Piers Morgan stands by Meghan Markle comments and hints at swift return to TV in Sky News interview

"I think it's fair to say, although the 'woke' crowd... they think they've cancelled me, I think they'll be disappointed when I re-emerge."

Though he may have left his role as co-presenter of Good Morning Britain, it seems that Piers Morgan is going nowhere.

As happened when his time on TV in America came to an end, he looks set to find another platform from which to fill the airwaves with more of his own brand of content.

Speaking to Sky News the morning after his strop on live television and subsequent departure, Morgan said: "I believe in the freedom of speech, I believe in the right to have an opinion."

He stood by his comments on Meghan Markle, saying that he doesn't believe "almost anything that comes out of [Meghan Markle's] mouth" and went on to say he thought "the damage she's done to British Monarchy"  is "enormous and, quite frankly, contemptible".

"If people want to believe Meghan Markle, that's entirely their right. I don't believe almost anything that comes out of her mouth," he said.

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

Seemingly hinting at a quick return to television, meanwhile, speculation about which has been rife since his departure, Morgan added: "I think it's fair to say, although the 'woke' crowd... they think they've cancelled me, I think they'll be disappointed when I re-emerge."
