PIERS Morgan has named the “real culprit” behind him losing three high-profile jobs.
The 56-year-old star has revealed how each time he’s found himself unemployed it has come after winning a GQ Award – saying it’s an honour that has “cursed” him.
Piers quit Good Morning Britain last month rather than apologise for saying he didn’t believe Meghan Markle’s claims around mental illness in her bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview.
Writing in the Mail he explained he had won a GQ award in 2003 for campaigning against the Iraq War while at the Mirror – before losing his job there.
He was honoured again in 2013 for using his CNN show to slam what he called “America’s insane gun culture” – before losing that gig too.
So he said he was “extremely wary” when GQ boss Dylan jones offered him an award for his work interrogating the government during the coronavirus crisis.

He said: “I told Dylan I was extremely wary of accepting again when he told me I’d won another one, but he persuaded me lightning never strikes three times.
“Obviously, my first thought was “BOOM!”, I wrote in this diary about the news, ‘and my second thought was, “Oh no, I really enjoy doing Good Morning Britain.’
“The rest is history. The GQ curse has stuck again.”
