Piers Morgan has announced his return to ITV.
This comes after Morgan was widely criticised for his comments about the Duchess of Sussex and her mental health, ahead of her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry, which aired in the UK last Monday.
The next day, Morgan stormed off the GMB set following a heated exchange between himself and co-host, Alex Beresford.
Beresford called his colleague out for “trashing” Meghan Markle, asking him to “be aware of the power of your words.”
On the evening of March 9, ITV then announced that Piers Morgan had “decided to leave” the morning show.
Ofcom said the episodes of the ITV programme that aired on 8 and 9 March had sparked 57,121 complaints – making it the most complained-about TV moment since Shilpa Shetty’s Celebrity Big Brother appearance in 2007.
Morgan insists he’s the victim of “cancel culture” and has clapped back at the Ofcom report, saying the “majority of Britons agree with me.”
Morgan’s ITV Return
Piers Morgan has announced that he is returning to ITV for another episode of Life Stories. Taking to Twitter this afternoon, the former Good Morning Britain host tweeted: “Reports of my ITV demise have been greatly exaggerated…. I’m back already,” along with a preview clip of tonight’s show.
While some fans have shared their excitement for the latest instalment of Life Stories, whereby Morgan’s celebrity guests are grilled on the more personal details of their lives, many have met the journalist’s post with disdain.
One user wrote: “I see tonight at 9pm on TV I have a choice between The Secret Life of Sewage, Piers Morgan’s Life Stories and Taskmaster. Since the first two are basically the same thing, I’ll watch Taskmaster.”
Another added: “We already knew you’d be back. Your whole career is a prime example of white privilege!”
In tonight’s pre-recorded episode of Life Stories, Loose Women star Coleen Nolan is set to talk about her showbiz career, as part of the Irish singing group, The Nolan Sisters.
The preview clip shows Nolan discussing meeting the late TV host and paedophile, Jimmy Savile, while filming for Top of the Pops.
She describes him as a “dirty old man” and claims that during the recording when she was aged fourteen, Savile asked her to go back to his hotel room with him.
Coleen, 56, also opens up about her sister Bernie’s battle with breast cancer and how she had “convinced” the family she was going to live throughout her treatment.
Bernie sadly died in 2013 and sisters Anne and Linda have also been diagnosed with cancer.
Piers Morgan’s Life Stories with Coleen Nolan airs on ITV tonight at 9pm.
