PIERS Morgan has teased that he would only join BBC Breakfast if he was paid a lot of money and Dan Walker made his tea.
The 56-year-old is currently off screen after quitting Good Morning Britain -and Louise Minchin’s shoes will soon need to be filled on the rival breakfast show.

Discussing the prospect, he replied to a tweet, which read: “Could @piersmorgan be among those to replace Louise Minchin on BBC Breakfast?”
He wrote: “Definitely, if the BBC doesn’t mind smashing its pay structure & @mrdanwalker is ordered to make my tea.”
The controversial telly star wasted no time in trolling Dan yesterday following Louise’s announcement she was quitting after 20 years.

Dan tweeted that Louise’s departure from the show “feels like a break-up”.
“What am I going to do without Louise?” he asked.
Mocking him, Piers tweeted: “Stop blubbing Dan – I start Monday.

“BBC wanted the guy who beat you in the ratings, and the first same-sex male breakfast presenting team to appease the wokies.”
Earlier this year Dan mocked Piers for storming off Good Morning Britain and quitting the show in March.
But he later reached out to his enemy and said he’s a “decent man underneath the froth”.
Speaking to The Times, Dan said: “Piers and I have had a friendly rivalry, but it has been good for BBC Breakfast and GMB.
