A third said, “Well that’s great, I can watch ITV again in the morning!”
However, some savvy followers were not fooled by Piers’ post.
Hope this is true, but more likely it is an April Fool’s joke.
“If only that were true!” said one.
“I hope this is true, but more of an April Fools joke,” said another.
“Imagine if you were the person who actually fell for it …” Another laughed.
“Except that this is probably an April Fool’s joke! While I think GMB will regret their actions, I doubt Piers would now lower themselves to accept. You should apologize publicly! Said another.
Others predicted the tweet would cause ratings to surge on Monday when Piers said it would be back on our screens.
“Obviously an April Fool’s joke though @piersmorgan just gained weight @ GMB Reviews on Monday morning with people getting ready to see it! ” They said.
