Piers Morgan has dropped a big hint that he could be stepping down from Good Morning Britain.

Weeks after admitting this could be his last year on Good Morning Britain, Piers, 55, has teased a big announcement - leaving fans convinced he's quitting the show.

The outspoken TV star - who is currently taking some time off from GMB - tweeted, "I'll be making a big announcement at midday. Watch this space."

Fans flocked to ask what Piers' "big" news is, with them convinced he's about to step down.

"I hope you are not leaving GMB. We need you there," tweeted one fan.

Another said, "I genuinely hope your not leaving GMB. During COVID-19 you have said what we're all thinking and tbh you are the reason I get up early and know what day it is."

While he's often outspoken and controversial, it's clear viewers enjoy Piers straight-forward approach.

"Piers, you better not leave or quit the breakfast news. We need you. I beg you. I hope this not what you are thinking to do."

It comes just weeks after he admitted that his time on the show could be coming to an end relatively soon.

Piers read out a letter from a viewer, which partly read, “I thought I heard you state you were leaving at the end of the year.”

He then responded, “I’m not actually,” before adding, “End of next year… possibly.”

Piers and Susanna have made no secret of the fact the last four months of work have been incredibly tough thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.

In fact Piers' co-host Susanna admitted she's at "breaking point" and has quit social media following relentless abuse from online trolls.

The chat show star, who appears alongside feisty Piers on week day mornings, detailed in her Daily Mail column how she had received backlash recently for coming forward on social media to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Social media has become a dark place, and the sites need to clean up their act if they want people to keep using them. No one should be scared into silence by the trolls.”
