TV’s Piers Morgan has revealed he wants to do a series of his show Life Stories that features non-celebrities.
The Good Morning Britain host, 55, admitted he would like to make a version of the programme that focuses on individuals who haven’t found fame – but have nevertheless lived inspiring lives.
On Twitter, Piers posted about an interview from today’s (Tuesday, April 21) episode of GMB that centred on a carer and her incredible gesture for an elderly man.
'It was so touching. It was the most precious thing anyone could have wished for.'
94-year-old Ken expresses his gratitude for the meaningful gift he received from his carer Kia Tobin.

Piers tweeted, “Love them” and one of his followers called on him to do a non-celebrity version of Life Stories.
Incredible stories from an incredible generation
They wrote: “I’d love you to do Piers Morgan’s Life Stories with non-celebrities. People who have no media training, no publicist, no PR working for them.
“Just real, raw, incredible stories from a generation that won’t always be with us. Their stories are important, I want to hear from them.”
Piers appeared to like the idea, as he tweeted back with a thumbs-up emoji: “Yes, I completely agree.”
Many of Piers’ followers were on board with the idea.
Real laughter, real tears
One said: “Yes, I agree, there would be real laughter, real tears and I think a lot of love. Piers Morgan for the job.”
Another wrote: “I was thinking the same, real lives about real people, who have made massive contributions to our world without seeking fame or wealth.”
Someone else told him: “Piers, going to hold you to that. A series about REAL HEROES with true-life, incredible stories to tell. That’s what TV should be about.
Something other than ‘rich celebs’
“Fed up of rich celebs travelling the world. Pay NHS workers to go globetrotting instead.”
