Piers Morgan petition passes an incredible 360,000 signatures as fans plead for GMB return

Piers Morgan, 55, resigned from Good Morning Britain almost two weeks ago, however, his loyal fans have since set up five web pages to get the star back on the ITV breakfast show. Since his departure from the programme, ratings have continues to plummet, and BBC Breakfast has stormed ahead in the viewing figures.

On Thursday, Only 840,000 tuned in to GMB, compared to 1.49million on the rival channel.

The programme has lost almost 40 per cent of its audience after Piers sensationally quit following an on-air row with weatherman Alex Beresford.

Thursday’s broadcast of the ITV morning show did pull in more viewers than its 800,000 audience on Wednesday, which had been GMB’s lowest-recorded show yet by Overnights.tv.

The programme, hosted by Kate Garaway and Susanna Reid, would not normally feature Piers, who was the regular presenter on Mondays to Wednesdays.

Since leaving the show, Piers’ book Wake Up has stormed to the top of the Best-Sellers list on Amazon.

The TV personality was “touched” so many of his fans had purchased the book, after stepping down from his six-year tenure on Good Morning Britain.

In view of his 7.8 million followers, Piers typed on Twitter: “BOOM! Wake Up is now Britain’s No1 best-selling book. 

“Amazing. Free speech matters.

“Very touched to see you many people support me. THANK you,” he added.
