Both petitions saw a dramatic increase in signatures after Piers raised 4,000 complaints about his “combative” talks with Minister of Care Helen Whately and Secretary of Health Matt Hancock.

55-year-old media personality criticized after explosive feud with Minister of Care as she tried to defend why so few people in care homes were tested when thousands of patients were already deceased.

Some viewers said that Piers “intimidated” him, while others insisted that the presenter was doing his job and holding the minister “accountable”.

Last week, the television watchdog revealed that 281 people opposed Monday’s show, where the presenter launched a tirade after being accused by deputy deputy Andrew Bridgen of “Rant” against Boris Johnson.

Returning after a week off due to a coronavirus alert, Piers asked him if he was allowed to visit two of his adult sons if he followed social distancing rules.

Andrew Bridgen replied, “As far as I’m concerned, I don’t speak for the government, as long as you maintain a social distance in what you do. “

The response elicited an angry response from Piers, who said he was “completely against the new rules.”

Following aggressive interviews, the GMB host, 55, was described as “one of the most heinous public figures in our country” in the online petition to get him fired.

Meanwhile, another petition put in place to keep him on the air for his “common sense” has now also collected more than 58,000 signatures.

The petition states: “Keep Piers Morgan for his sensible approach to life. He’s also funny !! He is not afraid to speak up and says what many of us think. “

Piers revealed that he was aware of both campaigns and joked on Good Morning Britain when they were first revealed: “You can’t take me away, I currently identify myself as a penguin so it would be cruelty to animals . “

Piers, he continues to be a outspoken critic of the government’s approach to coronaviruses, and he has accused cabinet ministers of refusing to be interviewed by him on GMB in recent days.

The journalist said that the way the daytime broadcast was avoided by the Prime Minister and senior ministers was “shameful.”

He fumed: “I think it’s shameful. I think this is completely wrong. The reason why Matt Hancock [Health Secretary] is not doing our show because the government sent a procession of extremely poor junior ministers who could not answer basic questions about it and we got angry with them.
