Piers Morgan releases ‘campaign’ to become Prime Minister
Good Morning Britain‘s Piers Morgan, 55, may be a lot of things but we would seriously doubt he would ever stoop as low as the claims we woke up to yesterday morning. On a front page splash across the Sunday Sport, the publication had shared an exclusive that claimed Piers had eaten a pet hedgehog alive in front of some crying children.
Oh no, this could seriously damage my Prime Minister campaign
Sounds quite like an ill-humoured joke you’d hear on Would I Lie To You?
But after coming across the bizarre statement, Piers reacted in his usual sarcastic tone.
Taking to his social media channels, the ITV host didn’t bash the headline, or demand for an apology (if it’s untrue).
Instead, he noted it would simply harm his future career as Prime Minister, after he revealed his radical manifesto if he ever took office.

Alongside the newspaper front page, Piers joked: “Oh no, this could seriously damage my Prime Minister campaign.”
And fans had a field day with it.
“Can’t beat a hedgehog butty,” one giggled.
Another added: “Well you are a bit of a prick!”
“Was it nice? I’ve never tried hedgehog,” a third commented.
A fourth chimed in with a witty pun: “Is this why you have a sharp tongue?!”
Others went after the paper itself, wondering why the story made it to print.
“Do we need newspapers nowadays? Seriously!!!!!!” one snapped.
A second wrote: “WTH??? How can a headline like this even get printed? Shocking.”

Someone else focused on the positives and wondered whether Piers could actually make it to Number 10.
“You know what… I could actually see Piers as prime minister,” they said.
“Would he be a good one? Well everyone deserves the opportunity.”
It comes after what started off as a joke, ended in the TV star revealing his full manifesto if he was ever to actually run for office.
Jumping on the serious bandwagon, more and more people have started clamouring for him to take over the reins and restore some order to the nation.
He set out his 20 targets to fix Britain’s turmoil in his recent MailOnline column, including firing two thirds of the current “abysmal cabinet”, regulating Twitter, urgung the Queen to strip Prince Harry and Meghan of their royal titles, ban joggers from all high streets in Britain with “immediate effect”, invest in prison libraries and encourage all inmates to read, mandate vaccine passports for air travel and all UK social mixing and allow Scotland to go independent for two years.
With growing support for the outspoken presenter to take control, the bookies had their say and priced his odds 20-1 to be PM anytime in the next 10 years.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
