Piers Morgan has declared he will not be returning to Good Morning Britain and has teased he’s in the midst of launching a ‘global’ project.
The presenter quit the ITV daytime programme in March after stating he didn’t believe any of Meghan Markle’s claims in her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Ofcom cleared the show of breaching broadcasting conduct earlier this week, prompting Piers to ask: ‘Do I get my job back?’
While many speculated that the host could soon be back on Good Morning Britain, Piers has explained why viewers shouldn’t expect him at the helm anytime soon.
‘I put that post on social media asking if I’d get my job back to prove a point,’ he said. ‘I wouldn’t go back, not without a public apology and I’m not going to get one.
‘I’ve got much bigger things coming up. The future is exciting. The next project is global, it’s big.’
According to the Mirror, he added to Daily Mail: ‘I can’t say what but people are going to hear about it within the next few weeks.’
On Wednesday, television watchdog Ofocm ruled that Piers was entitled to share his opinions about the Duchess Of Sussex.
Sharing a ruling that was 97 pages long, the broadcasting regulator said that while his comments were ‘potentially harmful and offensive’, Good Morning Britain did not breach the broadcasting code.‘This was a finely-balanced decision,’ it read. ‘Mr Morgan’s comments were potentially harmful and offensive to viewers, and we recognise the strong public reaction to them. But we also took full account of freedom of expression.’
It added: ‘Nonetheless, we’ve reminded ITV to take greater care around content discussing mental health and suicide in future. ITV might consider the use of timely warnings or signposting of support services to ensure viewers are properly protected.’
Piers has remained tight-lipped over what the ‘global’ project could be however he has hinted that he could resume his TV career in the States again or elsewhere abroad.
Speaking outside his home on Wednesday, he said: ‘I have had loads of offers and they have accelerated in the last 10 hours, as you can imagine, and I will take my free speech campaign around the world and all I require is to have an employer who believes in it as passionately as I do.’
He added: ‘I’m considering some very interesting offers right now and I will make a decision quite soon.’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
