The TV host said he would be taking a break until he receives the test results.
"On medical advice, and out of an abundance of caution for a mild symptom that arose in past 48hrs, I’ve had a test for COVID-19 and so won’t be working on @GMB until I get the result back, which should be tomorrow," he wrote.
Piers has become an integral part of the coronavirus coverage in the UK and has received mixed reactions for his aggressive style when communicating with top government officials.
