He was always likely to return to the nation’s TV screens with a bang – and now Piers Morgan has revealed the first interview on his new show will be with Donald Trump.
The controversial presenter has posted a dramatic video trailer for his conversation with the former US president, which will air with the launch of his show next week.
In a 30-second advert, the pair are seen clashing over Mr Trump’s claims that the last US election was rigged, and appears to show him storming off camera following what is promised to be “the most explosive interview of the year”.
Morgan’s 75-minute interview will be screened via TalkTV on Monday at 8pm.
TalkTV will air on linear TV platforms as well as online services such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and YouTube.
This comes after Morgan also announced he will also be returning to ITV for the first time in more than a year, as a guest on the Lorraine show on Saturday.
Speaking earlier this week, Morgan said he wants to “uncancel those who have been cancelled” and branded his departure from ITV last year a “farce”.
The former tabloid editor left ITV after storming off the set of Good Morning Britain when he said he did not believe Megan Meghan’s claims from her Oprah Winfrey interview.
His comments sparked more than 50,000 complaints, the most in Ofcom’s history, but the watchdog ruled that Good Morning Britain was not in breach of the broadcasting code.
“I thought the whole thing was a farce and I’m delighted that actually, as a result of the farce, we’ve ended up with a whole network which is now dedicated to preventing that kind of farce from recurring,” Morgan said.
