Former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, 56, reacted to the news that veteran broadcaster Jon Snow has stepped down from his role as a presenter on Channel 4 News. The 73-year-old has been the programme’s main anchor since 1989 but has decided it’s “time to move on” after “three incredible decades”.
Following his announcement, Piers has quipped he’d be keen to replace Jon as he posed a question to Channel 4.
It comes after the ex-GMB host quit his role on the ITV programme in a dramatic manner back in March.
Piers admitted that he refused to apologise for comments he made about Meghan Markle during her explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey and as a result decided to quit GMB altogether.
It seems viewers may get to see the outspoken broadcaster front the news on a rival network.
Taking to Twitter, Piers took the opportunity to question Channel 4’s next move.
In view of his 7.9 million followers, he penned: “Shall I dust down my tie collection @Channel4News.”
Piers cheeky post caught the attention of his fans, who agreed they would love to see him back on their screens.
One penned: “Yep dust the tie down get back on our TV.”
“Yes, indeed dust them down and get back on our TV screens,” another commented.
While a third joked: “I noticed you wearing a suit in the last post. Had an interview then?”
Following Piers’ GMB exit there has been widespread speculation over his next move, after his six-year stint on the ITV morning show.
He recently described his change of employment status as a “temporary hibernation”.

Piers said: “I think it’s fair to say, although the woke crowd will think that they’ve cancelled me, I think they will be rather disappointed when I re-emerge.”
Andrew Neil recently offered the former GMB presenter a job following his shock resignation.
The chairman of television news channel GB News said he would be “delighted” to give Piers a role on the new network, which is set to launch later this month.
Last month, Andrew said: “Well, Piers would be a huge asset to GB news and we’ll definitely look at that. We haven’t started any negotiations yet.
“We would certainly be delighted to talk to him if he’s up for it.”
Meanwhile, Jon announced his departure from Channel 4 news after 32 years in a lengthy statement released today.
He said: “I am excited by the many things I want to accomplish but I have to say I have enjoyed every minute of my time with the programme.
“It has brought me adventure, as well as sorrow in some of the stories that I have had to report and also joy in reporting others, but above all, it has brought me community in working with the most fantastic group of people who are bound in intellect, humour and understanding.
“Together, we have forged a wonderful service. I feel proud to have contributed to Channel 4 News let alone to have anchored the programme for the last 32 years. I’m looking forward to new adventures and new challenges.”
Snow joined Channel 4 News after serving as ITN’s Washington correspondent and diplomatic editor in the 1980s.
