Piers Morgan has made a 'Good Morning Britain'-themed April Fool's Day joke
Piers Morgan has joked he's answering the "nation's prayers" by returning to 'Good Morning Britain'.
The 55-year-old TV presenter abruptly quit the ITV show following his controversial comments about the Duchess of Sussex, but Piers took to Twitter on April Fool's Day (01.04.21) to joke about making a dramatic comeback.
He wrote on the micro-blogging platform: "UPDATE: Following the Archbishop of Canterbury's confirmation that Meghan Markle was talking a load of old flannel in her Oprah interview, ITV just offered me my @GMB job back & I've decided to accept. The nation's prayers have been answered. See you Monday! (sic)"
Piers accused the Duchess of lying in her tell-all TV interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The controversial star suggested he'd been vindicated after the Archbishop of Canterbury clarified that the Duke and Duchess' legal wedding took place on May 19, 2018 – and not three days before, as the Duchess previously claimed.
Piers recently admitted he quit 'Good Morning Britain' after ITV bosses urged him to apologise.
He shared: "ITV executives suggested to me that I should now issue an apology to calm things down.
"But I don't believe Meghan, so why would I apologise?
"As I mused over this conundrum, 'GMB's ratings for yesterday came in and were the highest in our history, breaking a new record we set only last week.
"The show's on fire, in every sense.
"But the flames are now raging uncontrollably towards me.
"To compound my growing twitchiness, I got a text from my old foe Jeremy Clarkson that read: 'I am completely on your side.'
"Oh s***. This must be more serious than I thought. Mid-afternoon, Kevin Lygo, ITV's Director of Television, who I'd spoken to several times since yesterday, rang to say we were now 'on the cliff edge' and either I apologised, or I would have to leave 'GMB'."
