Piers Morgan says he’s worth MORE than £10m in bidding war as he plans comeback after quitting GMB

PIERS Morgan has insisted he is worth more than £10million as he plans his comeback after Good Morning Britain.

The 55-year-old presenter dramatically quit the ITV show last week following complaints over Meghan Markle.

Now, Piers is believed to be locked in a mega-money bidding war that could see him return to the US.

According to The Mirror, the star has been publicly courted by news channels in the UK and America.

A TV source told the publication: "He has had millions of pounds worth of offers. He turned GMB into a ratings hit, it seems everything he touches turns to gold.

"People love his honesty, even the people that don’t like him, they can’t help but be interested in what he says.

"Some of the offers have hit the £10million mark, and it seems he may be able to land exactly what he wants."

Following the rumours, Piers took to Twitter to give his say on the matter.

Reposting The Sun's article, the host responded: "Only 10?"

Piers is well known in the US from his time as a judge on Americans' Got Talent and his CNN show, which he fronted for three years before it was cancelled.

He then returned to the UK and was persuaded by his agent to take a job on Good Morning Britain.

Meanwhile, last week, Piers quit GMB after refusing to apologise for his remarks about Meghan Markle.

It came after 41,000 Ofcom complaints were received over his comments and a furious on-air row with GMB co-star Alex Beresford.

The 40-year-old had accused Piers of "trashing" Meghan Markle after he said he didn't believe the she had suffered suicidal thoughts while a royal.

At the time, Alex said: "I understand that you don't like Meghan Markle, you've made it so clear a number of times on this programme.

"I understand you've got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle, or had one and she cut you off… She's entitled to cut you off if she wants to. Has she said anything about you since she cut you off? I don't think she has, but yet you continue to trash her."

This remark hit a nerve, with Piers dramatically standing up and saying: "Okay, I'm done with this", as he stormed off set.

Since then, the host has ruled out a return to GMB after a petition to reinstate him passed 200,000 signatures.
