Piers Morgan's Life Stories, also known as Life Stories, is a British television chat show on ITV, presented by journalist Piers Morgan. Recorded in front of a studio audience, each programme is devoted to one celebrity guest. Episodes are currently shot at The London Studios, although episodes were previously made at Teddington Studios and BBC Television Centre between one and two weeks before they are aired on television. From 2011 Morgan taped all of the episodes in advance before the start of a series owing to his (now former) commitment to the U.S. CNN channel.
