Former Good Morning UK presenter Piers Morgan broke his silence after ITV announced last night that he had left the show.
The network made a very brief statement which read: “After talking to ITV, Piers Morgan has decided that now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain.
“ITV accepted this decision and nothing more to add.”
This followed a dramatic breakout on yesterday’s show that resulted in Piers actually walking off the set.
He was challenged by co-host Alex Beresford when they discussed the Harry and Meghan interview.
On Monday’s show, Piers had denied Meghan’s admission that she had committed suicide with son Archie while she was five months pregnant.
Alex had been upset by his comments and had confronted him for his constant negativity towards her.
Piers clarified his comments on Meghan, saying he was out of her mind to know what was going on.
His opinion on Meghan’s mental health disgusted many viewers when Ofcom received an unprecedented 41,000 complaints in one day.
Piers, 55, was silent last night when news of his departure blew up social media.
However, this morning he made a statement and voted defiantly. He still doesn’t believe Meghan in her Oprah interview.

He wrote: “On Monday I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview. I’ve had time to ponder that opinion, and I still don’t know. If you’ve done that, OK.
“Freedom of speech is a hill I like to die on. Thank you for all the love and hate. I’m on my way to spend more time with my opinions. “
Aside from his own thoughts, he shared a picture of Winston Churchill and a quote from the former Prime Minister. “Some people’s idea of free speech is that they can say what they like freely.
“But if someone says something back, it’s an outrage.”
