Piers Morgan news – Ex GMB host ‘bombarded with job offers’ after quitting when ITV demanded apology over Meghan Markle


PIERS Morgan has hinted at a comeback as he was “bombarded” with job offers after he quit ITV.

The GMB host sensationally quit after refusing to publicly apologise for making a widely criticised statement that he didn’t believe a word Meghan said during her controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey.

It was revealed Piers quit after after senior execs asked him to say sorry to Meghan live on air after the Duchess contacted ITV to complain about the GMB host.

Speaking to Sky News from his home in London, Morgan said: “I don’t believe almost anything that comes out of her mouth and I think the damage she’s done to the British monarchy and to the Queen at a time when Prince Philip is lying in hospital is enormous and frankly contemptible.

“If I have to fall on my sword for expressing an honestly-held opinion about Meghan Markle and that diatribe of bilge that she came out with in that interview, so be it.”

A close source said: “Overnight he was flooded with offers and suggestions for new deals — some pretty interesting ones, plus a few wild and wacky offers which he had a laugh about.”

Piers stormed off set during a huge row with his GMB co-host yesterday morning after being criticised by co-host Alex Beresford for his reaction to Meghan Markle’s suicide and racism comments in her Oprah interview.
