PIERS Morgan has doubled down on his criticism of Meghan Markle branding her claims ‘contemptible’.
The GMB host sensationally quit last night after refusing to publicly apologise for making a widely criticised statement that he didn’t believe a word Meghan said during her controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Speaking to Sky News from his home in London this morning, Morgan said: “I don’t believe almost anything that comes out of her mouth and I think the damage she’s done to the British monarchy and to the Queen at a time when Prince Philip is lying in hospital is enormous and frankly contemptible.
“If I have to fall on my sword for expressing an honestly-held opinion about Meghan Markle and that diatribe of bilge that she came out with in that interview, so be it.”
Ranvir said that she was glad to be there to support Susanna throughout today’s episode as his replacement, adding: “It can’t be easy”.
Piers stormed off set during a huge row with his GMB co-host yesterday morning after being criticised for his reaction to Meghan Markle’s suicide and racism comments during her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Last night 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.”
