The English broadcaster, who left the talk show in March following his comments on Meghan Markle, believes that he could ‘take the ratings back to where I left them’ after a slump in viewing figures.
AceShowbiz –Piers Morgan has teased a possible return to “Good Morning Britain“. Claiming that ITV bosses want him back to the show following his exit over his controversial comment about Meghan Markle, the former host said, “never say never.”
The 56-year-old made the revelation in an interview with The Sun. “They reached out – there have been approaches. Never say never,” he pointed out. “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,” the outspoken English presenter went on sharing. “But in the end I was asked to apologize for a genuinely held opinion.”
“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,” he continued. “As the Americans say, they reached out – there have been approaches to test the water in the wake of their obvious ratings issues.”
Piers admitted to feeling “sad” that the show’s rating had fallen down rapidly. “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,” he stated, before stressing, “but never say never.”
Piers left “Good Morning Britain” in March after he said he didn’t believe Meghan’s suicidal claims in her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey. “I don’t believe a word she says, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report,” he said at that time.
The broadcaster, however, had no regrets about his comments. Following his exit from the show, he wrote on Twitter, “On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview. I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t. Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on. Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more time with my opinions.”
