Piers Morgan willing to take over Boris Johnson as Prime Minister if ‘the people want me’ | UK | News (Reports)


The outspoken Good Morning Britain host has been subject to speculation he could replace Boris Johnson after a year of talking about politics and the Covid-19 pandemic. Mr Morgan has repeatedly criticised politicians for not wanting to appear on Good Morning Britain despite talking to other broadcasters.

Speaking to yesterday, Mr Morgan did not deny he would go into politics if “the people want me”.

He added: “Who am I to ignore the will of the people?”

In addition, Mr Morgan said on Good Morning Britain he would “get stuff done” in the Prime Minister’s position.

Despite this, betting platform Betfair are reportedly offering odds of 20/1 for him to become Prime Minister within the next decade.

Co-host Susanna Reid joked: “If you ever become Prime Minister, I’m getting on a yacht and going to the South of France.”

The two GMB hosts recently quizzed Health Secretary Matt Hancock who agreed to appear on the show.

In a back-and-forth exchange, Mr Hancock refused to answer whether he regretted voting against the continuation of free school meals for children.

This week the TV host called on Boris Johnson to resign, calling the UK’s covid-19 death toll of over 100,000 fatalities “shameful”.
