Piers Morgan drops GMB return hint as he says he’s in talks about TV comeback

Piers Morgan has teased his huge television comeback after quitting Good Morning Britain earlier this year.

The 56-year-old presenter quit the ITV breakfast show in March this year after appearing as host for five years.

He appeared on Fox News in American recently and told host Sean Hannity about his possible return.

Piers said: "Well, I'm definitely having some very interesting conversations Sean, as you can probably imagine.

"There are lots of people that wouldn't mind a piece of the action with somebody who trebled the ratings on that morning show in five years which is what we did."

He also discussed his sudden departure from GMB, which took place after an on-air spar with weather presenter Alex Beresford over Meghan Markle.

He dismissed the Duchess of Sussex's claims she had suicidal thoughts that were ignored by Buckingham Palace staff.

The former newspaper editor added: "There was a weird surreal kind of day on the day I left where, having reached a ratings high, normally you would get invited to a board room and presented with a carriage clock but I got invited to either apologise to Meghan Markle for disbelieving her or leave the building so I decided to leave the building."

Piers recently revealed that ITV bosses have approached him to return to GMB.

He told The Sun last month: "I have had some quite random third-party feelers put out to see if I would consider a return to the show.

"I don’t want to say on the record who, but a pretty close third-party.

"As the Americans say, they reached out — there have been approaches to test the water in the wake of their obvious ratings issues.

"It makes me sad to see all the hard work we did to beat the BBC in viewing numbers evaporate so fast. It’s their problem to work out but never say never."

It has also been reported that Piers has been having "good conversations" with GB News chairman Andrew Neil about joining his news channel team.

Andrew, 72, explained told Radio Times in a recent interview: "Yes, we have had conversations, but not about breakfast.

"All my indications are that Piers doesn’t want another breakfast show. But I think if he does any more British news TV it’s more likely to be with us than with anybody else.

"We’re in good discussions, we continue to stay in touch and he knows that we feel that he would be a great addition to the line-up."

Piers' seat on Good Morning Britain has been filled by the likes of Adil Ray, Ranvir Singh, Richard Madeley, Bill Turnbull and Alistair Campbell in recent weeks.
