Piers Morgan vows he 'won't be cancelled for long' as he hints at new job offers

Piers Morgan has teased the job offers that have come his way since his dramatic Good Morning Britain exit - insisting he "won't be cancelled for long."

ITV announced last month that firebrand Piers would no longer co-host the breakfast show with Susanna Reid after comments he made about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sparked a furious backlash.

Among his remarks, he cast doubt on the veracity on a number of claims made by the couple, including Meghan's that she had struggled with suicidal thoughts.

And despite the rage directed at him, Piers has characteristically refused to budge.

He's recently been doing the rounds on US television, first speaking to Fox Nation's Tucker Carlson, and last night to Extra's Billy Bush.

During his chat with Billy, Piers warned the "cancel culture mob" that he won't be gone forever, and that he'll return with a "fun and exciting" new project.

Piers admitted he isn't sure what this is yet, but feels "gratified" that he's had a number of job offers from both the US and his home turf.

One rumour suggested that controversial Piers is at the centre of a multi-millions bidding war between media giant Rupert Murdoch, and GB News chairman Andrew Neil, though nothing has of yet been confirmed.

He told Extra TV last night: "I'm going to take my time and then hopefully come back with something fun, exciting, and my message to the cancel culture mob is, 'I wouldn't celebrate too long. I don't think I'll be cancelled much longer.'"

Piers' final GMB show - which aired on March 9 - has since become the most complained-about TV episode ever.

It saw him clash with colleague Alex Beresford over his coverage of Harry and Meghan, during which he stormed off set.

That evening, ITV confirmed Piers has left presenting duties.

The morning after, he stood by his comments, telling reporters that conversations with the broadcaster had been "amicable."
