Ben Shephard has quit GMTV, according to newspaper reports.
Ben, who has been a main presenter on GMTV for the past five years, will stay with the network until the end of the summer.
A GMTV source told the ‘Daily Mail’: “Ben has resigned. Obviously, he felt it was untenable to stay and wait to see what was happening with his job.
“It was clear that he felt that he had to jump before he was pushed. Ben is still a face for ITV and I?m sure he will front other shows for them.”
This report comes just days after Adrian Chiles signs a 4-year-deal with ITV to front GMTV and ITV’s World Cup 2010 coverage.
