Piers Morgan issues dig at ITV after Schofield’s exit ‘stepped things up’

Piers Morgan tells Dan Wker to f**K off at Tric Awards

Piers Morgan has said This Morning have “stepped things up” since the presenter left Good Morning Britain two years ago.

The TalkTV presenter, 58, attended the TRIC Awards at Grosvenor House in London on Tuesday, where he scooped a gong for Interview of the Year at the TRIC Awards.

He addressed Phillip Schofield’s departure from ITV after he admitted to having had an affair with a much younger colleague in May.

This Morning has also been plagued with accusations of a “toxic” working environment, which Phillip vehemently denied.

When asked whether he was missing the drama, Piers told OK! magazine: “Well, I thought I brought a bit of punch to ITV morning. But my God, they’ve stepped things up, haven’t they!”

The presenter went on to address if he would ever consider returning to GMB, as Piers admitted the broadcasting company would have to pay him big money to get him back on the panel.

The TalkTV host commented: “If someone wants to pay me £50 million to go back to Good Morning Britain, I’ll think about it. It might have to be £60m actually. I’m worth it!”

He added you can “never say never”.

Piers recently shared that Phillip has been “struggling” in the wake of his ITV exit.

He quit ITV’s This Morning last month amid ongoing reports of a feud with Holly Willoughby.

Two weeks after his exit, he eventually issued a lengthy statement admitting to an affair with a younger male colleague.

Speaking to The Sun at The Tric Awards, Piers said: “I’ve been in touch with Phillip and I think he’s struggling. It’s tough to leave any big job, let alone when it’s a big scandal. But he’ll be back. I think he can bounce back.

“I think the more it’s gone on, the more people are thinking, what exactly did he do that was so heinous.”

Phillip stepped down from ITV shows Dancing On Ice, This Morning and the British Soap Awards.
