Piers Morgan has said he would “give both kidneys” to interview Matt Hancock in the wake of his affair scandal.
The former Good Morning Britain host made the confession after receiving a similar suggestion from his brother’s pal.

The text said: “I would give a kidney for your brother to interview him on GMB. Literally a kidney.”
Posting the message online, Piers told his 1.7 million followers: “Message to my younger brother from one of his mates.
“I’d probably give both my kidneys to be able to….”
He added that he’d also give a lung for the opportunity!
Piers’ response to Matt Hancock kissing aide
Piers has already been quite vocal after photos of Hancock snogging Gina Coladangelo, 43, outside his Whitehall office emerged.
There is no love lost between the pair after Piers repeatedly slammed Hancock’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
So when CCTV pictures of Matt and Gina enjoying a steamy embrace emerged on Friday (June 25), Piers was quick to comment.
The former tabloid journalist shared a copy of The Sun’s front page, featuring the images, on Twitter.
Alongside it, Piers said: “At the time he was ordering the British people not to hug anyone from other households…”
Piers has since gone on to post several funny memes of Matt Hancock on social media.
Despite calls for Prime Minister Boris Johnson to sack Matt for breaching social distancing rules, he is clinging onto his job.
He has, however, issued an apology.
“I accept I breached social distancing guidance in these circumstances,” Matt said. “I have let people down and am very sorry.”
Hancock did not mention his wife or family in the apology, instead pleading for “privacy” saying it was a “personal matter”.
Piers and Matt: Their history
Piers sensationally quit Good Morning Britain in March.
It came after he accused Prince Harry’s wife Meghan Markle of “lying” in their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Piers refused to apologise for his views and instead chose to leave the ITV breakfast show.
It has been a massive blow to ratings, especially after his and Susanna Reid’s coverage of the coronavirus pandemic saw many more viewers tuning in.
Piers made it his personal mission to hold the government to account over the handling of the health crisis.
This included several interviews with Hancock and his colleagues, which resulted in a 201-day boycott of the show.
In November, however, the boycott came to an end when Piers and Susanna finally got an interview with the Health Secretary.
