Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan, 55, who hosts his self-titled show Life Stories, has discussed the celebrities he has lined up for early next year following his emotional interview with Vinnie Jones. The ITV host said after a rare encounter with Sir Michael Caine, he could be next on the list.
One last push.
It comes after Piers was asked which celebrities he would love to interview on Life Stories in his next series.
He divulged: “We have a few more lined up for early next year, which I can’t reveal at the moment, but which I’m really pleased about.”
However, Piers shared: “I did have a great moment in a restaurant the other week when one of my number one targets, Sir Michael Caine, was sitting on the next table and I did not let the opportunity pass by without making one last push.
“He actually said he is going to watch the Captain Tom interview and he is going to see if he likes it and if he does, he is going to do Life Stories.”
Piers concluded: “So… there’s a lot of pressure on Captain Tom’s shoulders now!”
Sir Michael is an actor, producer and author who has appeared in more than 130 films over his 60-year career in the industry.
The revelation comes after the GMB host addressed how he first met Vinnie Jones, his most recent Life Stories interviewee.
After knowing the former footballer for 30 years now, Piers described him as one of the most “charismatic” people he has ever met.
The ITV broadcaster opened up about the time he was Vinnie’s boss while he was one of his columnists.
“Over the years I’ve employed Vinnie as a columnist, then had to fire him – he talks about that in his previous autobiography at great length – and I’ve been in a nightclub when someone has come up behind me and nearly throttled me to death and I’ve suddenly realised it was Vinnie,” he revealed.
Despite their “ups and downs”, Piers said they have now become “great friends”.
Piers first met the X-Men star when he was a local reporter for the Wimbledon News, before landing his Showbiz Reporter role for The Sun.

He went on to describe Vinnie as a “bundle of energy,” who works “incredibly hard” and socialises just as hard.
Piers also addressed Vinnie’s beloved wife Tanya, who he talks about in great length during his interview.
Tanya died last year at the age of 53 after her devastating six-year battle with cancer.
He expressed: “He is a remarkable character, but it will be a very different Vinnie who I interview 10 years on from our first Life Stories encounter.
“He has now been tee-total for seven years, and his beloved wife has so sadly died, he has a very different life now.”
Vinnie and Tanya tied the knot back in 1994 in Watford, where the star used to play football professionally and how he initially rose to fame.
Soon after they wed, the couple headed to Los Angeles so Vinnie could pursue his career in acting and start their life together as a family.
The film star is known for his appearances in X-Men: The Last Stand, Mean Machine and Swordfish.
Piers Morgan’s Life Stories airs tonight at 10pm on ITV.
