Piers Morgan has announced he's returning to ITV just one week after leaving his role on Good Morning Britain.

The 55 year old quit GMB after storming off set and refusing to apologise for his various scathing rants about the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle following her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

However, he's now revealed he'll be returning to the TV channel for the next instalment of his show Life Stories, where he will be interviewing Coleen Nolan.

Sharing the news on Twitter, the star shared a photo of himself and the 56 year old, which he captioned: "Reports of my ITV demise have been greatly exaggerated…. I’m back already", followed by two hands pointing down emojis.
