Piers Morgan is preparing to host his last ever episode of Life Stories, and it’s already looking like an emotional one.
The presenter is speaking to Kate Garraway later today as he films his final instalment of the ITV series.
Posting on Twitter, Piers posted a picture showing him busy prepping for the interview and shared an update with his followers.
‘Final prep for my final Life Stories which is being filmed today. Can’t think of anyone I would rather do it with than my great friend @kategarraway.’
He added: ‘Suspect it will get quite emotional up at Elstree Studios this afternoon.’
The former Good Morning Britain co-stars are expected to have an extensive chat about Kate’s career, as well as her husband Derek Draper, who still remains unwell after contracting Covid-19, and is recovering at their family home.
It comes after Piers announced he planned to quit as host of Life Stories after 12 years, with final guest Kate named as his replacement.
The journalist sensationally left his role on Good Morning Britain earlier this year and is set to quit his other long-running ITV gig too.
His pal Kate will be his last guest, and then take over from the TV veteran for the final three episodes of the series.
Piers confirmed the switch on Twitter, writing: ‘BREAKING NEWS: I’m quitting Life Stories after 12 years and 100 shows.
‘My final one will be with my fabulous friend @kategarraway and she will then present the remaining 3 planned shows of the next series as I leave ITV to host my new global daily show. It’s been a blast!’
An ITV spokesperson told Metro.co.uk in response: ‘Piers and ITV have agreed that his interview with Kate Garraway for Piers Morgan’s Life Stories will be his last; and that Kate will take over the baton on his behalf for the remaining three episodes of the forthcoming series.
‘We would like to thank Piers for over a hundred engaging, compelling and insightful Life Stories over the past 12 years where his interviewees have included the very best names in showbiz, business and politics. We wish him the very best of luck with all of his future ventures.
‘Kate is a brilliant journalist and an inquisitive interviewer and we look forward to her forthcoming three shows.’
Life Stories is available to watch on ITV Hub.
