Piers Morgan has “predicted fireworks” after Lord Sugar was announced as a guest in the brand new series of ‘Piers Morgan’s Life Stories’.
The ‘Good Morning Britain’ presenter will be coming face-to-face with his arch-nemesis and Twitter rival on his self-titled celebrity interview show, with ‘The Apprentice’ boss set to be the fifth and final famous face to feature in the much-anticipated ITV series.
In a statement, Piers: said
“I’ve tried for 10 years to get Lord Sugar to do ‘Life Stories’ but he’s always bottled it. Now we’re going to finally get it on, and I predict fireworks. With his late addition, I think this new series is now officially the best line-up we’ve ever had.”
The 72-year-old businessman will join a stellar line up including Sir Michael Parkinson, ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ winner Harry Redknapp, Michael Barrymore and Spice Girl Mel B.
Lord Sugar added:
“I know he’ll try to make me cry but he’s got more chance of becoming Pope.
“Morgan talks a great game but can’t walk it, as viewers will discover with this interview.”
ITV commissioning editor for entertainment Asif Zubairy said:
“Piers has three traits that scare interviewees but that audiences love: he’s curious, determined and forensic.
“This series is one of the best yet and people should be prepared to learn some surprising truths about celebrities they thought they knew everything about.”
This news comes as Piers’s campaign to return a Big Ben costume to marathon runner Lukas Bates, after it went missing from a pub after the race, has been retrieved and was modelled by a member of crew live on ‘Good Morning Britain’ on Tuesday (07.05.19).
Piers previously offered to donate £1,000 to charity if the outfit was returned to its owner, and he has now vowed to pay the money, admitting it is for a “great cause”.
He said on ‘GMB’:
“I launched a massive appeal and we’ve nailed it. Because in the studio, right now, is the Big Ben.
“It’s back! This is what this show does. It gets justice for people who run around marathons. I will pay that this morning, willingly. It’s a great cause.”
