Piers Morgan left ITV in March.
Piers Morgan Claims ITV Want Him back On GMB Despite Meghan Markle Comments.
PIERS MORGAN has claimed that ITV recently approached him to return to Good Morning Britain despite the controversial comments he made about Meghan Markle.
Piers famously walked off the breakfast show during a debate about Meghan and Prince Harry’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey. Mr. Morgan, 56, announced he had stepped down from his role as a presenter the next day.
In his first newspaper interview since dramatically exiting the show, Mr Morgan suggested employees at ITV have reached out to him.
He told The Sun: “They reached out – there have been approaches. Never say never. I have no doubt I could take the ratings back to where I left them – but the doubt is, would anyone be allowed to do it that way again? I was hired to give very strong, honestly held opinions, which I did.
“But in the end, I was asked to apologise for a genuinely held opinion.”
Mr. Morgan added: “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.”
“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,” the outspoken star added.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
