Piers Morgan’s ‘Life Stories’ series is set to return to TV screens next month and Captain Tom Moore is among the guests to be interviewed.
ITV officials and the TV presenter himself announced the return of the interview series this morning.
It has been confirmed that two special episodes of the series – which first aired back in 2009 and has seen famous faces sit in the hot seat over the years – will air next month with footballer-turned-actor Vinnie Jones and of course, Captain Tom Moore.
Captain Tom Moore became a household name earlier this year after he completed 100-laps around his garden before his 100th birthday and earned himself a Guinness World Record through raising a grand total of over £32 million for NHS Charities Together in the process.
He also received a Knighthood by Queen Elizabeth II for his services to fundraising.
Announcing the special interview in a post on Twitter this morning, Piers Morgan said: “I’m beyond thrilled to announce that the magnificent Captain, Sir Tom Moore will be my guest on Life Stories in a special edition of the show to be aired next month.
“What a life, what a man. So looking forward to our chat”.
Captain Sir Tom Moore will join Piers Morgan – who he has spoken with regularly on Good Morning Britain along his incredible journey – in the studio as they discuss his remarkable life from WW2 hero to a 2020 national inspiration.
Speaking on the return of the series, Piers said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be interviewing two such great British characters.
“I’ve known Vinnie for over 30 years and Captain Tom for just a few months, but I’m a huge admirer of the way both men have handled the highs and lows of their lives and these promise to be very emotional and inspiring shows.”
Katie Rawcliffe – Head of Entertainment at ITV – added: “Piers Morgan’s Life Stories are always an in-depth and sincere look into fascinating characters’ lives, and these two won’t disappoint. Both Vinnie and Captain Tom promise to be special, heartfelt episodes and what better way to celebrate the return of this much loved series”.
