Piers Morgan reveals he’s signed a contract to keep him on Good Morning Britain until 2021 – The Sun
PIERS Morgan has revealed that he has signed a contract that will keep him on Good Morning Britain until 2021.
The 55-year-old star remains defiant in the face of critics, having received over 4,000 Ofcom complaints so far this year, telling viewers to "switch off" if they don't like him.
The TV presenter confirmed that he will remain on GMB alongside co-host Susanna Reid for the foreseeable in an interview with The Sun's TV Mag.
Piers said: "I’ve just signed a new contract up for GMB until the end of next year. I love working with Susanna and the team – we’re a Ying Yang that works."
He also slammed those who complain about his combative presenting style on the show, with the divisive character hitting the headlines after a series of explosive interviews with government ministers in recent weeks.
Piers insisted that he "doesn't care" about any backlash, and remained jubilant that Ofcom cleared him of all complaints.
He explained: "If my style upsets people, don't watch! Watch something else. Nobody's forcing anyone to watch it.
"You've got a remote control in your hand, I really don't understand what the problem is."
Piers added: "I don't care. I only care about Ofcom complaints if I genuinely feel that I have been at fault, then you know you're a fool.
"Ofcom ruled very heavily in my favour, which confirmed my belief that I'm just doing my job. The job of broadcasters, particularly during a crisis like this, is to challenge and ask questions.
"My frustration and anger on air comes about when ministers are completely incapable of answering even basic questions."
Although he is comfortable remaining on the breakfast show for the time being, Piers did share his huge career plans once his time comes to an end – joking that he could end up being the next James Bond.
When asked about his plans at the end of his new contract, Piers laughed: "Then? There's going to be a new James Bond and we've had Pierce Brosnan, so why not Piers Morgan?
"I think it’s time for a slightly older, slightly silvery fox assassin."
