Piers Morgan has put an open call out for people to apply for his new TV show – but he’s encouraging ‘annoying woke snowflakes’ to give it a miss.

The former Good Morning Britain host is set to return to TV as part of News UK.

While he’s thrilled that Erron Gordon, a former director at GMB, is joining the new show, it seems they’re currently a little short-staffed in other areas.

News UK is hiring for 10 roles – executive producer, series editor, producers, a writer, a video editor, and a booker.

All of the roles are on a 12-month fixed term contract, and the salaries are listed as ‘competitive’.

Sharing the vacancies, Piers wrote: ‘We’re hiring for my new show & an exciting new TV network. We only want the very best – so no annoying woke snowflakes need apply, thanks.’

Some fans are excited to see what Piers is working on, while others have been less than impressed with his methods.

 

‘Wow that’s going to really encourage a balanced response of talent,’ one follower wrote, while another asked: ‘So not everyones freedom of speech matters though I thought you wrote a book on how it matters?’

Piers quit Good Morning Britain in March this year after facing controversy over his comments on Meghan Markle.

While he was hit with 41,000 Ofcom complaints in 24 hours, the regulator later ruled that Piers was entitled to share his opinions after an investigation.

Months later, he revealed he will be headed back on screen – not as part of GB News as some speculated, but with a primetime show on TalkTV.

In the global deal, Piers will launch a new TV show in early 2022, to air on weeknights in the UK, US and Australia, and present a series of True Crime documentaries.

In addition to this, HarperCollins UK has signed world rights for Piers’s new title and will publish in hardback, audio and digital formats.

The channel is a new deal between News Corp and Fox News Media, with Piers also taking on a role as a columnist for The Sun and the New York Post.

Announcing the news, Piers said in a statement: ‘I’m thrilled to be returning to News Corp. which is where I began my media career more than 30 years ago. Rupert Murdoch has been a constant and fearless champion of free speech and we are going to be building something new and very exciting together.

‘I want my global show to be a fearless forum for lively debate and agenda-setting interviews, and a place that celebrates the right of everyone to have an opinion, and for those opinions to be vigorously examined and challenged.

‘I’m also delighted to become a columnist for The Sun and the New York Post, two brilliantly successful and popular newspaper brands.

‘I’m going home and we’re going to have some fun.’
