Prime Minister Boris Johnson's days in the job are numbered, says Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan.

What i have been struck by in the last 48 hours is the amount of friendly fire that Boris Johnson is now taking.

Piers said: "The Spectator buried him, The Telegraph buried him, The Times did an extraordinary piece saying he wants to be back with his ex wife, he is suffering from financial difficulties, he isn't earning enough money for his various families.

"He is lonely, he is ill."

Piers is convinced the PM is about to quit

It would not surprise me if Boris quit, there is no win for him here, everything is a loss and it's piling up.

He looks to me like a beaten guy, and this country needs more right now.

This country needs rallying, it needs clear consistent and firm leadership, and it needs someone who doesn't look like he's a beaten man.

Piers and Susanna Reid remarked on a YouGov that showed voters thought Labour leader Keir Starmer would make a better Prime Minister, and they also voted "don't know" as a better option than Boris.

Piers said this indicates Boris was "on the way out" after going through the results on the show.

"I think the excuse machine has ran out, look at Angela Merkel, she hasn't had one tenth of the issues he has had and how cack-handed this has been done," said Piers.

Piers also called for Boris to come on Good Morning Britain to answer his and Susanna's questions.

But the government has boycotted the show for 146 days, said Piers.
