Sunday Morning viewers were delighted to see Piers Morgan on their TV screens earlier today (Sunday January 16).
Piers, 56, appeared on the BBC show alongside presenter Sophie Raworth for a review of the newspapers’ front pages.
But controversial tennis star Novak Djokovic also came in for criticism from ex GMB co-host Piers.
Piers Morgan on Sunday Morning
Going broadly by the Twitter reaction, many of Piers’ devoted fans seemed to be ecstatic to see him on the box.
“Good to have you back @piersmorgan #SundayMorning,” one admirer tweeted.
Another supporter wrote: “Fantastic to see @piersmorgan on TV this morning #SundayMorning.”
“Best thing about this morning – @piersmorgan is back on the box #SundayMorning,” posted a third person.
And a fourth added: “Great to see @piersmorgan back on morning TV! This is the perfect time for Piers to be let loose on all these corrupt MPs! #SundayMorning.”
I think I’ve missed seeing Piers Morgan on my television.
Others admitted they were surprised by how glad they were to watch him again.
“Just watching #SundayMorning and have realised how much I’ve missed @piersmorgan on my telly!” admitted one person.
And another owned up: “It’s odd, but I think I’ve missed seeing @piersmorgan on my television #SundayMorning.”
From that moment when @piersmorgan left #GMB I have longed for him to be back on morning television. We need to hear his views and opinions, I know I’ve missed hearing them and deep down all his haters missed him as well. Top job Piers as ever 👍👍 #SundayMorning #PiersMorgan pic.twitter.com/p4nmphBrPU

What did Piers say about Prince Harry?
In a dig at Good Morning Britain, Piers joked at the outset that it had previously been a ‘”problem” for him to have an opinion on breakfast telly.
He also suggested there was a common theme of ‘believing the rules don’t apply to them’ between people in the news like Boris Johnson, Prince Andrew and Novak Djokovic.
But Piers went on to bring up Prince Harry’s name, saying: “He’s popped his head up in California, again wanting to have his royal cake and eat it.”
Piers went on to claim about reports indicating Harry has applied for a judicial review into his security measures: “I don’t give a damn if [Harry is] willing to pay for it or not! Why should the British police protect him?”
He also suggested Harry continues to “trash” the royal family and is “now a private citizen, he doesn’t do any royal duties” and makes ‘hundreds of millions of dollars’.

What else did Piers say?
Piers also laid into the Prime Minister as a “complete disgrace” and insisted he must quit.
He said: “The court of public opinion has come back and found him guilty of the most brazen rank hypocrisy.”
Piers added: “I can’t think of a bigger breach, frankly, than a global health emergency where the government made these draconian orders and completely disregard them with impunity.”
Sunday Morning next airs on BBC One on Sunday January 23 at 9am.
