Piers Morgan has cemented his TV return with a headline-grabbing interview with Donald Trump, in which the former US President made a statement on whether he intends to run for office in 2024.

During the interview on new nightly talk show Piers Morgan Uncensored, Mr Trump said he could not reveal whether he would run for office again, but added that “a lot of people are going to be very happy”.

The interview is part of the global launch plan for TalkTV, the new venture from News UK, publisher of The Times and The Sun.

The new channel will be broadcast globally on linear TV platforms as well as online services such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and YouTube.

As part of the 70-plus-minute interview, Morgan asked Mr Trump if he would run for president in 2024, to which he replied: “For campaign finance reasons and everything I’m not allowed to say, but let me just say I think that a lot of people will be very happy about it.”

Also during the interview, former President Morgan said he believes he is “a lot more honest” than he is.

Mr Trump said: “I don’t think you’re real. I think I’m a much more honest person in many ways.”

Morgan seemed confused by the statement and asked, “Why am I not real?” to which Mr Trump replied, “We won’t go into that, let’s end the interview.”

The wide-ranging interview covered topics ranging from the Russian invasion of Ukraine to the 2020 American presidential election, in which Mr Trump lost to current US President Joe Biden.

In the second part of the interview, Mr Trump will speak about the royal family, including his call for the Queen to strip the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of their titles.

Viewers will also see the former president exit the interview, a moment previously revealed in a 30-second teaser clip.

Mr Trump later released a statement claiming Morgan “attempted to unlawfully and misleadingly edit his long and drawn out interview with me” before the presenter urged the public to “watch the interview – it will all be there”.

Morgan also delivered an opening monologue at the start of the talk show, stating his show will be a “no-cancel zone.”

He said: “My mission statement for this show is very simple – I’m going to cancel the culture.

“I will defeat this insidious, cheerless scourge of society with the most effective weapons for maintaining democracy – common sense and truth.”

Comedian Ricky Gervais also made a surprise appearance early on, delivering a “good luck” message to the TV host.

In a video, the comedian said: “The producers of Piers Morgan’s new show have contacted me and asked if I would like to be a guest. I said ‘Definitely not’.

“They said would you mind making a short video and wishing him luck? I said, ‘Do I have to be serious?’ They said “No”. I said ‘good luck’.”

Morgan famously stormed off ITV’s Good Morning Britain last year and subsequently exited the show after saying he didn’t believe former Suits actress Meghan’s claims during her and Harry’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The fledgling news channel kicked off Monday nights at 7pm with an hour-long evening bulletin segment called The News Desk, hosted by Tom Newton Dunn, former political editor of The Sun.

The show scrutinized the daily news from around the world, including the sexist allegations made against Labor’s Angela Rayner and the premiere of Downton Abbey.

It also included an interview with the mother and brother of Briton Aiden Aslin, who was captured while fighting with Ukrainian forces against Russia, and an interview with Prince Andrew’s former personal assistant.

Morgan’s segment will be followed by a panel discussion show, The Talk, hosted by Sharon Osbourne.

The show will see five famous faces from different backgrounds and views discussing current issues.
