Good Morning Britain’s former host Piers Morgan is back after his explosive exit from the morning show.

Morgan has signed a global deal with Rupert Murdoch’s News UK’s TV channel talkTV, which will launch in early 2022 and will be aired in the UK, Australia and the US where he will present a series of true crime documentaries.

Morgan will also be taking on the role as a columnist for The Sun and the New York Post in a new deal between News Corp and Fox News Media.

In a statement Morgan said, “I’m thrilled to be returning to News Corp. which is where I began my media career more than 30-years ago.

“Rupert Murdoch has been a constant and fearless champion of free speech and we are going to be building something new and very exciting together.

“I want my global show to be a fearless forum for lively debate and agenda-setting interviews, and a place that celebrates the right of everyone to have an opinion, and for those opinions to be vigorously examined and challenged.

“I’m also delighted to become a columnist for The Sun and the New York Post, two brilliantly successful and popular newspaper brands.

“I’m going home and we’re going to have some fun.”

Morgan later tweeted, “I’ve gone home. Great to be rejoining Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation after 28-years. The place I started my media career, with the boss who gave me my first big break.

“We’re going to have a lot of fun….”

Rupert Murdoch added, “Piers is the broadcaster every channel wants but is too afraid to hire.

“Piers is a brilliant presenter, a talented journalist and says what people are thinking and feeling.

“He has many passionate fans around the world and we look forward to expanding his audience in the UK, at FOX Nation, Sky News Australia, The Sun and the New York Post.”
