Last week, Piers Morgan took to Twitter to declare: "Do I get my job back?" after he was cleared by Ofcom following his comments about Meghan Markle on Good Morning Britain. And in his latest new! column, Peter Andre backs his friend Piers to get his job back and said he "wouldn't be surprised" if we saw him on GMB again.
Pete also discussed how grown up his 14 year old daughter Princess is getting, and told us he's been cherish family time. Sign up – for free! – to see what he has to say below.

Piers in the clear
Now Piers Morgan has been cleared by Ofcom over the comments he made about the Duchess of Sussex on Good Morning Britain, I wouldn’t be surprised if the show wants him back!
There’s no doubt Piers is the best at what he does and it would be great to see him and Susanna Reid back together.
There is tension at the moment between cancel culture and freedom of speech, and there is a fine line. Let me be clear: racism, sexism or bullying aren’t acceptable and should not be tolerated, but equally, people should be able to have freedom of speech.
It doesn’t mean you have to agree with what Piers says. Many films and programmes face this problem, and even we have on the set of Grease The Musical.
Some say, “You can’t say that, it’s sexist!” or, “You can’t do that, it’s not PC enough!”, but it’s in the script and you can’t change history.
Freedom of speech is a human right and if you don’t like something, then maybe you just shouldn’t watch or read it.
We promised we’d take the kids to The Shard in London and have some lunch where we stayed for Emily’s birthday, so last week we did just that.
The little ones especially were mesmerised by it! We had a wonderful day and we also went to the Tower of London.
It’s really good that J and P were part of the day, as well. Junior’s just about to start college and any spare time he has he’s in the studio, so to have us together was really nice.
Princess posted a beautiful picture of herself and Emily from the day and people were shocked at how much taller and older Princess looks.
She’s definitely growing up fast and, thankfully, is still as respectful as ever.
Strictly caters for all
Colin Jackson has said he wants more older people to take part in reality shows after Bill Bailey won Strictly and he reached the final of Dancing On Ice.
I actually think they’ve had a good mixture of older people taking part in Strictly over the years like Lesley Joseph and Johnny Ball, and the show is good at being open to everyone.
At the end of the day, it depends whether or not someone older wants to do it as, let me tell you, it’s very intense! But as some have proven, age is no barrier.
Love over science
When I get a break from Grease I’m looking forward to putting my feet up and watching some TV.
Everyone’s talking about Married At First Sight UK. It’s an interesting show due to the concept that therapists and psychologists try to match everyone up scientifically, based on things like interests, to find the perfect partner.
I don’t know if I agree as everything could be perfect on paper, but someone could have a habit that really annoys the other person!
To me, unless you spend time with a person, you don’t know how you’d feel, no matter how good-looking they are or you share similar interests.
I guess Emily and I were friends for two years before we even got together, so we had that solid foundation.

Changing the rules
Instagram is to require everyone to enter their date of birth before using the app to make it safer for children under the age of 18.
As a dad of two teenagers, I think it’s a good move. Young people are at the beginning of this whole social media generation and it’s tough.
You worry about what they could be exposed to, so anything that can be done to make it safer, I love.
I was reading that China has banned under-18s from playing video games during the week, and at weekends they can’t play for longer than an hour. I don’t think we should go that far, but social media and gaming do seem to be taking over!
