Piers Morgan praises Daily Star campaign to make him Prime Minister

Piers Morgan, 55, has praised your Daily Star's campaign to get him into Number 10 Downing Street.

The outspoken ITV host dedicated the first ten minutes of Tuesday's Good Morning Britain to our front page – admitting he thinks he will do a better job than Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Clearly taken by the idea about making a full-time move into politics, Piers went on to reference the campaign throughout the show.

Piers said: "It has got a ring to it, and could I do any worse is the real question.

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

Determined not to let Piers' ego get anymore out of control, his co-host Susanna Reid quickly interrupted: "It’s not Good Morgan Britain yet!"

Referencing a shocking interview from Monday's show with Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Thérèse Coffey in which the MP turned off her video camera mid chat, Piers said: "There is a point to it when we do go hard on the ministers, who shines and who doesn't?

"She reminded me of someone at the local W.I meeting trying to turn off the Zoom."

Hitting out at accusations by Ms Coffey that Good Morning Britain bosses kept her waiting before going on air, Piers said: "If you want to us to keep to time then give us a straight answer.

"The reason we were four minutes late was because we had a very powerful interview with a Holocaust and Covid surviver and we thought it important to give it more time."

Already, Gavin-and-Stacey-actor-turned-Hollywood-A-lister James Corden has backed our campaign.

Reading out an email he had received from the US talk show host on air, Piers revealed that James, 42, thinks we are on to something.

Keen to see if Good Morning Britain viewers want him to leave the show and run for the top job, producers hosted a poll via their official Twitter feed.

Piers went on to admit it would take a lot of money but he could be persuaded to leave Good Morning Britain and head into Number 10 for the greater good.

Already planning his first Cabinet, he added he thought Lorraine Kelly would make a great Home Secretary – branding her 'Priti Patel with a brain'.

After seeing support for PM to be PM was stuck around 26%, Piers chuckled: "I can't believe that GMB viewers don't want me to run the country."

"Perhaps it is because they don't want you to leave Good Morning Britain?", Susanna replied with a smirk on her face.

Insisting the best is yet to come, Piers boasted: "That poll is going to change.

"This is about a movement and the Daily Star has started the movement.

"I could make time in my schedule to do better job than Boris Johnson. It wouldn't be hard would it."
