Piers Morgan has officially quit the morning show Good Morning Britain.
Yesterday, Piers Morgan responded to the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle interview with Oprah Winfrey, saying he "didn't believe a word" of Meghan's comments about her mental health struggles.
He added: "I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report."
Morgan later clarified his comments, saying he was referring to the interview overall, and takes mental health issues seriously.
Piers Morgan also stormed off the set during a discussion with weather reporter Alex Beresford, who said: "I understand you’ve got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle, or had one, and she cut you off.
"She’s entitled to cut you off if she wants to. Has she said anything about you since she cut you off? I don’t think she has but yet you continue to trash her."
Watch the exchange here.
Morgan's comments sparked 41,000 complaints and an Ofcom investigation.
After his departure, ITV released a statement reading: "Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave 'Good Morning Britain'.
"ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add."
The TV presenter has taken to Twitter since.
Sharing a Winston Churchill quote, he wrote: "On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview. I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t.
"If you did, OK. Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on. Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more time with my opinions."
Today on Good Morning Britain, his co-host Susanna Reid addressed his departure.
She said: "It is certainly going to be very different but shows go and so on we go."
She also noted: "He is without doubt an outspoken, challenging, opinionated, disruptive broadcaster.
"He has many critics and he has many fans."
