PIERS Morgan has sensationally quit Good Morning Britain following his dramatic row with Alex Beresford.
Piers stormed off set during a huge row with his GMB co-host this morning after being criticised for his reaction to Meghan Markle’s bombshell suicide and racism comments during her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Tonight ITV said in a statement: “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.”
“I understand that you don’t like Meghan Markle, you’ve made it so clear a number of times on this programme. I understand you’ve got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle, or had one and she cut you off,” he said.
“Has she said anything about you since she cut you off? I don’t think she has, but yet you continue to trash her,” Alex added.
The comments clearly touched a nerve as Piers dramatically stood up and stormed off set, saying said: “Okay, I’m done with this… I can’t do this”
Exasperated Alex responded: “Absolutely diabolical behaviour, I’m sorry but Piers spouts off on a regular basis and we all have to sit here and listen.
Earlier today a petition to sack Piers Morgan from GMB over his comments about Meghan had amassed more than 88,000 signatures.
