Piers Morgan Walks Off GMB Set After Being Blasted By Co-Host Alex Beresford For Meghan Markle Comments
9 Mar 2021
Piers Morgan penchant for controversy has taken a new turn after he walked of the set of his “own show” this morning (March 9), following his co-host Alex Beresford condemning his comments on Meghan’s mental health.
In an interview with Oprah, Meghan revealed she previously had suicidal thoughts due to the abuse she had received when joining the royal family. On yesterday’s episode of Good Morning Britain, Morgan said: “I’m sorry, I don’t believe a word she said, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe it if she read me a weather report.”
Morgan has found himself busy these last few days in the build up and aftermath of Prince Harry & Meghan Markles’ interview with Oprah, offering what some would describe as scathing commentary of the the two but Meghan in particular.
His comments have left him in hot water with his co hosts and some of the general public who called out the irony of ITV letting him run the mental health campaign Get Britain talking, while freely casting doubt over someones mental health on national television.
Beresford noted the “overwhelming” amount of negative press Harry and Meghan have been subject to before turning his attention to Morgan.
“[Harry and Meghan] have had an overwhelming amount of negative press,” he said. “I watched the programme yesterday and yes, they had some great press around the wedding… but everything that has followed since has been incredibly damaging to Meghan’s mental health and to Harry.”
But what prompted Piers to leave was what Beresford said next.
“I understand that you don’t like Meghan Markle. You’ve made it so clear a number of times on this programme, and I understand that you had a personal relationship with Meghan Markle and she cut you off. Has she said anything about you after she cut you off? She’s entitled to cut you off if she wants to. And yet you continue to trash her.”
After this Morgan stood up and walked away from the Good Morning Britain set, saying: “OK, I’m done with this.” Beresford called his behaviour “pathetic” and “diabolical”.
