PIERS Morgan’s long-awaited hour-long interview with Tucker Carlson took place on Fox Nation last night.
The talk show host sensationally quit Good Morning Britain after slamming Meghan Markle for complaining about the royal family.
Tucker Carlson presented a one-hour interview with Piers Morgan on Monday exclusively on Tucker Carlson Today on Fox Nation – but it wasn’t shown live in the UK.
A portion of the interview was to also air on Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight on Monday, April 5 at 8pm/ET – which is 1am in the UK.
It was Piers Morgan’s “first wide-ranging on-camera interview since leaving ITV’s Good Morning Britain,” according to Fox News.
His chat with Tucker encompassed “the reaction to his controversial comments surrounding the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle and his thoughts on the current state of the media,” it adds.
Piers also claimed his GMB co-host Susanna Reid was in ‘the grip of fear’ that an ‘online mob’ would force her off show after his shock exit.
“Susanna, my co-host for five years, is a good friend of mine.
“Honestly I think she was in the grip of fear, I think she was fearful that if she went too far saying nice things about me, the same thing might happen to her.”
He continued: “There would be a huge Twitter pile on, this is how it works, there was no real mainstream media interest in what I said on that Monday show.
“It was all being driven online by a very orchestrated mob.”
