Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan looks set to take his career to new heights after bookmakers slashed odds of him becoming Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in the next 20 years.

Coral have reported a stark rise in punters placing bets on Susanna Reid's co-host making it into Number 10 by 2040.

As a result, they have slashed odds from 500-1 to 50-1.

The betting giant believe that Piers' strong and vocal backing of the NHS during on ongoing coronavirus outbreak has put him in good stead with the normally polarised public.

Coral's Harry Aitkenhead said: "Morgan has been instrumental in campaigning for stronger measures to tackle Covid-19, and effervescent in his support and praise of the NHS, and plenty of people think he could do a better job that Boris at the moment.

"We've seen punters placing bets on Piers for PM and have slashed the odds on it happening."

The move would no doubt be praised by Piers' good friend Present of the United States Donald Trump.

During his time in the White House, Trump has granted Piers unparalleled access.

Last year Piers was even invited onto Air Force One to interview the president during a whirlwind stop in the United Kingdom.

Meanwhile, Coral also predict that Piers will receive an important nod on the Queen's next Honours List.

In fact odds of Piers being Knighted are now down to just 3-1.

"We're not sure if Piers has ever met the Queen, but if he carries on the way he is in this time of need he could well be booking himself an appointment early next year," added Aitkenhead.
