Piers Morgan Having 'Good Conversations' About Joining GB News, Says Andrew Neil

Don't expect to see him in a familiar breakfast slot, though.

Piers Morgan is having “good conversations” about joining GB News, according to channel boss Andrew Neil.

There has been mounting speculation about whether the presenter would join the new current affairs network following his departure from Good Morning Britain earlier this year.

Andrew has now hinted that it could be a likely outcome, although fans shouldn’t expect to see him in a familiar breakfast slot.

Speaking to the Radio Times, Andrew said: “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.”

The line-up for GB News, which launches this weekend, already features the likes of former Sky Sports presenter Kirsty Gallacher, ex-BBC newsreader Simon McCoy and former Sun journalist Dan Wootton.

Ofcom later confirmed it would be launching an investigation under its harm and offence rules after over 40,000 complaints were made – a figure that has since grown to over 57,000, making it the most complained-about incident in Ofcom history.

Just hours before Piers’ exit, he also made headlines when he stormed off the GMB set during a row about the Duchess with his colleague Alex Beresford – something Piers later admitted he regretted doing.

The presenter recently claimed he has been approached about a potential return to the ITV show by a third party.
