Piers Morgan has declared his desire to be the next James Bond by showing off his credentials to replace Daniel Craig in the role.
The 56-year-old former Good Morning Britain presenter has tweeted a pic of him in a traditional pose of the 007 secret agent and teased fans that he should be in the mix when it comes to replacing Daniel Craig.
The TV presenter has attended a screening for the much delayed new instalment of the Bond franchise, No Time To Die, and has admitted that he would snap up the chance to be up on the big screen in the future.
After making the most of a photo opportunity at the screening, Piers was quick to share the results with his social media following and his fans were loving what they were seeing.
Pointing to the image of himself as he wears a sharp suit and white shirt, Piers joked that he was next in line.
He wrote: “BREAKING: Daniel Craig’s replacement as 007 finally revealed…”
Piers also posted the pic on Instagram and captioned it with an iconic phrase to show his credentials: “The name’s Morgan… Piers Morgan. #TimeToDie”
His fans were full of praise for the slimmer looking Piers, who lost weight during a recent Covid-19 battle and they reckon he is in good shape to take on the Bond role.
One commented: “You’re looking very trim there Piers.”
Another added: “Looking dapper piers. You legend.”
While a third wrote: “Think you would make a handsome Bond.”
Piers has been a jovial mood of late and took great delight in mocking his rival, Dan Walker, after Strictly Come Dancing’s launch show hit its lowest rating in 11 years.
He hit out at his BBC Breakfast rival after hearing the news of Strictly’s low ratings and thought it was the perfect opportunity for him to make a joke.
Taking to his Twitter, Piers retweeted the news that the dancing competition premiere only had seven million viewers compared to previous years.
“Congrats @mrdanwalker,” the 56-year-old tweeted along with a thumbs-up emoji.
James Bond: No Time To Die is in cinemas from September 30.
