Holly Willoughby was quick to close Piers Morgan after jokingly suggesting that they host Good Morning Britain together.
Piers quit the ITV breakfast show in March after voicing doubts about Meghan Markle’s revelation that she had suicidal thoughts after joining the royal family during her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
He did, however, send a message to This Morning host Holly after a magazine identified them as the couple who could save the show amid reports of falling ratings since leaving.

In his Mail on Sunday Event column, Piers writes: “Holly and Piers – CAN THEY SAVE GMB?” Shouts the new cover of Woman Magazine.
“I wouldn’t hold my breath for this particular TV dream team,” he admitted.
“I want the largest locker room,” I wrote to Miss Willoughby. “
Then he revealed Holly’s response, which was, “You can have it. I will not be there.'”
Following Piers’ controversial remarks about Meghan Markle on GMB earlier this year, TV watchdog Ofcom confirmed that it would open an investigation under its harm and misdemeanor rules after over 40,000 complaints – a number that grew to over 57,000, making it the most common offending is -about incident in Ofcom history.

He also made headlines just hours before Piers’ exit when he stormed off the GMB set with colleague Alex Beresford during an argument over the Duchess – which Piers later admitted he regretted.
The host recently claimed he was approached by a third party about a possible return to the ITV show.
His former ITV breakfast colleague Lorraine Kelly recently admitted that she believes he will be returning to the show.
“He’ll be back in some form, I have no doubt about that. I don’t know, but never count him out, “she told The Sun.
“What kind of game is that where you beat things up and they keep coming back? That’s him. He’s still doing life stories and all that. He tweets his ass off and writes his columns.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if he came back. Nothing about Piers would surprise me. ”
Good Morning Britain airs on ITV at 6am on weekdays.
