After working in many different jobs over his career, it looks like Piers Morgan could be heading into politics after dropping a hint that he could run for Prime Minister.
The Good Morning Britain host, who recently said Kate Garraway’s husband Derek ‘might never come out of his coma’, turned his attention to politics during the coronavirus pandemic and it appears he has got a taste for it.
Speaking to The Sun, the 55 year old said: “As for politics…listen, if it’s my turn to serve, and the people want me…
“Who am I to ignore the will of the people?,” he expressed.

On Wednesday’s episode of Good Morning Britain, Piers and co-host Susanna Reid ran a poll asking whether or not the dad-of-four would make a good Prime Minister or not.
However, it was not the response Piers had anticipated as viewers weren’t too keen on the idea.
A campaign video for the ‘Piers party’ was shown, with celebrities Peter Andre and Mark Wright backing the star.
Mark said: “I always thought it was going to happen. I know he wants it, whether he tells you he does or doesn’t.”
With Peter adding: “If you’re going to do it take Susanna with you because behind every great man… do you know what I mean?”
But despite many famous faces in favour of the idea, some celebrities didn’t think it was for the best.
Current Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s dad Stanley explained: “He’s a good man, but he’s a good man where he is.”
Tory MP Anne Widdecombe expressed: “I think Piers might make a very good supreme dictator but I’ll stick with Boris.”
Although it’s unclear whether or not Piers would actually run for prime minister, the outspoken television star, who hit out at Liz Hurley for her topless snaps, recently seemingly confirmed the end of his friendship with former US president Donald Trump.
Posting a picture of them on Twitter, he wrote: “You blew it, Donald. If you’d shown Americans leadership & empathy when it really mattered in the past year, you’d have been re-elected.
“Instead, you failed them. Spectacularly badly. And now you slink off as a gutless graceless sore loser.”
