Piers Morgan will not return to GMB despite 200,000 strong petition

Controversial presenter Piers Morgan has said he will not return to the Good Morning Britain sofa despite a 200,000-signature petition asking for him to be given back his job.

Morgan, 55, thanked people for supporting him after his no-nonsense dismissal of Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Morgan said he didn’t believe the Duchess of Sussex’ remarks about her mental health and suicide thoughts.


More than 41,000 viewers complained to the television watchdog Ofcom.

It’s reported Meghan herself made a complaint to ITV about the comments – but not the presenter.

When Morgan, 55, refused to apologise on air, he quit the show.

In response to three petitions, Morgan wrote on Twitter:

“I won’t be going back, but thanks to everyone who has signed these petitions.

“Normally, people start petitions to have me fired or deported, so this is a pleasant surprise.”

Morgan – a former Daily Mirror editor – stormed off set when tackled by weather presenter Alex Beresford about his attitude to Meghan.

Beresford, 40, tweeted: “I didn’t want him to quit, but I did want him to listen.”

He said challenging Morgan’s views was “not an outrage”.
