Piers Morgan Breaks His Silence After Quitting Good Morning Britain

Piers Morgan has broken his silence after quitting Good Morning Britain.

The TV host wrote on Twitter: "Thinking of my late, great manager John Ferriter tonight. He'd have told me to do exactly the same thing."

He added a hashtag that encouraged people to trust your gut.

Morgan departed GMB after six years in the hot seat in the most dramatic fashion today (March 9).

His ITV colleague Alex Beresford pulled him up on his 'diabolical behaviour' over his comments on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah.

Talking about the interview and the couple's decision to leave the UK to start a new life in the US, Beresford said: "They have had an overwhelming amount of negative press.

"I watched the programme yesterday and yes they had some great press around the wedding, but what press is going to trash someone's special day?

"There was bad press around the engagement, before the engagement and everything that has followed has since has been incredibly damaging, clearly, to Meghan's mental health and also to Harry."

Speaking to Morgan, he added: "I understand you don't like Meghan Markle, you've made it so clear a number of times on this programme and I understand that you had a personal relationship with Meghan Markle and she cut you off.

"But 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, yet you continue to trash her."

Morgan walked off the set during the live broadcast and said it wasn't a stunt.

ITV later released a statement saying he had officially departed from the show's line up.

Morgan was particularly criticised for not being more sympathetic to the Duchess of Sussex, especially after she expressed she once had suicidal thoughts.

Mental health charity Mind said it was disappointed in his comments and was in contact with ITV on account it supported the network's mental health campaign.
