Piers Morgan’s Life Stories: ITV will film in Portsmouth tonight for new series
FILMING for ITV’s new series of Piers Morgan's Life Stories will take place in Southsea tonight.
A television crew will be at The Kings Theatre in Albert Road to capture footage of the venue’s An Evening with Sir Michael Parkinson event.
The arts hub confirmed the visit in a tweet, pictured, on Tuesday morning.
They said: ‘ITV will be here this Thursday (21st Feb) filming An Evening with Sir Michael Parkinson for the new series of Piers Morgan's Life Stories.
‘Be the first to see Parkinson's show by booking now.’
From 7.30pm, popular broadcaster Sir Michael will entertain crowds as he answers questions posed by his son, Michael Jr.
But theatregoers should not expect to see Piers Morgan – with the Good Morning Britain presenter currently stationed in Hollywood ahead of The Oscars on Monday.
Piers Morgan’s Life Stories has aired for 15 series since it began in 2009 and has seen interviews with stars including Virgin boss Richard Branson, Sir Elton John, Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon and former UKIP leader Nigel Farage.
Earlier this month Piers Morgan slammed the University of Portsmouth Student Union's decision to cancel its visit from the right-wing journalist Peter Hitchens – branding it 'self-righteous’.
The line-up for the next series of the celebrity’s talk show has not been released, but footage captured tonight is expected to be used, a Kings Theatre spokesman has said.
