Piers Morgan has apparently said he wouldn’t return to Good Morning Britain without an apology and that he has lined up an exciting “global" project instead.

The outspoken presenter, 56, stepped down from the ITV show in March after remarks he made about Meghan Markle sparked a record number of complaints.

Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom has now cleared Morgan over the comments – sparking speculation that he may get his job back.

When the ruling was announced, Morgan did tweet “Do I get my job back?”, but according to reports he has since told the Daily Mail he just did that “to prove a point”.

"I wouldn’t go back, not without a public apology and I’m not going to get one,” he has been quoted as saying.

“I’ve got much bigger things coming up. The future is exciting.

"The next project is global, it’s big.”

Morgan did not give more detail but said that people would hear about it within the next few weeks.

The broadcaster left the ITV show after sparking more than 57,000 complaints when he said he did not believe claims made by Markle in her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Ofcom has now ruled that the presenter was "entitled to say he disbelieved" the royal couple and that "the restriction of such views would be an unwarranted and chilling restriction of freedom of expression".
