PIERS Morgan has revealed that he is looking for a “new TV wife” for his upcoming job – which will be “bigger than Good Morning Britain”.
We caught up with the 56-year-old star at last night’s The Sun’s Who Cares Wins Awards, and he coyly teased details on what he’s doing next.
Piers sensationally quit GMB back in March following a row over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Oprah interview, but he insists that he is onto bigger and better things.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, the TV favourite kept his cards close to his chest when quizzed on his new role, but shared: “Have patience, it won’t be long. It’s a lot bigger than GMB.”
He added: “It’s not fighting talk, it’s just a lot bigger. You’ll see soon.”
Piers also referenced his former co-star Susanna Reid, quipping: “You never know, I might be auditioning for new wives…”
The former colleagues reunited for the first time since his shock exit this evening at the star-studded TRIC Awards, where Piers also took home the gong for Best News Presenter.
And it has been a busy week of reunions for the star, who cuddled up to Kate Garraway at our event yesterday – also seeing her for the first time since March.
Piers shared a sweet photo to his Instagram page at the time, gushing in the caption: “Reunited! First time we’ve seen each other since I left @gmb #whocareswins.”
The pair were in great company at the ceremony, with David Beckham, Prince William, and Boris Johnson also on the guestlist to honour our NHS heroes.
After a hard year and a half battling through the pandemic, it’s never been more important to show our thanks to NHS workers and those who helped in the fight against the pandemic.
