Will Piers return to GMB? (Picture: Ken McKay/ITV/REX)
Piers Morgan has claimed hes been asked to return to Good Morning Britain, months after sensationally quitting the show over his comments on Meghan Markle.
While he wouldnt name names, Piers claimed a third-party had reached out to see if he would consider a return to the networks flagship program, which is yet to announce a permanent replacement for him.
He told The Sun: As the Americans say, they reached out there have been approaches to test the water in the wake of their obvious ratings issues.
It makes me sad to see all the hard work we did to beat the BBC in viewing numbers evaporate so fast.
Its their problem to work out but never say never.
Piers left the show after saying he did not believe what the Duchess of Sussex said during her explosive TV interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.
The duchess said she was ignored when raising concerns about her mental health and that racist comments had been made before the birth of her son, Archie.

It later emerged Meghan made a formal complaint to ITV about Morgan, with Ofcom receiving more than 40,000 complaints in the days that followed Pierss criticism of the interview.
However, asked about his infamous walk-out from the set after his on-air tiff with Alex Beresford, Piers did concede he regretted the moment.
Claiming ITV didnt offer any support amid his departure, he said: I shouldnt have walked off, though, I do regret that. You cant be the great crusader of free speech and then walk off when someone says something you dont like.
Ever the optimist, Piers believes he can pummel BBC Breakfast GMBs closest competitor in the ratings again, after, on his last day, more viewers tuned into the ITV show.
Still he noted his doubt anyone would be allowed to do it that way again, adding he was hired to give very strong, honestly held opinions.
Piers noted he had one caveat to his return he wanted to produce as well as present, adding he would seriously consider it if he were allowed to rip it up and pick his team.
Which doesnt bode well for popular presenter Alex whose on-air clash with Piers resulted in the journalist storming out in sensational scenes that hit headlines around the world and resulted in his eventual resignation.
When asked who would be in his team, Piers responded: Well, a certain weatherman definitely wouldnt be around…
