Earlier this week a petition to "remove Piers Morgan from GMB" got 93,000 signatures – but the presenter laughed it off.
"This is an absolute farce," the new petition reads.
"This man has stuck by our NHS when many others didn’t care including our government!
"He confronts the politicians on questions many of us want answering!
"He sponsored sir captain Tom £10,000 to start him off to support our NHS!
"Please sign this petition and share it on, give him the support that he has given us as NHS workers!"
Piers shocked fans by dramatically leaving Good Morning Britain after senior execs told him to say sorry on air following his heated clash with the show’s weatherman Alex Beresford over the Duchess of Sussex.
But Piers said he was not willing to apologise and walked – bringing an immediate end to his six-year stint on the morning show.
It comes as…
- Meghan Markle made a complaint about Piers Morgan to ITV
- Piers branded Meghan as 'contemptible' as he doubled down on his comments
- The GMB host hinted at quitting hours before he stormed off the show by tweeting he was 'dying of boredom'
- Piers said he 'work is done' after GMB beat BBC Breakfast's rating for the first time in history
- Susanna Reid paid tribute to her co-host
It was today revealed the Duchess of Sussex complained to ITV to raise concerns Piers' words might affect those struggling with mental health.
The 39-year-old Duchess told Oprah Winfrey she felt like she "didn't want to be alive anymore" in her bombshell interview on Sunday.
But on Monday's Good Morning Britain, Morgan said he "didn't believe a word" of it.
He then rowed with Alex and stormed off the set – before handing in his notice to bosses hours later.
And it later emerged he was ordered to apologise after bosses were contacted by the Duchess, but refused.
It's understood Meghan's complaint wasn't made over Piers' dismissal of racism allegations, or her claims that she wasn't supported by the Royal Family.
Ofcom launched an investigation after receiving 41,000 complaints over the host's comments.
