Piers Morgan To Leave Good Morning Britain Following Meghan Markle Row by WesternOrbit: 3:00pm On Mar 09, 2021
Piers Morgan has left his role as a presenter at Good Morning Britain, ITV has announced.

In a statement, ITV said: "Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain.

"ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add."

The announcement comes after broadcasting regulator Ofcom launched an investigation after it received more than 41,000 complaints regarding comment made by the presenter following Harry and Meghan's interview with Oprah Winfrey.

After a clip aired of Meghan discussing her issues with mental health and suicidal thoughts and royal official’s knowledge of them, Morgan said during Monday’s programme: “I’m sorry, I don’t believe a word she says.

“I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report.”

An Ofcom spokesperson said: “We have launched an investigation into Monday’s episode of Good Morning Britain under our harm and offence rules.”

During Tuesday’s programme, Morgan addressed his comments about Meghan’s mental health.

He said: “When we talked about this yesterday, I said as an all-encompassing thing I don’t believe what Meghan Markle is saying generally in this interview, and I still have serious concerns about the veracity of a lot of what she said.

“But let me just state on the record my position about mental illness and on suicide. These are clearly extremely serious things that should be taken extremely seriously, and if someone is feeling that way they should get the treatment and help they need every time."

Morgan also stormed off set on Tuesday after co-presenter Alex Beresford branded his behaviour "diabolical" following his controversial remarks.

Speaking about the death of Diana, the 55-year-old former newspaper editor said Harry "couldn't let it go", but "William went through the same thing and he's managed to come to terms with the media and he works with the media".

Weather presenter Beresford then interjected and said the Royal couple had "had an overwhelming amount of negative press".

"There was bad press around the engagement... and everything that has followed since."

He added this had "been incredibly damaging, quite clearly, to Meghan’s mental health and also to Harry...

“And I hear Piers say William has gone through the same thing but, do you know what, siblings experience tragedy in their life and one will be absolutely fine and brush it off and the other will not be able to deal with it so strongly and that is clearly what has happened with Harry in this situation.

“He walked behind his mother’s coffin at a tender, tender age in front of the globe. That is going to shape a young boy for the rest of his life, so I think we all need to take a step back, and I understand that you don’t like Meghan Markle, you’ve made it so clear a number of times on this programme…”

“And I understand you’ve got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle or had one and she cut you off.

"She’s entitled to cut you off if she wants to. Has she said anything about you since she cut you off?

"I don’t think she has but yet you continue to trash her…”

Morgan then stood up and said: “OK, I’m done with this” and walked off set, saying: “Sorry, no… sorry, can’t do this…” as he stormed off set as Beresford called his actions "diabolical behaviour".

Finally! The man is so unprofessional!

When someone says that she feels like killing herself and you reply that you “don’t believe her” then you’re causing a major mental health problem

Hopefully all those crying racism over a woman who isn't even truly black will feel happy. You guys love bandwagons and the feeling of being "woke" more than you understand what you really want.

Only on this forum you hear that all white people are "bloody racists" and scheming against blacks day and night, nevermind that sounds very racist like what they try to condemn.

The perpetual Nigerian victimhood in a land where there are more whites than blacks, but they enjoy the privilege of the opposite when they are in Nigeria. The irony. Never once does it cross their minds that people just don't like people and it isn't always about their color.


Don't worry, all the whites will vacate their seats so that you can feel superior. It won't be racism. Your race will deserve it, just like theirs felt they do. The unending cycle.

What really do angry blacks want from whites? Heal, so that you don't filter everything through your wounds.

If you don't have salient points, don't quote with black superiority BS or the usual balderdash.

Piers Morgan is a strong conservative. Na people wey no know him views go dey vex.

Him dey give everybody hot, transgender o, glorifying fatness, extremist O, extremist feminist O, or anybody wey want change the culture, customs and traditions and he is unapologetic about it. Him dey give everybody hot hot.. He was on the side of Meghan at first until he found out who Meghan actually was.

He questions unnecessary changes in the society. E be like freeze of the UK.

He will not find any issues at all landing a good deal somewhere else.
