Earlier this week, The Sun exclusively revealed that the former This Morning host appears to be in line for a test run in June.
An ITV insider said: “Piers is irreplaceable and GMB executives accept it, but Richard has his own style that cannot be imitated.
“Like Piers, he’s a trained journalist who knows how to impress guests and gets a decent ‘line’ from the interviewees.
“He shoots from the hip, says what he thinks, and is a really brilliant, lovable person on broadcast – so it’s a lot like a ‘watch this space’.
Richard previously stood for Piers, who quit last month after refusing Sorry for the comments he made about Meghan Markle.
He polls viewers and reveals that he would be interested in the work if it was offered.
The father of the two children said he would “dislike” if he hadn’t considered any job offers from GMB executives who have seen tanks since Piers left.
