THE race to replace Piers Morgan is hotting up as a host of stars join the mix to replace the former GMB star.
The likes of Richard Madeley, Ben Shephard and Adil Ray have been slated as the top three TV figure in the running to replace Piers’ daily morning slot by Labrookes.
Ray is currently the favourite to take over the GMB mantle at 2/1, while previous favourite and Tipping Point presenter Shephard is the bookies second choice at 5/2.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Adil Ray is leading the way in the race to replace Piers on GMB, although no less than five names are priced at 4/1 or shorter as things stand.”
It comes as Piers’ book Wake Up topped the Amazon bestseller charts and TV execs engaged in a ‘£10M bidding war’ for the former GMB host.
And over the weekend Donald Trump blasted Meghan Markle as “no good” but said he didn’t want to end up “like Piers” by speaking out publicly.
The former US President reportedly made the light-hearted comments to senior adviser Jason Miller who revealed them during an appearance on Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast.
