Piers Morgan congratulates Good Morning Britain on award despite storming off the show and quitting

PIERS Morgan has offered his congratulations to Good Morning Britain after it was nominated for a top award.

He applauded the show on Twitter weeks after quitting the show on the same day he had stormed off its set.

The tweet was seen by Piers’ 7.9m followers and has received more likes than GMB’s own tweet of the award nomination. 

He received 41,000 complaints for his comments on Meghan Markle’s Oprah interview.

The TV host, who had been on the ITV show since 2015, stormed off after becoming engaged in a row with co-star Alex Beresford.

The journalist, 55, had repeatedly made dismissive comments about Meghan's claims she was "suicidal" and suffered issues with her mental health while a Royal.

On his last appearance on Good Morning Britain, Morgan said he "didn't believe a word" of it.

When he was challenged over his comments by Beresford, the controversial TV figurehead stormed off set. 

ITV later said he was "being spoken to" by bosses – but it was later revealed he had dramatically quit.

ITV said in a statement: "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."

Former footballer and broadcaster Gary Lineker said: "Piers Morgan is excellent at what he does and I’m sure he’ll be back on the telly soon."
