Snowflake Piers Morgan quits Good Morning Britain in wake of ‘diabolical’ Meghan Markle row
Piers Morgan has “decided” to leave Good Morning Britain following his “diabolical” comments about Meghan Markle.
During the interview, the former duchess said she had experienced suicidal thoughts after marrying Prince Harry amid a media witch hunt, and detailed how the palace failed to support her while she was experiencing racist abuse.
The next day, weather presenter Alex Beresford described Morgan’s behaviour as “diabolical”, leading him to walk off set. It was also revealed that his comments were being investigated by OFCOM, after the media watchdog received 41,000 complaints.
Now, ITV has confirmed that Morgan has “decided” to leave the popular breakfast show.
It said in a statement: “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.”

Morgan’s favourite joke, which he has used time and time and time again, is to claim he “identifies” as various animals or made-up gender identities.
Presumably hoping that one day someone will laugh, Piers Morgan has identified as “Arsenal tragic gender”, “trans-slender”, a giraffe, a squirrel and a “two spirit penguin”.
