones to be slapped with the ban as Lorraine Kelly has admitted her morning show has been with the same treatment this year - but she doesn't mind.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, she said: "We are getting a quiet Christmas luncheon at work this year - no nights out.

"I think it's because some of us can't stay out anymore. I know we are having a Secret Santa and a few parlour games too. I'm sure it'll be fun."

But, despite the rules put in place, the 58-year-old host is convinced there will be a few people from the team that will try to push their luck and continue the party into the night.

She added: "I'm sure there will be a couple that will try and carry on the party until late."

Meanwhile, Piers - who is known for causing controversy on screen and teasing his co-host Susanna on a daily basis - recently threatened to ruin Christmas by releasing an album inspired by his impression of Johnny Depp.

He said last month: "I'm missing a trick here. Bradley Walsh, Jason Manford, Nick Knowles. I'll do my Johnny Depp voice.

"You know what, I think I'm going to do it. If they can all do it."
