Piers Morgan: GMB host credits show for ‘lifting’ his mood following death of manager

At the weekend, Piers Morgan paid tribute to his manager John Ferriter, who died on Thursday at the age of 59.

The Good Morning Britain host shared pictures of himself and John to his social media followers where he praised his late friend. 

And yesterday, Piers said his mood had been “lifted”, thanks to a few contestants in Love Island.

The ITV favourite re-posted a video of Islanders Anton Danyluk, Curtis Pritchard, and Belle Hassan chatting about Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.

As they spoke about the Conservative leader, Anton confused him for former tennis champion, Boris Becker.

Piers, who regularly slams Love Island stars, appeared to enjoy the hilarious gaffe and captioned his post: “Sometimes these cretins are just what’s needed to lift one’s mood.”

The star has long been a critic of Love Island and regularly hits out at them for having “no brain-cells”.

Elsewhere, Piers received a message of support from his Good Morning Britain co-host Susanna Reid.

Susanna offered her condolences after Piers confirmed his manager, John, had died in a Twitter post.

The presenter re-shared his tribute and said: “So sad. I knew John briefly but long enough to know he was loyal, determined and great company. Devastating news.

“Hard to believe. Huge love to all of John’s family and friends.”

Piers credited John as being “ferociously loyal” and added that he “trusted him” with his life.

Sharing a photo of him with John, he told his 6.7 million followers he had “enriched his life”.

He wrote: “RIP John Ferriter, 59. My brilliant manager and ferociously loyal, kind, charismatic & supremely talented friend.

“I trusted him with my life, and he enriched my life so much.”

He added: “Thank you John, for everything you did for me, and for my family.”

The talent manager was best known for his lengthy stint at the William Morris Agency.

He began his 19 years at the agency as an assistant in 1991 and went on to become Executive Vice President/Worldwide Head of Non-scripted Television.

As well as representing Piers, John also listed Mark Wright as one of his clients and the star credited him for “bagging” his “dream job” in America.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV from 6am.
