PIERS Morgan has dropped a hint about his return to television.

The Newick-born presenter left Good Morning Britain in March after storming off set following a clash with co-star Alex Beresford.

But Piers has taken to social media to assure his fans he will be returning to their screens “soon”.

The 56-year-old shared a photo on Twitter in which he was embraced by a group of women as he visited a cafe.

The tweet said: “Great to meet my Yorkshire fan club this morning. Thanks for all the support, ladies - and don’t worry, I’ll be back on TV soon.”

Piers continued to tease fans after responding to a Daily Mail Online story that hinted of his imminent return, with a winking face emoji.

His 7.9 million followers on Twitter were split as to where the presenter will work next.

One fan said, “I’d love to see him on GB News”, while another suggested the One Show.

Another added: “New Arsenal manager?”

Other jovial suggestions included the new host of Top of The Pops, a new shepherd alongside Jeremy Clarkson and even a contestant on next year’s Love Island.

The presenter left the ITV breakfast show after comments made about the Duchess of Sussex during her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

His comments sparked more than 50,000 complaints - the most in watchdog Ofcom’s history.

Ofcom ruled his comments were “potentially harmful and highly offensive” but were thoroughly challenged by his co-host Susanna Reid and ITV News’s royal editor Chris Ship during the programme.

Since his departure, ITV has not hired a replacement and instead has featured a rotating cast of presenters, including Adil Ray and Richard Bacon.

Piers’ wife Celia Walden told GMB this week that her husband has “some irons in the fire” and “won't be kicking around the house for much longer”.

Last week, Piers was pictured sat alongside ITV’s director of television Kevin Lygo.

The duo was seen sitting in the same box at The Oval cricket ground in London during England’s fourth test against India last Friday.

In April, Mr Lygo told Deadline there was not a single person who could replace Piers on Good Morning Britain.

“Piers is a special thing. You can’t replace somebody like him,” he said. “There is nobody like Piers, for good or bad.

“We have a roster of presenters, including Ben (Shephard), Susanna (Reid), Charlotte (Hawkins) and Kate (Garraway).

“They’re all stepping up and doing a few more days than they would have done.

“We’ll mix and match until we feel what the right thing is to do. There isn’t a single person (who can replace him).”
