Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday
Trisha Goddard said Piers Morgan's furious rants about Meghan Markle following the Oprah Winfrey interview "saddened" her on Monday.
In response, the chat show host shared her hope that the 55-year-old’s sons will one day marry black women so he could "understand" the racism they go through.
Monday’s edition of Good Morning Britain was a tense one in the aftermath of Sunday night’s two-hour interview special with Meghan and Harry in America – set to air in the UK on ITV at 9pm on Monday, March 8.
The chat saw the pregnant duchess open up on her experiences of being a senior member of the royal family and the racism within.
In emotional scenes, Meghan claimed a senior member of the royal family "raised concerns" about "how dark" her and Harry’s son Archie’s skin would be.
Piers didn’t hold back as he declared he didn’t believe a word the duchess had uttered during the chat, prompting co-host Susanna Reid to try and reign him in.
When Trisha came onto the video link to offer her take on the interview, she took the TV host down live on air.
"If you tried to invent a show that had all this, you’d reject it as being too outlandish," Piers began, as Susanna offered a comparison to The Crown.
"Honestly, I wouldn’t," Trisha said firmly. "The name of the show would be 'bullying', Piers and I’m afraid you’d be the star."
Still unfazed by the bold claims, Piers shot back: "Really? Not Meghan Markle who drove out the female staff with her bullying, or does that not count?"
"Piers, listening to you this morning I’m saddened," said Trisha. "You know what I wish for you? I wish for you only really wonderful things.
"I hope that one of your sons meets a beautiful black woman and gets married to them and you will understand," Trisha continued, referring to his three sons Spencer, 27, Stanley, 23, and Albert, 20, from his first marriage to Marion Shalloe.

Still loving a debate as ever, Piers simply replied: "Actually I would love that. Why would I have a problem with that? Why does every criticism of these two have to be framed as racism?
"I’d also like to have her bullying investigated. The bullying that no one seems to want to take seriously," he said once more, which led to a reminder from Susanna that Buckingham Palace are already investigating the allegations from members of Meghan’s household staff in 2018.

As the presenter asked whether it would be racism in any context of that conversation, Trisha shared her thoughts in reference to her own experiences of racism.
"It only takes one straw to break the camel’s back and what gets me is why everybody else is such an expert about racism against black people," Trisha replied. "I’m sorry Piers. You don’t get to call out what is and isn’t racism against black people. You can call out all the other stuff, I’ll leave you to call out all the other stuff you want but leave the racism to us, eh?"
