ITV came under fire for comments Morgan made on Good Morning Britain after the much-discussed interview between Markle and Oprah.
Speaking to Oprah, Markle said she had previously had suicidal thoughts during her time in England after marrying Prince Harry, because of the amount of criticism and abuse she was receiving from the press and public.
Addressing her claims on Good Morning Britain on Monday, Morgan said: "I'm sorry, I don't believe a word she said".
He added: "I wouldn't believe it if she read me a weather report."
