Piers Morgan WON’T return to Good Morning Britain because he plans to go ‘global’ with ‘big new project’


PIERS Morgan has denied rumours that he would go back to Good Morning Britain – and has signed up for a “big global project”.

The former ITV show host sensationally quit on air in March after criticising the Duchess of Sussex over her Oprah interview.

He celebrated yesterday after a media watchdog confirmed he was within his rights to give his opinions on Meghan Markle.

Ofcom made a landmark ruling that cleared him this week, with some ITV staff expecting him to return.

The hit show has seen their ratings plummet since his departure, with viewers missing his on screen back and forth with co-host Susanna Reid.

But sources have claimed that there are no current plans to bring him back, with the presenter, 56, saying he will not return.

He jokingly quipped online, “Do I get my job back” after the ruling was made public.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, he said: “I put that post on social media asking if I’d get my job back to prove a point.

“I wouldn’t go back, not without a public apology and I’m not going to
get one.

“I’ve got much bigger things coming up. The future is exciting. The next project is global, it’s big.

“I can’t say what but people are going to hear about it within the next few weeks.”


Piers stepped down from hosting the programme after saying he didn’t believe Meghan was telling the truth in the bombshell Oprah chat.

He also slammed his former bosses for a statement they released after Ofcom’s ruling.

ITV said co-star Susanna Reid, as well as “programme makers”, had provided the “balance and context” that was “key in mitigating against the potential for harm and offence caused by Piers”.

He said in a furious tweet: “Hmmm, ITV have just put out a statement saying I only won the Ofcom case against Princess Pinocchio because my colleagues expressed different opinions to mine.

“That’s not what the Ofcom report says in its conclusion. I suggest ITV reads it again.”

The watchdog said the comments made by Piers were “potentially harmful and offensive”.

However, they ultimately ruled that GMB was not in breach the broadcasting code.

Piers claims Meghan had written directly to ITV chief Dame Carolyn McCall demanding “his head on a plate”.

The royal complained to ITV after Piers said he didn’t believe her claims to have had issues with her mental health, or that she was suicidal when pregnant with Archie.

In the interview, Meghan told how life as a royal became unbearable and she “didn’t want to be alive anymore”.

But speaking during a show broadcast the day after the chat aired, Piers ranted: “I don’t believe a word she says, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe a weather report if she read it.

“The fact she has expressed an onslaught against our Royal Family is contemptible.”

Piers stepped away from GMB after refusing to apologise to the Duchess.

His diatribe received the most Ofcom complaints in a decade.
