Former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan, 56, went on to tell his fans that the paperback version of his book Wake Up is out today as he continued his rant about cancel culture. The journalist left the ITV show last month after refusing to apologise for comments he made about Meghan Markle, 39, which sparked over 51,000 Ofcom complaints.
Earlier today, he tweeted that ITV had offered his job back and he “decided to accept”.
He added: “The nation’s prayers have been answered. See you Monday!”
While many acknowledged he posted the tweet before 12pm on April Fool’s Day, others queried if it was true.
In his most recent video, he clarified it was a joke.
In view of his 7.9 million followers, he said: “OK, it’s gone midday, so I can tell you now that I’m not actually going back to Good Morning Britain.
“That was just a little April Fool’s joke but aw, did I catch some big fish with this one! Most amusing.”
He went on to say it’s also the publication day for the paperback of Wake Up.
Sharing details about his book, he said it was a defence for “freedom of speech and the right to have an opinion and an end to this ridiculous cancel culture” which he claimed is “wrecking our society”.
“Let’s get back to what made Britain great,” he continued. “The ability to disagree with each other and then go and have a pint in the pub”.
Piers went on to tell his fans where they could buy the book.
“I can’t think of a better way to stick it to the cancel culture mob, then to take the paperback of my book to number one as well.
“So help a jobless man in his hour of need,” he concluded.

Piers left Good Morning Britain after five years in the same week he sparked over 51,000 Ofcom complaints.
The father-of-four said he didn’t believe a word Meghan said in her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The Duchess of Sussex, who is married to Prince Harry, said she feared being left alone as she felt suicidal during her time in the Royal Family.
She also said there had been concerns about the colour of their son Archie’s skin by an unnamed family member.
Piers said he had to “agree to disagree” with ITV about his departure from the show.
He has since said he has “no idea” what he’s going to do next following his sudden exit, but joked it could be a politics role.
He continued in his Mail on Sunday column: “A flower seller on Kensington High Street stopped me today to proclaim, ‘Piers, mate, you should be Prime Minister.
“‘We’d all vote for you. You stand up for what you believe in’. Obviously, it’s a crazy idea.”
