ITV presenter Piers Morgan has quit morning show “Good Morning Britain.”
The U.K. broadcaster confirmed in a statement on Tuesday evening local time that “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.”
His shock departure from the popular morning program he co-hosts with Susanna Reid comes less than an hour after an investigation was launched by British media regulator Ofcom into his comments on Monday’s edition of the program. Morgan said he didn’t believe Meghan Markle’s comments about her mental ill health, which she made during her and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, which was broadcast in the U.S. on Sunday evening.
