Piers Morgan slams pranksters as they contact friends for fake obituary

Piers Morgan has hit back at pranksters who have been contacting his friends for a fake obituary.

The Good Morning Britain host slammed those involved in the death hoax, having a few choice words for them.

He tweeted: ‘To the pranksters currently contacting all my famous friends asking them to tape a contribution to my obituary for ITN… maybe stop being annoying little d**kheads?’

Piers, who has recently been involved in a Twitter spat with Bette Midler, has been enjoying a summer break from Good Morning Britain, which he usually presents alongside Susanna Reid.

The pair are set to return on September 1, with fans hyped for things to get back to normal on the show.

In their absence, the likes of Ranvir Singh and Adil Ray have been taking on the presenting roles.

A new promo clip was recently released to announce the return of the usual Good Morning Britain and This Morning teams to ITV for the autumn onwards.

As the small clip shot through kaleidoscope-like squares, stars including Stacey Solomon, Judi Love and Brenda Edwards shared videos from their time in lockdown, as they also adjusted to time in quarantine. 

Taking a line each, the leading team of GMB, Lorraine and This Morning shared the new mission, and told viewers: ‘We’ve had a hair cut. And a pint. We’ve been reunited with loved ones. Out to eat. Met friends. Back to school. And adjusted to a new normal.

‘We’ve had twists and turns. We’ve had ups and downs. We’ve begun to expect the unexpected.

‘What will September bring? No matter what comes next. We’re with you every step of the way.’ 

Piers then ended the video by stating: ‘In a world where everything is different. Not everything needs to be a new normal.’
