TV Host Piers Morgan finally quits GMB after row with colleague over Meghan Markle

Piers Morgan has left ITV's Good Morning Britain following a row over comments he made about the Duchess of Sussex.

It brings the controversial host's time on the show to an end after six years.

ITV announced the decision after Ofcom said it was investigating his comments after receiving 41,000 complaints.

On Monday's show, Morgan said he "didn't believe a word" the duchess had told Oprah Winfrey about her mental health in an interview.

An ITV spokesperson 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 channel confirmed his departure from the breakfast news show will take effect immediately but declined to say who would be replacing him on Wednesday [today].

  1. Truth is nobody believes Mr & Mrs Meghan's script, the holes in their story pass holes for rice sieve, las las they will start forgetting their lines.

    In that same vein Piers Morgan spoke his opinion as he always does but shouldn't have addressed his colleague in the manner that he did.

    He can be overbearing with his opinions and can clearly dish it and not take it however he does make sense when not screaming at people.

    The show doesn't belong to him as he rudely claimed whilst strolling off the show, it's called "Good morning Britain, not "The Piers Morgan show" he was made to feel so because of high ratings he gave the show.

    I feel a little time off for him would do him good, give him time to dry off his inflated ego and get back to basics, because truth be told, he says it as it is, gets awareness out there for issues that would normally not be addressed, he pushes boundaries but like humans are...GETS CARRIED AWAY/DRUNK ON IT, so a healthy reminder is sometimes needed to straighten up.
