Piers Morgan slams 'woke brigade' and makes GMB return claim

Piers Morgan has claimed Good Morning’s UK bosses notified him of his return to save reviews of the ITV breakfast program.

The 56-year-old TV presenter quit his six-year job at GMB in March after making controversial comments on Meghan Markle, 39, and her mental health problems since joining the royal family as Prince Harry’s wife.

Piers says the Duchess of Sussex was delighted to have stormed the ITV breakfast show.

But the mirror reports he believes he may be “back soon”.

“I’ve never been so popular”

Piers said in the Daily Mail: “She thinks she hit me?

“You might be surprised because I suspect I’ll be back soon.

“And my views certainly haven’t changed.

“If Meghan thinks she canceled me or won the fight, she will be in shock.

“I’ve never been so popular.”

“Never say never” on GMB return

Since the fallout, Piers has been claiming that ITV wants him to return to GMB even after finishing the show.

In his first newspaper interview since the drama, Piers claimed the network got in touch.

“You held out your hand – there were beginnings.

“Never say never,” he revealed.

“I have no doubt that I could bring the reviews back to where I left them – but the doubt is, would anyone be allowed to do it again?

“I was hired to express very strong, honest opinions, which I did.

“But in the end I was asked to apologize for a really held opinion,” he told The Sun.

Speaking of the broadcaster’s rivalry with the BBC, he said: “It saddens me to see all the hard work we have done to beat the BBC in audience numbers goes away so quickly.

“Her problem is training … but never saying never.”

Exit accused of “guard brigade”

In his latest newspaper column, Piers revealed his side of the story with which he sensationally left the ITV breakfast show in early March.

And he made it clear who he was blaming – critics he referred to as the “Woke Brigade”.

Recalling the events that led to his leaving GMB, the broadcaster admitted that he had “a bad night with insomnia” after hosting the show on Monday March 8th.

When the show hit Tuesday, Piers said he was “tired and excited” – and stormed off the set when colleague Alex Beresford “launched a very personal attack”.

He wrote about the moment he realized his comments had got him into serious trouble.

He said in his column: “Oh s ** t. This must be more serious than I thought.

“That afternoon called Kevin Lygo, ITV television director who I had spoken to several times since yesterday, and said we were ‘on the edge of the cliff’ now and either I apologized or I had to leave GMB.

“And even if I apologized, that wouldn’t be the end.

“The bright brigade would keep coming for me and demanding that I apologize for anything else they find offensive – which of course is absolutely everything.”
