Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan has fronted the ITV show for the past five years alongside his co-presenter Susanna Reid. The broadcaster has now addressed his future plans on the programme.
The 55-year-old spoke candidly with Chris Evans, 52, about his new book, Wake Up.
The conversation swiftly moved on to his time on Good Morning Britain, as the presenter admitted he is unsure how long he will remain on the show due to the current “environment”.
“I had far more interaction with the British public than I had with Americans – I actually enjoy the morning show [GMB] more than I ever enjoyed CNN or America’s Got Talent but for that reason,” Piers explained.
He opened up about his previous years on American television and revealed that he missed the interaction with his family and the British public, because they couldn’t watch those programmes.
Chris asked: “You might be there [GMB] for awhile then, by the sounds of it?”
Piers replied: “I’m definitely there until the end of next year. I’ve got a contract until the end of 2021.
“But who the hell knows in this environment what’s going to happen after that?”
The Virgin Radio host cheekily attempted to poach the ITV presenter as he urged him to join his radio station.
“Because I know you’ve had the conversation that they would love you here at Times radio?” Chris asked.
The GMB host chuckled: “Everyone would love me.”
“I think you’d be really good on it Piers,” the radio DJ continued.
“On radio?” Piers quizzed, before adding: “Well, I’ve watched you and you’re a very, very good template of somebody who was brilliant on television.”

“And then you took a view to go on the radio and then mastered it. Because you’re a master of talk actually.”
Piers admitted he had no plans to move into radio just yet because he enjoys working on television.
He remarked: “I’m not a master of [radio] and being able to do what you do.”
Chris interjected: “You’re not doing badly.”
Piers continued: “It’s a different discipline but I like TV. Apart from my stupendous ego, I like to be recognised and all the trimmings that come with it.
“Radio is a real art form. And those that I love who do it well and no smoke, but you [Chris] are one of the best. It’s a real art form and you’ve got to be ready to do that and commit to it.”
The ITV favourite added that he doesn’t want to do “too many things” as he has various other projects.
“I do my Life Stories, crime documentaries, the columns,” Piers said. “To do radio properly, you have to commit to it.”
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV at 6am.
