Prime Minister Piers Morgan: GMB star declares he will run for PM if Brits want him

Could Piers become the next PM?!

Many Piers Morgan fans are calling for him to be Prime Minister and he’s said if Brits want that, he would run for the position.

The Good Morning Britain host responded to online campaigns calling for him to run for PM.

On Tuesday’s show, Piers, 55, suggested he couldn’t do “any worse” than Boris Johnson.

“That’s the real calculation for the British people as they wake up this morning to this huge campaign. Could I do any worse?”

The campaigns come after Piers’ hard-hitting interviews with Government ministers.

He added: “There’s a point to that, which is when we do go quite hard on these ministers, it’s interesting who shines under the pressure.

“And who does what Thérèse Coffey did yesterday, where she just gave up.”

Piers also shared the news to Twitter, urging his fans to vote in a poll for him to be PM.

He said: “Let’s do this, my people. Vote for PM.”

Piers also said on Instagram: “I’m ready to serve.”

It comes after Piers’ interview with MP Thérèse Coffey ended by her cutting off the video call yesterday.

What happened on GMB?

Piers asked the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions why the UK has the highest COVID death rate.

Ms Coffey said the ageing population and the obesity of our population both contributed.

However, as Piers grilled her on the comments, she insisted she had to go.

She said: “Piers thanks very much. We were due to start at 8.15. I’m sorry, Piers. I’m going to have to go to another broadcaster.”

Leaning forward to end the call, Ms Coffey added: “You’ve already had 20 minutes of my time. I appreciate your time as well. Thank you, bye bye.”
