Piers Morgan revealed he was still under contract with Good Morning Britain as he wanted to return to television to deal with the fallout from Dominic Cummings’ explosive allegations against the government.
On Wednesday morning, Cummings, Boris Johnson’s former aide, testified before the Commons health and social care and science and technology committees in a lengthy hearing.
In it, in addition to saying that the Prime Minister considered the coronavirus to be “the new swine flu”, even alleging that he offered to be injected live on television, Cummings said that Health Secretary Matt Hancock “should have been fired” for a whole series of failures.
Reacting to the damning accusations, Piers tweeted: “I want to sincerely apologize for the way I have held the government accountable during this pandemic.

It is clear from Cummings’ shocking testimony that I should have gone much further. Sorry.”
He later added: “I would love to be on TV tomorrow morning. The government needs to be set on fire after that. #Cummings testimony.”
It was Piers’ response to a fan’s response that caused a big backlash. The subscriber tweeted: “The whole nation wants you to be on TV tomorrow morning Piers. Maybe GMB can invite you as a guest presenter for a day. That would be amazing.”
And Piers, who left GMB in March after storming an argument with Alex Beresford, then replied: “It would be … and I’m still technically under contract to present @GMB. ”
While GMB producer Erron Gordon liked the tweet, there was no room for Piers behind GMB’s desk on Thursday, with former crime presentation partner Susanna Reid alongside Ben Shephard.
Eager for his return, one fan responded: “Yeah, come on @GMB I haven’t looked at him since he left. Like Piers or not, we listened to the drama and watched the politicians squirm. ”
Also including the GMB handle in their tweet, another wrote: “Wake up ITV! Piers Morgan is the best presenter!
