Piers Morgan jokes he’s landed movie role as he dresses in tux for night out with wife Celia after signing mega Sun deal

PIERS Morgan tonight joked he had landed a movie role as he posed dressed in a tux for a night out with wife Celia.

The new picture comes hot on the heels of the TV star revealing he was joining The Sun and News Corp in a huge global deal.

The couple were out on a date night at the launch of the Burlington Arcade 007 installation launch.

Piers couldn't help poking fun by suggesting he could be the next James Bond.

Taking to Twitter he shared the picture of himself all suited and booted for the night.

He wrote next to the picture: "Daniel Craig’s replacement as 007 finally revealed…"

Fans loved this cheeky caption, with one writing: "Move over Idris!"

Another wrote: "You could pull it off, as well, Piers! Good luck to you!"

Meanwhile, last week we revealed how Piers is returning to his roots to present a new global TV show and be a columnist for The Sun.

He will bring his vast experience and bold opinions to The Sun to tackle the big issues in his new regular column for our website and newspaper.

He will host a brand spanking new TV show to air weeknights in the UK, US and Australia.  He will also present a series of True Crime documentaries. 

Piers, who previously co-presented Good Morning Britain, said that his new show will be a "fearless forum for lively debate" which will "celebrate the right of everyone to have an opinion".

Announcing the news, Piers rejoiced that he’s “coming home” – while The Sun's Editor-in-Chief Victoria Newton hailed it a "bigger comeback than Ronaldo".

Speaking about his career move, Piers: “I’m thrilled to be returning to News Corp, which is where I began my media career more than 30 years ago.

"Rupert Murdoch has been a constant and fearless champion of free speech and we are going to be building something new and very exciting together.

“I want my global show to be a fearless forum for lively debate and agenda-setting interviews, and a place that celebrates the right of everyone to have an opinion, and for those opinions to be vigorously examined and challenged.

“I’m also delighted to become a columnist for The Sun and the New York Post, two brilliantly successful and popular newspaper brands.

“I’m going home and we’re going to have some fun."

Piers Morgan’s new show will air on talkTV in the UK, FOX Nation for US audiences, and on Sky News Australia. 

The show will be produced and filmed at News UK’s studios in London Bridge.

Celebrities including Piers Morgan and Vernon Kay arrive for the TRIC Awards 2021
