Piers Morgan reportedly in talks to make more Life Stories for ITV

Piers Morgan could be headed back to British screens, amid reports he is in talks with ITV.

The 49-year-old host, who was dropped from US network CNN in February, is said to be in discussions with the UK channel over a new contract, which would see him front six more episodes of his Life Stories chat show. A new show, described as a ‘factual series’, is also in the works.

A source told The Sun: “We are talking to Piers about an initial run of six episodes of Life Stories next year and a new factual series. Negotiations are still ongoing and haven’t concluded yet.”

The former Daily Mirror editor signed off from prime-time talk show Piers Morgan Live for the final time in March, after three years as its host.

Piers previously said he was interested in making a return to UK screens.

“I have got plenty of offers to do stuff, but I have a good relationship with ITV and we are both keen to keep it going. We will sit down and talk about the future. But I want to do more,” he said.

“Money is never irrelevant, but it is not my motivating factor for doing Life Stories. I do it because I want to do a show in Britain. I am British and it keeps my hand in there,” he added.
