Piers Morgan has hinted that he might be leaving Good Morning Britain very soon.
On today’s show (October 8), the GMB host told Susanna Reid and Charlotte Hawkins that his three-year anniversary of presenting the show was quickly approaching after he joined in 2015.
He then casually dropped in that it might mean he leaves the early morning show soon, adding: “I never normally stick around for longer than around four years so make the most of it.”
Piers has previously discussed his plans to exit the show, exclusively telling Digital Spy he would stay “until the end of next year because I am contractually obliged to do it until then”.
“Then he’s open to negotiations,” Susanna added.
Piers had recently announced that he had signed a new two-year deal with ITV, and was sticking around alongside Susanna.
Neil Thompson, editor of Good Morning Britain, discussed what would happen to the show if Piers decided to jump ship.
“Theoretically, we really hope he doesn’t leave,” he told Digital Spy. “You build the show around people you’ve got.
“What’s really important is the show is an amazing show. It was amazing in 2014 when we launched it and it’s amazing today. It will always be an amazing show and we hope for as long as possible it’s an amazing show with Piers and Susanna.
“If Piers was to leave then we would find somebody else who was also amazing. We wouldn’t go and look for someone who is like Piers, because Piers is unique.
“We’d look for somebody else who is unique and typically a great journalist, who has great empathy for the world, and for what people think and care about, who is an articulate broadcaster, who thinks on their feet, who listens to the debate rather than just look at the questions they’ve been given by the producer in the order, and who has a personality.”
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
