Piers Morgan says he's 'still working' with ITV and 'wasn't fired' as he calls CNN co-star a 'treacherous backstabber'

PIERS Morgan says he's "still working" with ITV and "wasn't fired" as he called his former CNN co-star a "treacherous backstabber".

The presenter sensationally quit Good Morning Britain last week following his controversial comments about Meghan Markle.

However, Piers has confirmed he's "still working" with the channel despite walking out on their flagship news show.

He confirmed the news during a fiery Twitter confrontation with his former CNN co-star Ana Navarro-Cárdenas.

Retweeting an article about his departure from GMB, Ana wrote: "If no other change comes out of the #OprahMeghanHarry interview, that it lead to @piersmorgan getting fired again from yet another job, seems like a good outcome for the benefit of humanity."

Piers hit back: "Hi Ana, I wasn't fired by ITV (I'm still working for them) just as I wasn't fired by CNN (I was offered a new 2-year deal – ask Jeff). But great to see you're just as big a treacherous little back-stabber now as you were when I worked at CNN."

The presenter fronted his show, Piers Morgan Live, on CNN from 2011 to 2014.

The star also fronts his interview show Life Stories on ITV.

The TV host resigned from GMB when senior ITV executives said they wanted him to say sorry on air following 40,000 Ofcom complaints over his dismissal of the Duchess of Sussex's admissions on Oprah.

Piers told viewers “didn’t believe a word” of Meghan’s interview, in which she said she “didn’t want to be alive” after receiving heavy public scrutiny.

Piers is thought to be the subject of a £10million bidding war among TV bosses after receiving a flurry of job offers.

He has been publicly courted by both start-up news service GB News and news channels in America.

A TV source told the Mirror: “He has had millions of pounds worth of offers. He turned GMB into a ratings hit, it seems everything he touches turns to gold.

“People love his honesty, even the people that don’t like him, they can’t help but be interested in what he says.

“Some of the offers have hit the £10million mark, and it seems he may be able to land exactly what he wants.”

GB News boss Andrew Neil has also made no secret of wanting to bag Piers for his news network – even offering him a job on live TV.

He said ahead of its launch this month: "Any network worth its salt could find a role for a broadcaster of his calibre."
