GB News slot for Morgan? It has been backed into 6/4 from 3/1
ITV have confirmed that Piers Morgan has left his presenters role at popular daytime show Good Morning Britain after they received a backlash for his controversial comments about Meghan Markle following her headline-making interview with Oprah Winfrey.
He tweeted: “On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview. I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t.” Morgan was accused by GMB weatherman Alex Beresford of continuing to ‘trash’ Meghan Markle after the Duchess of Sussex ‘cut-off’ their personal relationship which resulted in Piers storming off the set.
BoyleSports traders have received numerous requests for a price on what Piers Morgan will do next with a move to News UK TV well supported with those odds hammered into 4/6 favourite from 2/1. It was announced last year that the Rupert Murdoch venture called ‘News UK TV’ had received the go ahead to start broadcasting so perhaps that could be the next move for Piers Morgan having been linked to the role before his tantrum on ITV on Tuesday.
Ofcom have announced that it is investigating comments Morgan made about the interview with over 41,000 complaints. This hasn’t put punters off backing where they think he will go next however with a move to GB News 6/4 from 3/1 while BoyleSports believe a transfer to BBC Breakfast is a 7/1 chance.
The former CNN presenter is 200/1 to move into Number 10 in the future and is a popular 10/1 shot from a high of 66/1 to shock viewers by joining the ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ camp later this year.
Sarah Kinsella, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “Piers Morgan stormed off Good Morning Britain on Tuesday following his comments about Meghan Markle and now ITV have confirmed he won’t be returning. We have cut the chances of a move to News UK TV into 4/6 favourite from 2/1 while the chances of him joining GB News is 6/4 from 3/1.”
