Piers Morgan Quits 'Good Morning Britain' After Storming Off Set Over Meghan Markle Comments

ITV has announced that Piers Morgan will be leaving UK morning show Good Morning Britain amid his various repeated comments about Meghan Markle.

“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 network said in a statement (via Variety).

Just hours before this statement was released, Piers stormed off set after being criticized for his vitriol towards the former royal couple.

“I understand that you don’t like Meghan Markle. You’ve made it so clear a number of times on this program—a number of times,” Piers‘ co-host Alex Beresford said. “And I understand that you’ve got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle or had one and she cut you off. She’s entitled to cut you off if she wants to. Has she said anything about you since she cut you off? I don’t think she has but yet you continue to trash her.”

Piers got up and left at this moment, saying, “OK, I’m done with this. Sorry. No. Sorry. You can trash me mate, but not on my own show. See you later. Sorry, can’t do this.”
