‘Time to hear MY truth’: Piers Morgan vows to reveal his side of the story regarding Meghan Markle row and his GMB exit in an explosive TV special

Piers Morgan has vowed to reveal what he calls, ‘MY truth,’ in a one-hour TV special, following his explosive Meghan Markle debate and subsequent exit from Good Morning Britain

The TV host, 56, quit the ITV show and walked off set in March after he clashed with weatherman Alex Beresford over the validity of Meghan’s shocking accusations towards the Royal Family during her Oprah Winfrey interview. 

And now, Piers is getting ready to set the record straight on Fox Nation’s Tucker Carlson Today show on Monday.  

The journalist will unpack the events leading up to his dramatic departure in his first tell-all interview. 

Confirming the news to his Twitter account on Saturday, Piers wrote: ‘Time for America to hear MY truth….’ 

In another update shared on Friday evening, Piers poked fun at Meghan, 39, as he referenced the moment when Oprah, 67, asked whether she was ‘silent or silenced?’ to which the wife of Prince Harry, 36, accused the Royal establishment of ‘silencing’ her. 

Casting doubt over the authenticity of her accusations once more, Piers used Oprah’s question to make light of his GMB exit. 

He jested: ‘UPDATE: On Monday, I will give my first interview since leaving Good Morning Britain to @TuckerCarlson on his new @foxnation show, with highlights that evening on his @FoxNews show. 

‘Was I silent, or was I silenced? (crying laughing emoji).’

Tucker, 51, also confirmed the news to social media as he shared an exclusive clip from the interview and said: ‘So, Piers Morgan was banished from television for asking a simple question, how is it that the most privileged people in our society get away with posing as the most oppressed?

‘For asking that they crushed him – they took his job away. On Monday we will speak to Piers Morgan for his first wide-ranging on-camera interview since he was cancelled.’

Last month, Morgan announced he had quit GMB after co-star Beresford challenged his comments about Meghan and her interview with Oprah.

The outspoken GMB host left the daytime series after he insisted he ‘didn’t believe a word’ of Meghan’s account of suffering suicidal thoughts and experiencing racism at the hands of the royal family.

Piers then walked off set after a fierce debate with Alex, in which the weather presenter accused Piers of unfairly ‘trashing’ Meghan, and branded him ‘diabolical’.

When Piers walked off screen, Alex continued: ‘I’m sorry but Piers just spouts off on a regular basis and we have to sit there and listen.’  

Piers, who refused to apologise, later announced his resignation and tweeted his thanks to the GMB team, praising them for their ‘hard work and dedication’ that led to them beating their main breakfast TV rival.

And the presenter shared his own reflections on the events of that fateful week in a piece for the Mail On Sunday last weekend.

Piers called Alex ‘GMB’s occasional stand-in weatherman’ and ‘uptight’ in the telling account, adding that the presenter hasn’t messaged him since his exit unlike others on the show.  

Reflecting on their now infamous encounter on GMB, which ended in Piers leaving the studio, Piers said he wasn’t going to sit there and be ‘whacked’ by one of his own team.

He wrote: ‘I don’t mind outside guests trying to make a name for themselves by whacking me like this, but I wasn’t going to sit there and take it from one of my own team, especially someone who I’ve gone out of my way to help whenever he’s asked me for advice about his career.

‘Realising I might say something I’d regret, I decided to leave the studio to cool down. 

‘As I walked off, Alex doubled down: “This is pathetic. Absolutely diabolical behaviour. I’m sorry but Piers spouts off on a regular basis and we all have to sit here and listen. From 6.30 to 7am yesterday, it was incredibly hard to watch.

“He has the ability to come in here and talk from a position that he doesn’t fully understand…”‘

Piers continued: ‘I didn’t hear any more of his diatribe, as I was out the door and heading for my dressing room.

‘I knew it wasn’t a good look, the great snowflake-basher running away from confrontation. And on reflection, I shouldn’t have done it. But in the heat of the moment, in my rather strained state of mind, this seemed the less worse option.’ 

Since Piers’ exit from the show he has received messages from several stars, naming Jeremy Clarkson and Bear Grylls, who have said he had a ‘right’ to say his mind.

Sharon Osbourne also voiced her support for Piers during an appearance on The Talk, though she has since parted ways with the CBS show.
