Piers Morgan returns to ITV for the first time in more than a year after storming off the set of Good Morning Britain and joked he could ‘storm back to GMB’.
The 57-year-old TV host took to social media to announce that he will be a guest on the Lorraine show on April 21.
He made headlines last year after leaving the ITV breakfast show following an on-air clash with weather presenter Alex Beresford over the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The former tabloid editor said he doesn’t believe Meghan’s claims from the headline-grabbing interview as his comments sparked more than 50,000 complaints, the most in Ofcom’s history.
Alongside a picture of himself and presenter Lorraine Kelly, he wrote: “BREAKING: I’ll be returning to ITV tomorrow for the first time since the Markle debacle… live and definitely uncensored on @lorraine with the fabulous @reallorraine – should be fun… (may even rushing back to @GMB while I wait and upping those ratings again.)”
Morgan will soon be back on screens with the launch of TalkTV on Monday. His new TV show Piers Morgan Uncensored airs at 8pm, while The News Desk, hosted by Tom Newton Dunn, former political editor of The Sun, airs at 7pm.
Sharon Osbourne appears on The Talk weekdays at 9pm.
Uncensored streams on Fox Nation in the US and airs on Sky News Australia.

Watchdog Ofcom ruled Good Morning Britain had not breached the Broadcasting Code over Morgan’s controversial comments.
No permanent replacement has been announced since his departure from the show, as Richard Madeley and others appear in a rotating cast of guest presenters.
