Good Morning Britain's Andi Peters has hinted that he’d love to replace Piers Morgan after the star’s shock departure from the show.

Andi was tagged in a tweet by a fan that said they want him to replace Piers as a presenter on the ITV news programme, and Andi has suggested that he’d definitely be up for the gig by his response.

In reply to a tweet that read: “If @piersmorgan has actually left @gmb there’s only one person to replace him @andipeters”, the 50 year old responded with a praying emoji.

Meanwhile, in another tweet Andi said it would be his “wish” to take over the presenting slot left by Piers.

After being asked by a follower: “You taking Pier’s job Andi? @andipeters” alongside a winking emoji, Andi said, “I wish.”

Andi is already a regular presenter on the early morning show and hosts competitions.

Last year GMB helped Andi celebrate his 50th birthday as he returned to the studio after months of presenting via video link due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Piers Morgan sensationally quit GMB Tuesday evening after storming off the ITV show over a row about Meghan Markle.

ITV confirmed that the 55 year would no longer be part of the show in a statement, which read: "Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain.

"ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add."

The news comes after more than 41,000 viewers complained to Ofcom following his remarks about the Duchess of Sussex.

Speaking on the ITV show, he expressed: "They don't know how to spell compassion. They trashed his dad, they trashed his brother, they trashed his sister-in-law.

"They've trashed everything the Queen has worked so hard to maintain, the monarchy, and we're supposed to believe they're compassionate?"

Co-host Susanna Reid responded: "They felt they were trashed and lied about. She said she was driven to the verge of taking her own life."

The former Britain's Got Talent judge added: "They said that yeah," hinting he doesn't believe her claims.

An Ofcom spokesperson said: "We have launched an investigation into Monday's episode of Good Morning Britain under our harm and offence rules."

Later on the programme, Piers stormed off after getting into an argument with co-star Alex Beresford, 40.

Alex told Piers: "They have had an overwhelming amount of negative press. I watched the programme yesterday and, yes, they had some great press around the wedding, but what press is going to trash someone's special day?

"There was bad press around the engagement, before the engagement, everything that has followed since has been incredibly damaging, quite clearly to Meghan's mental health and also to Harry.

"I hear Piers say, you know, William has gone through the same thing but siblings experience tragedy in their life. One will be absolutely fine and brush it off and the other will not be able to deal with it so strongly, and that is clearly what has happened with Prince Harry in this situation."

The weatherman continued: "He walked behind his mother's coffin at a tender, tender age in front of the globe. It's going to shake a young boy for the rest of his life, so I think we all need to take a step back.

"Has she said anything about you since she cut you off? I don't think she has, but you continue to trash her…" before Piers cut him off.
