Piers Morgan snubbed by Good Morning Britain as he's replaced by Ben Shephard after ex-host offered himself up to return

PIERS Morgan was today snubbed by Good Morning Britain after the ex-host offered himself up to grill the government over its coronavirus pandemic failings.

The 56-year-old had revealed he's still under contract with the breakfast show – but was replaced by Ben Shephard alongside his former TV wife Susanna Reid.

The presenter quit the ITV show back in March after refusing to apologise over his comments about Meghan Markle.

Last night he dropped a huge hint that he could return after Dominic Cummings' bombshell revelations.

Piers said: "Wish I was on TV tomorrow morning. The Govt needs torching after this #Cummings testimony."

One fan replied to his tweet with: "The whole nation wish you were on TV tomorrow morning Piers. Perhaps GMB can invite you on as a guest presenter for the one day. That would be amazing."

And the telly star has suggested that it could be on the cards.

Piers replied: "It would.. and I'm still technically under contract to present @GMB…"

Piers co-presented the breakfast programme with Susanna for six years before he decided to quit.

Shortly after he resigned 120,000 fans signed a petition for him to make an epic return.

Vengeful Cummings savaged Prime Minister Boris Johnson today in a jaw-dropping Commons tirade.

His former aide told a Covid inquiry the PM was unfit for office and claimed his dithering killed thousands.

Lifting the lid on pandemic chaos at the heart of No10 last year, he alleged “there wasn’t even a plan to bury all the bodies”.

Yesterday, he spoke of the PM’s lockdown scepticism, planning chaos, internal fights and paralysis — claiming the country was let down as “lions were led by donkeys again and again”.

Mr Cummings spoke out to MPs during an astonishing seven-hour evidence session.

He told a Commons committee: “When the public needed us most, the Government failed.”

He savaged Health Secretary Matt Hancock, who he claimed should have been sacked for lying to the PM that the elderly would be tested before they were released from hospitals into care homes in the early days of the virus.

Last night, both Mr Johnson and Mr Hancock rejected Mr Cummings’ version of events as Westminster reeled from the unprecedented broadside.
