Piers Morgan, 55, has long been the outspoken face of Good Morning Britain alongside his co-host Susanna Reid, 49, the woman many have hailed for being able to “handle” his many on-air rants. Amid all the negativity in the world, Piers has been constantly bashed by members of the public for his opinions.

That is a question that crosses my mind every time my alarm goes off at 4.45am

Earlier this year, he dropped a huge hint that he might not be returning to the show after he took a week off in May.

It comes after the show was hit by over 500 Ofcom complaints in a week due to his rants and rows with MPs over how the government have handled to deadly coronavirus pandemic.

He said on-air at the time: “Today could be our last day. You never know, do you? These days.

“It’s weird to have half term off when there’s no half term. We’re sort of having half term off from this everyone needs a bit of time out to think about all of this.”

But to his fans joy, he did indeed return to the hot seat and continued on his crusade to get the nation the answers they want.

There was even a petition to have him removed from the show, which garnered just over 68,000 signatories from viewers unhappy with his attitude.

Meanwhile Piers remains strong.

But he has his doubts, too.

In his most recent Daily Mail column, he thanked This Morning host Eamonn Holmes, again for hailing him as the “saviour of breakfast TV”, rescuing GMB from “going down the drain of vanilla blandness”.

Eamonn’s comments came during an interview with journalist Rodney Ed­­­­wards on the Human Nature pod­­cast, where he explained Piers arrived and “shook it up”.

“The thing about Piers, and probably why a lot of people watch him, is you don’t know how long it’ll last, you don’t know how long he will last,” he continued, sounding concerned about his fellow ITV colleagues future.

And Piers acknowledges that frame of mind.

Addressing Eamonn’s concerns, he wrote: “That is a question that crosses my mind every time my alarm goes off at 4.45am.”

“I’ve been at GMB for nearly five years and our ratings just hit a record high.

“Amusingly, they’ve risen steadily since the Government started boycotting the show – so I’m definitely due a self-implosion.”

He continued with a phrase ingrained in his mind: “As my late, great grandmother loved to remind me whenever things were going too well: ‘Remember: one day you’re c**k of the walk, the next a feather duster.’”

But will Piers ever leave the show he adores so much?

After announcing the terms of his latest contract with ITV, the telly stalwart has secured his place until 2021.

Whether he decides enough is enough after that point, we don’t know.

But one thing is for sure – it won’t be because of the complaints or the trolls that continue to attack him for his opinions.

Good Morning Britain continues weekdays at 6am on ITV.
