Piers Morgan has joked that he is pre-emptively 'packing his bags' as he considers his future on ITV's Good Morning Britain.
The 55-year-old television presenter was speaking from experience as he geared up to accept the award for GQ TV Personality of the Year.
Writing in his Daily Mail column, the dad of four revealed that the latest nomination was a 'double-edged sword' because he had actually lost two jobs in the past after winning.
When he was notified of this year's nomination, Piers even considered whether he might be in for a third stroke of bad luck.
While Piers is appears to only be joking about his future on GMB, the presenter has been quite unlucky after receiving the award in the past.
For his first award, Piers was named Newspaper Editor Of The Year in 2003 before swiftly losing his job at the Daily Mirror.
"I lost both the jobs I won the awards for within a few months of the ceremonies, which rather took the gloss off things," Piers reflected in his column.
With this year's nomination for TV Personality Of The Year being linked to his role on ITV's Good Morning Britain, Piers was left thinking about his employment in the future.
He added: "Obviously, my first thought was ‘BOOM!’… and my second thought was ‘Oh no, I really enjoy doing Good Morning Britain’.
"Was it worth the risk to accept? I concluded it was, given that just walking out of our front doors these days presents a real and present danger to our lives.
"I do feel genuinely chuffed, though, even if I now have to start pre-emptively packing my GMB bags."
This year, Piers is up for his award for his efforts of holding the government to account and being a 'vocal critic' in their handling of the pandemic.
No government ministers were brave enough to face Piers on his show until recently when Matt Hancock finally stepped up to the challenge.
