Piers Morgan, 55, dramatically exited Good Morning Britain earlier this month, but the presenter was in high spirits. It comes after the outspoken journalist revealed his book, Wake Up, is surging up the bestsellers list chart as he attempted to silence his critics.
Piers blew a kiss to his haters after the former presenter took to Twitter and cheekily gloated at those calling for his “demise”.
In view of his 7.9 million followers, the TV host tweeted: “Great to see Wake Up back in the Sunday Times Best-Seller chart for the first time in 10 weeks & at its highest ever position.
“I continue to be staggered by all the support I’m getting. Thank you! (And to all those still gleefully celebrating my ‘demise’, mwah),” followed by a kiss-emoji.
Piers released his book Wake Up last year, and it has since returned to the bestsellers list.
The book, which focuses on liberalism and cancel culture, is now sitting at number five.
Wake Up has seen a rise in sales following Piers’ controversial exit from GMB since it was published in October.
Piers resigned from his role on GMB two weeks ago and fans of the journalist have since petitioned for his return.
A petition calling for his reinstatement reached a reported 360,000 signatures.
Piers’ departure comes after he stormed off set following a heated discussion with co-star Alex Beresford over his comments towards Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex.
It was claimed that Ben Shephard will be the former host’s replacement on the show.
However, according to reports, ITV have dismissed the claims.
The network told Entertainment Daily that the reports are “completely untrue”.

A source previously told the Mail on Sunday: “TV and GMB bosses were totally unprepared for Piers going. Obviously the circumstances were out of the blue and nobody had a back-up plan.”
Of Ben, the source added that he is “adored by the staff and much of the audience”.
They added: “He certainly isn’t like-for-like for Piers, but then who is?”
Express.co.uk has contacted ITV representatives for comment.
Meanwhile, Piers cheekily replied to a social media user who claimed they weren’t a fan of the presenter but has since changed their mind following his GMB exit.
The person in question wrote: “I never liked Piers Morgan but I miss him sooooo much.”(sic)
Piers retweeted the post and said: “I may have this on my tombstone,” followed by a laughing-face emoji.
The small-screen star stepped down from his coveted role on GMB after six years on the programme.
