Piers Morgan confirms he's staying at ITV after quitting GMB and is filming more Life Stories shows 'soon'

PIERS Morgan has confirmed he's filming more Life Stories shows and is 'staying at ITV' after quitting Good Morning Britain.

The 55-year-old presenter caused chaos when he stormed off the breakfast show and later quit, following his refusal to apologise to Meghan Markle over comments he made about her mental health.

Many of his 7.8 million Twitter followers were devastated when he left Good Morning Britain and bombarded Piers with requests to stay on the air.

One contacted him on Twitter last night after his Life Stories episode with Coleen Nolan, and said: "Great show. Don’t leave #LifeStories Piers!"

The controversial broadcaster replied: "Thanks Andrew – don’t worry, I’m filming some more soon."

It comes after Piers said on Twitter on Wednesday: "Reports of my ITV demise have been greatly exaggerated…. I’m back already."

He plugged his Life Stories interview with Coleen Nolan, in which she opened up about the effect of her dad's horrific abuse on her family.

He insisted he was "still working" with ITV and "wasn't fired" after his showdown with channel bosses.

Piers said he "didn't believe a word Meghan said" after she told the US chat show host she was suicidal while living in England.

He was condemned by mental health charities and sparked more than 57,000 complaints to broadcasting watchdog Ofcom.

And his unwillingness to apologise for his remarks left him at loggerheads with bosses, prompting him to walk away.

The following day he stood by his comments and last night brushed off the record-breaking number of complaints.

He tweeted: "Only 57,000? I’ve had more people than that come up & congratulate me in the street for what I said. The vast majority of Britons are right behind me."

Piers had fumed on air: "I don't believe a word she says, Meghan Markle. I wouldn't believe a weather report if she read it.

"The fact she has expressed an onslaught against our Royal Family is contemptible."

He later clashed with co-star Alex Beresford when the 40-year-old accused the host of "trashing" Meghan.

At that, Piers got out of his seat and stormed out of the studio saying: "Sorry, see you later, I can't do this."

Meanwhile, his fans are keen for him to host a news show elsewhere.

One said: "When are you joining GB News channel Piers? .. We need you back on the telly.. might have the take a pay cut but you can have your say.. Andrew Neil wants you.."

Fellow broadcaster Andrew Neil has set up the soon-to-launch GB News and has already offered Piers a job.
