Piers Morgan, 55, has tweeted back Jason Manford, 39, who appeared sceptical of the outspoken broadcaster’s opinions, particularly his latest view on Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey. The former Good Morning Britain host has said he “didn’t believe” the Duchess of Sussex had suffered suicidal thoughts while a senior member of the Royal Family.

Different opinion to me

On Twitter, Jason had shared a link to Piers’ latest article discussing his exit from GMB, after he refused to apologise over his comments about Meghan.

Alongside the piece he typed in view of his 373,700 followers: “I always think it’s a good idea to read all sides. I don’t agree with Piers over the Meghan thing at all, think he was out of order, but when he quit GMB, nobody cheered more than the politicians who no longer have anyone to ask the hard questions,” he added.

Piers shared the post from Jason and said the star was entitled to his “own opinion”.

“Fair enough… I respect your right to have a different opinion to me,” the former GMB host stated.

Underneath fans weighed in on the surprisingly civil exchange between the pair.

One referenced his on-air spat with an ex GMB colleague: “What is it that allows you to accept someone having a different opinion to you? Jason OK @alexberesfordTV not OK.”

A second commented: “It’s a strange thing to say: question the politicians but not Meghan.”

A third said: “I often disagreed with you on things but I was so grateful to you calling out the govt and holding them to account on their poor handling of the pandemic and them no longer being properly challenged angers me more than anything you’ve said that I disagree with.”(sic)

However, it seemed Jason, had suffered some trolling over his tweet to Piers, as the comedian later shared he had gone on a “blocking frenzy”.

He typed: “Always good to be retweeted by @piersmorgan cos you can have a lovely blocking/muting frenzy of quite literally some of the worst people on social media. 

“Every one of them with a fake name & dodgy profile pic! Cowardly & vile. What happened to Twitter, it used to be such a laugh?” 

Despite Piers’s success in his other endeavours, fans have pleaded for him to return to GMB and on Change.org his fans have created several petitions to have him reinstated.

One petition is titled: “Keep Piers Morgan on GMB for his common-sense approach to life.”

While another reads simply: “BRING BACK Piers Morgan!”

A third pleaded: “Save Piers Morgan from being sacked from GMB.”

While a fourth demanded: “Bring Piers Morgan back to GMB.”

A fifth said: “Resignation not accepted! Bring back Piers Morgan to GMB.”

It comes after Piers had clashed with GMB weatherman Alex Beresford, over his remarks on Meghan following her landmark interview with Oprah.

Alex had called Piers “diabolical” before the latter walked off the set.

Meghan had told Oprah during the televised interview earlier this month, that at one point she had “no longer wanted to be alive” during 2019 before stepping down from royal duties in 2020.

However, Piers maintained he did not believe “a word of it” which resulted in him clashing with Alex and subsequently handing in his resignation to ITV.
