Piers Morgan will interview Donald Trump in his first international interview since becoming president of the United States.

Morgan will speak to Mr Trump at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Thursday.

The interview will be broadcast on Sunday January 28 on ITV at 10pm, after preview clips are aired on Good Morning Britain on Friday.

Morgan, who will be live from Davos, will also talk about his discussion with the president.

Following the announcement, Morgan shared a picture of himself filming in Davos on Twitter.

He wrote: “First clips from my world exclusive interview with President Trump will air on @GMB from 6am tomorrow morning.”

Morgan, 52, met Mr Trump in 2008 when he appeared as a competitor on the celebrity version of The Apprentice in the US, which he went on to win.

The presenter, who has previously said he is a friend of the president, interviewed Mr Trump in 2016 on Good Morning Britain and supported him throughout his presidential campaign.

However, Morgan last year aired his disagreement over Mr Trump’s ban on immigrants from seven majority Muslim countries.
