Piers Morgan makes sly dig at GMB as fortune cookie promises him success

Piers Morgan took a savage swipe at Good Morning Britain when he received a cryptic note from a flattering fortune cookie.

The former GMB anchor used to present the ITV breakfast programme alongside his former co-star Susanna Reid, until he quit the show in dramatic fashion back in March.

Piers left GMB following a row over comments he made about Meghan Markle, and he even stormed off of the set during a broadcast after clashing with co-star Alex Beresford about the Duchess of Sussex.

It turns out that since leaving Good Morning Britain, Piers hadn't sat down to enjoy a Chinese meal.

However, when he finally got the chance to tuck into some Chinese cuisine again, Piers received a fortune cookie with a rather telling message that had him harking back to when he left the ITV show.

The broadcaster recently jetted back to his second home in Los Angeles.

When he read the cookie's cryptic note, Piers seemed to be delighted at what he'd been told by the treat.

That's because the cookie told him he had a "genuine talent", and promised him a glowing future of success.

Naturally, Piers couldn't resist taking a cheeky dig at his former news show by revelling in the cookie's compliment.

Taking to Instagram, Piers said: "My first Chinese meal since I left GMB – and this was my fortune cookie…"

He then shared a snap of the fortune cookie lying on a table, with a message that read: "Your genuine talent will find its way to success."

The cookie can't have been far off of the mark either, because it comes after Piers announced he's bagged himself a shiny new presenting job.

Piers is set to present on the television channel talkTV, which is being set up by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, which happens to be where Piers began his media career.

Talking about his new role, Piers said: "I'm thrilled to be returning to News Corp, which is where I began my media career more than 30 years ago.

"Rupert Murdoch has been a constant and fearless champion of free speech and we are going to be building something new and very exciting together.

"I want my global show to be a fearless forum for lively debate and agenda-setting interviews, and a place that celebrates the right of everyone to have an opinion, and for those opinions to be vigorously examined and challenged."

He went on: "I'm also delighted to become a columnist for The Sun and the New York Post, two brilliantly successful and popular newspaper brands.

"I'm going home and we're going to have some fun."
