The popular chat show first aired back in 2009.

While it’s not known whether the show will continue, fans were quick to share their concerns on social media.

Many users pointed out that the series is filmed for ITV.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “What does this mean for Piers Morgan’s other shows on ITV like Life Stories etc. Do you think they will still work with him?”

A second said: “@piersmorgan Will Life Stories still be on though? Asking for a friend…”

In addition, a third added: “@ITV please remove Piers Morgan from your platform. Surely it is inappropriate to have Life Stories on your channel.”

Another shared: “Life Stories is ITV is it not? Surely they’ve taken him off that as well?”

Furthermore, a fifth asked: “@piersmorgan Are you still doing Life Stories.”

‘Such a great series’

Meanwhile, other fans were optimistic about the show’s future.

One added: “Well done Piers it needed to be said. GMB won’t be the same. More time for you and your family and hopefully time to make more Piers Morgan’s Life Stories.”

A second wrote: “Hopefully it will give you more time to do Life Stories. Such a great series.”

Another commented: “Gutted that you’ve left GMB but you have to do what’s right for you. Hope to see you back with more Life Stories.”

Piers said today that his discussion with ITV was “amicable” so that gives hope of a new run of Life Stories…

Why has Piers quit GMB?

Earlier this week, ITV released a statement to confirm Piers was leaving Good Morning Britain.

A statement read: “Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain.

“ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add.”

Meanwhile, Piers wrote on Twitter on Wednesday: “On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview.

“I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t. If you did, OK. Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on. Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more time with my opinions.”

Since then, viewers have called for Eamonn Holmes to replace the star.
