PIERS Morgan’s long-awaited hour-long interview with Tucker Carlson took place on Fox News tonight.
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, April 5 exclusively on Tucker Carlson Today on Fox News.
The interview aired at 9pm BST (4pm/ET in the US) – but it wasn’t shown live in the UK.
A portion of the interview will 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.
Promoting the upcoming chat, Tucker said: “So Piers Morgan was banished from television for asking a simple question, ‘How is it that the most privileged people in our society get away with posing as the most oppressed?’
“And for asking that, of course they crushed him and took his job away.”
A source told The Sun: “Piers won’t be pulling any punches. He is still very disappointed about the way things finished at GMB.
“For a while there was anger, but now that’s switched to a determination – a determination to continue standing up for what he believes in.”
Highlights of the interview can be accessed via Fox News International, the broadcaster’s live digital streaming service for overseas users.
Fox News International is available through mobile and OTT devices, after launching in 2020 on iPhone, Android, Apple TV and Android TV, followed by Amazon Fire TV and Roku.
