Piers Morgan reacted to Daily Star's PM for PM campaign during Wednesday's edition of Good Morning Britain.
Last week we jokingly asked our readers: "Would PM be a better PM than our current PM?"
We beamed an image of Piers Morgan onto the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday evening as we asked the nation: "Are we ready for #PMFORPM?
Piers, 57, is no stranger to holding our politicians to account on the ITV breakfast show and he's been delighted about our idea of having him running the country.
The TV star was back on GMB on Wednesday alongside Susanna Reid and he couldn't wait to bring up his face being plastered over the historical building last night.
The outspoken presenter said: "The Daily Star keep putting me on the front page wanting me to be Prime Minister.
"To illustrate this they video beamed me, thats not actually my body, in a pair of Union Jack Y-fronts onto the Houses of Parliament.
Co-star Susanna Reid, 50, added: "That's a sight for sore eyes this morning isn't it."
Piers continued: "Even I slightly barfed when I saw that. They've got a big poll, they also ran my manifesto which I ran recently in the Mail."
Since we began our campaign last week, Piers' odds to become the next Prime Minister were slashed from 500/1 to just 20/1 in just one day.
We beamed a giant image of Piers sporting patriotic red, white and blue budgie smugglers onto the side of the historic 300ft tall building next to the River Thames in London, which has been home to the UK Government for 161 years.
Piers for PM? Have your say!
The Daily Star has projected an image of Piers Morgan onto the Houses of Parliament – and we’re asking you are we ready for #PMFORPM?
Last week the Daily Star jokingly asked the question on nobody’s lips: Would PM be a better PM than our current PM?
And it seems we may have inadvertently unleashed a monster. Shy and retiring Piers – no stranger to holding our politicians to account on Good Morning Britain – leapt on the idea.
His odds were slashed from 500/1 to just 20/1 in a single day.
So, are you Team Piers or Team Bozo? Take part in our survey!
A growing army of fans including celebrities Mark Wright, Peter Andre and Christopher Biggins have said they want to see the TV motormouth in No10.
It came after Piers tore Government ministers to shreds live on air over countless bungled decisions during the coronavirus pandemic.
Reading our front page last week, Piers said: "It was a bit weird to wake up and see a headline that said `PM for PM’ – but if it’s time for me to serve my people, then it’s time.
"If Donald Trump can become President of the United States…As somebody who won his Apprentice show in America, I’m ready to step up."
