End clap for Piers Morgan. On Tuesday March 9, the co-host of Good Morning Britain made the decision to resign from the show he held the reins since 2015 with Susanna Reid. A sudden decision for the journalist, who has been widely criticized in recent hours for his vehement attacks against Meghan Markle, but also Prince Harry, after the broadcast of their event interview with Oprah Winfrey. “Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan decided that it was now time to leave Good Morning Britain. ITV accepted this decision and has nothing more to add,” the channel revealed in a statement, relayed by Forbes.
Perpetual detractor of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Piers Morgan thus collects months of criticism against the couple which have earned him the target since Monday March 8 by no less than 40,000 complaints and reports filed with Ofcom, the UK broadcasting regulator. In addition to increasing the number of tweets against the couple, the journalist has always said live in his show all the bad things they think of them, in particular of Meghan Markle, with whom he said he was close in the past before that she does not suddenly move away from him. A subject that was once again discussed on Tuesday, March 9, a few hours before his resignation.

I don’t think she did but yet you keep criticizing her. is devilish behavior, “he bluntly said, before Piers Morgan suddenly left the show. And he will obviously never return.
