Piers Morgan has decided to leave his presenting role on ITV’s Good Morning Britain following controversial comments he made about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
In the couple’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan said she felt like she “didn’t want to be alive anymore”.
But on Monday’s Good Morning Britain, Morgan said he “didn’t believe a word” of it.
The remarks sparked 41,000 complaints – leading to an Ofcom investigation.
Mental health charity Mind said it was “disappointed” by his comments and thousands of viewers followed suit – making official complaints
The 41,000 so far is already higher than the number that built up after the Britain’s Got Talent Black Lives Matter row last year (24,500).
And it is more than Celebrity Big Brother in 2018, when ex-Emmerdale actress Roxanne Pallett falsely alleged she had been assaulted by fellow housemate Ryan Thomas (25,327).
