Alex remained calm during the tense exchange

Alex came to blows with 55-year-old Piers over his view on the royals’ bombshell Oprah interview.

He tweeted: “I wish I had the privilege to sit on the fence. In order for me to do that I would have to strip myself of my identity and that’s not something I can do.

“It’s not any of our places to pick apart claims of racism in order to make us to feel more comfortable.”

This Morning, shocked viewers watched as Piers walked off the show when Alex made the debate “personal”.

Giving his views on the interview, Alex told Piers: “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… 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, but yet you continue to trash her.”

Interrupting Alex, Piers got up and walked off set, huffing: “I’m not having this”.

Piers and Meghan famously went for a drink in June 2016, around the time that she started dating Prince Harry, but he claims he never heard from her again.

Making his way to the studio exit, he continued: “Sorry, see you later, 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.

“From 6.30 to 7am yesterday, it was incredibly hard to watch. He has the ability to come in here and talk from a position that he doesn’t fully understand.”

As he trailed off, shocked Susanna said that everybody needed a “break”, as the show cut to advertisements.

When the show returned, Charlotte Hawkins took over – welcoming viewers back as though nothing had happened while Alex, Susanna, and Piers remained off-screen.

Piers returned to the set almost 20 minutes later, where he slammed Alex for “launching a personal derogatory attack” on someone that he works with.

Piers said: “What we need to do is talk about it in a civilised manner, considering we work on the same show on the same team.”
