Alex Beresford Releases Statement After Calling Out Piers Morgan Live on TV, Causing Him to Quit 'Good Morning Britain'

Good Morning Britain‘s Alex Beresford, the weatherman on the morning show who called out Piers Morgan and caused him to storm off set, has just released a statement.

Since their on-air disagreement over the treatment of Meghan Markle by the press and public, Morgan quit the show. Morgan was very outspoken about his dislike of the Duchess while Alex supported her after the Oprah interview.

“There is so much that could be said. Piers‘ departure sincerely wasn’t the conclusion I was hoping for,” Alex posted in a statement on his Twitter account. “Over the last few years, Piers and I have had a lively, cheeky on-air relationship. We both wanted to be on the show Tuesday morning, and from our very public conversations on Twitter, we both knew how strongly our opinions differed on the treatment of Harry and Meghan pre and post the interview that has split the world.”

He also added, “I didn’t want him to quit but I did want him to listen. Personally, Piers has always support my growth. He’s given me advise on several occasions and for that I am grateful. I wish him well!”
