Piers Morgan announces celeb-packed Cabinet amid calls to make him PM

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan has revealed who he would like to serve in his Cabinet if he becomes Prime Minister.

The stellar line-up includes Sir Captain Tom Moore as Defence Secretary, footballer Marcus Rashford as Education Secretary and GMB's own Dr Hilary Jones as Health Secretary.

Holding up our newspaper during Wednesday's show, Piers, 55, read out our apology for creating a monster, before adding: "Some might quibble with the word created.

"There is a double page spread. They think it is on – Piers worth a punt."

After Susanna Reid noted our admission we may have given her an excruciating couple of hours listening to Piers debate his political dreams, Piers continued: "It wasn't harrowing at all.

"If Boris and Trump can get in then don't you think that that I can."

Laughing, Piers tuned to Susanna: "I would have you in my Cabinet."

However, while she may be happy sitting alongside Piers on the daily basis to wake up the nation, it seems that working under him would be a step too far.

"He did things wrong and I want to hear this government admitting it."

Letting rip, Piers went on to rage about the handling of the second wave: "We let it just run around for a week, two weeks, by this time that it was everywhere.

"Every single step of the way Boris Johnson has been too late and too dithering and too keen to please and listen to people in his ear.

"We were not prepared at all.

"We were distracted by Brexit and we were distracted by Boris Johnson's private life."
