Piers Morgan has joked he’s taking over Daniel Craig’s role of James Bond in the new films.

The former Good Morning Britain presenter light-heartedly broke the news on social media as he dressed in a suit outside the Burlington Arcade for the 007 installation launch on Monday.

‘BREAKING: Daniel Craig’s replacement as 007 finally revealed…’ Piers penned.

Daniel, who has played Bond since 2006, is due to retire his licence to kill after the release of the highly anticipated No Time To Die.

 It remains unclear who will take over the role of Bond, with speculation an actress or person of colour may be chosen for the role.

When asked if he would support a diverse appointment as his replacement, Craig told Radio Times: ‘The answer to that is very simple.

‘There should simply be better parts for women and actors of colour.

‘Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, but for a woman?’

Craig said the addition of Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge to the writing team was to ‘spice it up’ but she was a Bond fan so ‘she wasn’t about to take him in a different direction’.

Piers previously stated to the nation he won’t watch another James Bond movie ever again if they make 007 a woman.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain in 2019, he raged: ‘James Bond was created by Ian Fleming as a man, he’s always been a man, he should always be a man, and it’s not happening.

‘Otherwise I want Bridget Jones to be Brian Jones. I want Cinderella to be called Cinderfella.’

No Time To Die premieres at the Royal Albert Hall on September 28 and is released in UK cinemas on September 30.
