Good Morning Britain has suffered a decline in figures since outspoken presenter Piers Morgan famously quit the show in March. Almost six months have passed without Piers co-hosting the ITV news programme alongside Susanna Reid, with many viewers feeling it’s not quite the same without him. But the 56-year-old journalist has been tipped at making a comeback by the end of 2021. 

The controversial journalist presented Good Morning Britain for six years and became infamous for his regular outbursts, often leaving Susanna rolling her eyes. 

Piers’ departure followed an on-air row with weather presenter Alex Beresford who criticised his colleague for “continuing to trash” Meghan Markle, which prompted Piers to storm off the set. 

ITV bosses later announced Piers was leaving the programme after Ofcom said it was investigating his comments about Meghan Markle after receiving 41,000 complaints.  

In wake of her interview with Oprah Winfrey, Piers has refused to apologise for his comments and has continued to call her ‘princess Pinocchio’.

However, according to the bookings, the odds of Piers returning to the show before the end of the year currently stands at 4/5.

“It has now been five months since Piers Morgan left Good Morning Britain and our betting suggests he could make a sensational return to the breakfast show on ITV,” Coral’s John Hill said. 

“We make him odds-on to be back in his seat before the year is out.” 

Following his exit, Piers was amused to receive a nomination for the National Television Awards for Best Presenter on Good Morning Britain. 

As well as a possible return to Good Morning Britain, Piers could also be part of the next series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! in November. 

The upcoming series will be filmed in Wales for a second year running due to coronavirus travel restrictions. 

The show will still be presented by Geordie duo Ant and Dec, who have hosted the ITV reality show since 2002. 

But the odds of Piers appearing in I’m A Celeb has been cut to just 8/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Piers Morgan has become something of a stranger to our screens these days, but the odds suggest that could all change in the next few months, with an I’m A Celeb stint potentially on the cards.”

One fan tweeted who missed Pier tweeted: “Please bring back @piersmorgan on GMB it’s painful watching these presenters interview people and asking such ludicrous questions.”

Another tweeted: “ As much as it pains me to say it, GMB should bring back Piers Morgan. He would be eating [Dominic] Raab for breakfast by now.”

Another fan said: “Love him or hate him Piers Morgan is the only interviewer that politicians are scared of GMB should be begging him to return.”

“Well can you get a shift on Piers and get back on #GMB and ask him then? It’s [gone] to the Dogs since you left! #TeamPiers #YourCountryNeedsYou,” a fourth added.

The current presenters of the show are Susanna Reid, Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway, and the current newsreaders are Kate, Charlotte Hawkins and Ranvir Singh.

Good Morning Britain airs on ITV 1 on weekdays between 6am and 9am.
