Piers Morgan's Life Stories signs up NHS hero Sir Tom Moore, 100, for new series

Piers Morgan is going to interview national hero Sir Tom Moore as part of his new Life Stories series, new reports claim. 

The 100-year-old icon, still known best as Captain Tom Moore, became a household name thanks to his valiant efforts in fundraising at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Originally hoping to raise £1,000 for the NHS by walking 100 laps of his garden ahead of his 100th birthday, Sir Tom was backed by the nation, and ended his efforts with a £32million pot for those who were on the frontline. 

He then joked he’d be up for a skydive. 

He also got to Number One with his version of You’ll Never Walk Alone, beating RnB artist The Weeknd, and was promoted from Captain, to Colonel. 

In July, he completed his life’s ambition to meet Queen Elizabeth, who awarded him with a highly deserved Knighthood. 

Piers, who backed him with a £10,000 payment of his own, will now sit down with the man who inspired the UK – and talk about his long life which included serving in World War II and raising a family. 

‘In the dark days of lockdown, it was everyday heroes, not celebs, who brought joy to the nation,’ a source told The Sun. 

‘So while it’s normally scandalous figures who make the best episodes on his show, Piers knew Tom’s extraordinary, inspiring story would be a big draw.’ 

Metro.co.uk has contacted ITV for comment. 

Sir Tom will follow in the footsteps of stars including Caitlyn Jenner, Elton John, Barbara Windsor, Lionel Richie and Mel B – who have all taken part in the in-depth chat show.

Piers Morgan’s Life Stories will return on ITV.
