Piers Morgan launched her new TV show Piers Morgan Uncensored with an explosive interview with Donald Trump on Monday night.
The former US President sat down with the 57-year-old presenter in a pre-recorded conversation that saw the pair talk about Piers’ explosive exit from Good Morning Britain.
Ex-Good Morning Britain presenter Piers turned to the subject at the end of the first season of his new flagship programme, saying: “Trump backs my walk from Good Morning Britain”.
Piers explained to Trump that he chose the title because he “lost” his last job, which Trump said he saw in the scandalous clip.
Trump added: “I think you overreacted,” before going on to say that “the guy,” referring to Alex Beresford, was “a stiff guy.”
Piers replied, “It wasn’t really about the walk so here’s what happened,” Trump said, “You did it about him.”
Piers is gearing up for the flagship show on brand new TV channel TalkTV as part of a three-year £50m deal.
The debut of Piers Morgan Uncensored comes just over a year after the TV presenter shocked the nation by storming live broadcast of ITV’s Good Morning Britain.
The Marmite presenter walked off the set after a fiery clash with weather presenter Alex over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Ofcom received more than 41,000 complaints after Piers claimed he “didn’t believe” Meghan told the truth while discussing her “suicidal” thoughts.
When Alex criticized Piers for his “totally insidious” behavior, his opponent stepped out abruptly and said he was “done with this”, although he later back to the live show.
Piers later said he had to leave Good Morning Britain to avoid being stabbed in the head by “weather deputy” Alex Beresford.
Speaking at an awards ceremony, he said: “I shouldn’t have walked away when I did… because the weather guy said something nasty.
“It was either giving him a Glasgow kiss. I decided that wasn’t going to go down very well. ”
Piers hasn’t spoken to Alex since because “he was annoyed enough when I worked with him – why should I bother now?” He also said he now rarely watches ITV programming.
But he added: “I want them to be successful. I put my heart and soul into it for five years. Obviously it’s different without me – they have to struggle somehow.”
