Piers Morgan is leaving Good Morning Britain after Meghan’s remarks

Piers Moran has insisted his now infamous exit from Good Morning Britain was a complete “farce”.

The 57-year-old stormed off the set of the ITV show in March 2021 after getting into an explosive debate with Alex Beresford following his controversial comments about Meghan Markle.

The TV presenter had long made his opinions of the Duchess of Sussex clear, but following her explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, Piers’ comments became too controversial for GMB viewers.

As a result, his comments sparked a record 58,000 complaints at Ofcom and his time on Good Morning Britain ended abruptly after six years.

Piers lifted the lid on his controversial exit from the ITV show, insisting: “The whole thing was a farce.”

The presenter went on to say that his GMB exit was for a reason, as he’s now “excited” about his brand new show, Uncensored, which grants him freedom of speech.

Piers said: “I’m delighted that we’ve ended up with a whole network now committed to preventing this type of farce from happening again.

“You shouldn’t be shamed, slandered, or fired for having an opinion.”

Ahead of Uncensored’s debut on News UK’s TalkTV channel, Piers has revealed that his former ‘Good Morning Britain’ co-star Susanna Reid wished him the best of luck.

The couple co-hosted the ITV show for six years before Piers’ controversial exit last March.

Piers’ brand new show is scheduled to start at 8pm on April 25 and each episode will be 60 minutes long and air weeknights.

Uncensored, Piers’ talk show return will mark more than a year after his departure from Good Morning Britain.

Piers lifted the lid on his new venture in March, revealing: “A year ago today I was forced to leave a job I loved at the height of its success because I had the audacity to speak an honest opinion.

“This should not happen in any democracy that claims to be built on the principles of freedom of speech and freedom of expression.

“I am very excited to now return to live television with a new daily show whose primary purpose is to break the cancel culture that has infected societies around the world.

“I want it to be a platform for lively, lively debate, topical interviews and that increasingly taboo three-letter word: fun. I also want it to annoy the right people.”

Uncensored begins next Monday at 8pm on News UK’s TalkTV channel.
