Piers Morgan reveals he'll QUIT Good Morning Britain when new two-year deal ends

He's insisted his days on the ITV breakfast show are numbered

Host of Good Morning Britain Piers Morgan has vowed he'll be off after his new two year deal expires.

The 54-year-old triumphantly revealed yesterday he has inked a new contract to stay with ITV - but insisted today his days on the breakfast show are numbered.

Former newspaper editor Piers also treated viewers to a "jiggy-wig" of celebration, shuffling and dad-dancing in his chair, as fellow presenters Susanna Reid, Laura Tobin and Richard Arnold pantomimed along as if disappointed by the news their colleague would be staying on.

He told those watching at home this morning: "I've got two more years.

"Two more years of stories... anyway that's it, two more years and then I'll sail off into the sunset."

He later suggested: "And I guarantee then I'll be out."

Two more years and then I'll sail off into the sunset.

Reflecting on the reactions from his GMB co-stars, Piers went on to snipe: "Slightly underwhelmed by the response from my colleagues. The viewers are euphoric. My co-workers are wrestling with it."

He continued: "I've seen more cheerful people in a mausoleum."

As well as being locked down for GMB, Piers will also front two further series of Life Stories for ITV.

On social media, Piers' fans were made up to realise Piers will be staying on... but some also wondered why his extension wasn't for longer.

"So glad Piers is with us for another 2 years should sign for longer. Love Piers," tweeted one devotee.

"Thanks Piers for staying for another 2 years. You make my mornings," said another Twitter user.

But another person pondered: "Only 2 years?"

"Only two years! Should be more TV gold," echoed another supporter, also suggesting they don't reckon the new deal is that lengthy.

And another onlooker noted the same, joking to Susanna that 'she could make it through'.

They tweeted: "2 years = 104 weeks. Piers only works 3 days a week and takes a lot of holidays. You’re probably talking about 220 more daily endurance tests @susannareid100 you can do this!"

- Good Morning Britain airs on weekdays from 6am
