Piers Morgan breaks silence on Good Morning Britain’s 10th anniversary as he issues statement

Despite leaving Good Morning Britain in controversial circumstances in 2021, Piers Morgan has posted a message on social media to celebrate the morning show’s 10th anniversary.

Current presenters Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley marked the special occasion on Monday 29 April by introducing a series of clips of some of the show’s most memorable moments, including a glimpse of Piers, who worked on GMB for almost six years. Fans were not impressed with this brief anniversary nod to his long tenure on the show, with one writing on X: “A half-second clip of Piers Morgan in your ten year mash-up is a disgrace to the 50% of the pairing who put the show on the map.”

Piers, however, approached the perceived slight with humour, and posted an anniversary statement to his X and Instagram accounts, alongside two photos – one of his first day on GMB in April 2015, and one from his final day in March 2021. He wrote: “Happy 10th anniversary to Good Morning Britain. I spent five fun, eventful years there, and loved every minute. He’s a picture of me on my first (April 13, 2015) and last (March 9, 2021) day… divorce is never easy!”

He was, of course, referring to the way that he left Good Morning Britain in 2021, following an onscreen argument with weather presenter Alex Beresford.

The pair came to verbal blows when Piers reacted to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry ’s controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021. During the famous interview, Meghan talked about her mental health traumas and the racial micro-aggressions she had been targeted with during her time as a working royal, but rather than sympathise with her statements, Piers commented that he “didn’t believe a word” she’d said.

Alex objected to Piers’ remarks, and what he saw as the presenter’s relentless criticism of Meghan.

“I understand you’ve got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle, or had one, and she cut you off,” Alex said. “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.”

Alex’s comment prompted Piers to storm off the GMB set. His exit from the show was announced by ITV shortly after. Piers went on to present his own show for TalkTV, which has now moved to YouTube.

Following his social posts celebrating GMB’s anniversary, fans replied in support of the star. “Still miss you Piers!!” commented one, while another wrote: “They lost the best man on TV.” Others agreed, with one writing: “Stopped watching after you left,” and a fourth saying: “You should go back to mainstream television especially GMB. It’s certainly gone down hill since you left.”
