Journalist and presenter Piers Morgan appeared on BBC’s Sunday morning show to discuss the day’s papers and his return to screens with a new show.

The 56-year-old told presenter Sophie Raworth: “I haven’t been on breakfast television for nearly a year.”

Inevitably, Morgan jokingly threw in a jibe towards his former Good Morning Britain role: “It feels weird but nice. And my one question for you is... Am I allowed to have an opinion? Because that was the problem before.”

She responded: “Well, you’ve come to tell us about the papers.”

The pair discussed the latest news, including Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Novak Djokovic’s deportation and the notorious Downing Street parties.

“The court of public opinion has come back and found [Johnson] guilty of the most brazen rank hypocrisy imaginable,” Morgan said.

“This was... literally minutes after [Oliver Dowden] had the brass neck to stand there at the Downing Street press conference and order everybody ‘you’re allowed to only meet one person, outside, at two-metre distance from another household’”.

Attention soon turned to his new show under Rupert Murdoch’s news corporation.
