Piers shocked fans dramatically leaving Good Morning Britain last night after senior execs wanted him to say sorry on air following his heated clash with the show’s weatherman Alex Beresford over Meghan Markle.
Piers stormed off set during the huge row on Tuesday morning after Alex criticised him for his reaction to Meghan’s claims she contemplated suicide and was racially abused by the Royal Family.
But Piers said he was not willing to apologise, and walked – bringing an immediate end to his six-year stint on the morning show.
Writing on Twitter this morning, the outspoken host says he still doesn’t believe what Meghan said during her bombshell Oprah interview.

Piers told his 7.8million followers: “On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview.
“I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t. If you did, OK. Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on.
“Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more time with my opinions.”
He quoted Churchill on free speech, adding: “Some people’s idea of free speech is that they are free to say what they are like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage.”
