Piers Morgan, 56, has teased his return to television screens today after stepping down from Good Morning Britain back in March. The broadcaster shared a picture of him posing with his “Yorkshire fan club” outside a London cafe on Instagram and thanked the group of ladies for their ongoing support following his departure from the ITV breakfast programme.
Piers and the five ladies posed outside Cafe Phillies in London’s Kensington.
The discreet coffee shop is a favourite haunt of the TV star who lives in the area.
Alongside the snap, Piers typed: “Great to meet my Yorkshire fan club this morning. Thanks for all the support, ladies!
“I’ll be back on TV soon, don’t worry…”
In response, the ladies who met him were overjoyed at the news, as they said TV has “not been the same” without him and thanked him for taking time out of his day for a photo.
One commented: “You do make me laugh.TV isn’t the same without you!!!! X.”
A second replied: “Lovely to meet you Piers, thank you for the photograph!”
While a third typed: “So good to meet you Piers.”
A fourth remarked: “Fab to meet you love from your Yorkshire super fans xx.”
It comes as Piers said it was “preposterous” he had to leave the job he “loved” at Good Morning Britain, because he openly refused to believe the comments made by Meghan Markle and he was cleared of any wrongdoing by Ofcom last week.
The broadcaster was told to “apologise” for his remarks by ITV or leave his position on the breakfast show, which he claims was him being effectively “forced out” by the channel.
Since being cleared by TV regulator Ofcom, Piers has raged that he should never have had to lose his livelihood to begin with.

He wrote: “It was preposterous that I had to leave a job I loved.
“But it happened because the corporate world has been cowed into surrendering to the woke mob whenever it bays for blood.”
The TV host previously shared that Meghan herself had personally appealed to the head of ITV Dame Carolyn McCall to ensure Piers was reprimanded for his behaviour on GMB.
He continued in his MailOnline column: “I was reliably informed recently that Meghan Markle wrote directly to my ITV boss Dame Carolyn McCall the night before I was forced out, demanding my head on a plate.
“Apparently, she stressed that she was writing to Dame Carolyn personally because they were both women and mothers – a nauseating playing of the gender and maternity card if ever there was one.
“What has the world come to when a whiny fork-tongued actress can dictate who presents a morning television news programme?”
However, Piers has shared that he is now “delighted” to have been supported by Ofcom and have his “right” to disbelieve both Meghan and her husband Prince Harry’s claims against the Royal Family.
In a statement by Ofcom, they said restricting his views would be a “chilling restriction” on free expression but criticised his “apparent disregard” for the subject of suicide.
Ofcom said its decision was “finely balanced”, but that ITV had “provided adequate protection to viewers from potentially harmful and highly offensive statements about mental health and suicide”.
