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

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."
