Piers Morgan Exits 'Good Morning Britain' After Meghan Markle Comments

Piers Morgan is saying goodbye to Good Morning Britain.

“Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain,” the British network said. “ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add.”

Morgan’s decision came the same day that he stormed off the set of the morning show after receiving criticism from his co-presenter, Alex Beresford, about comments he made regarding Meghan Markle. 

Morgan previously slammed the Duchess of Sussex for her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, declaring on GMB,  “I’m sorry, I don’t believe a word she says, Meghan Markle.” 

Morgan later took to Twitter to respond to people calling out his hypocritical behavior after years of digging into guests and co-presenters on GMB

“I just prefer not to sit there listening to colleagues call me diabolical,” Morgan replied to one commenter. He added that he “went for a little cool-down,” adding that he later came back to have a discussion. 

Good Morning Britain also featured an interview with Markle’s estranged father, Thomas Markle, during Tuesday’s episode.
