Piers Morgan quits Good Morning Britain

ITV have confirmed Piers Morgan has quit Good Morning Britain, amid complaints about his on-air comments about Meghan Markle this week. 

The star clashed with GMB co-star Alex Beresford on the show on Tuesday, after his response to Meghan and husband Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey which aired on Monday night.

ITV confirmed: “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.”
