Piers Morgan’s new show Uncensored is the first television gig the former Good Morning Britain presenter has taken on since his notorious walk-off from the ITV show. It’s been reported remaining staff refused to have the 57-year-old on as a guest, allegedly threatening to “boycott” if his appearance was scheduled.
The last time Piers was in the Good Morning Britain studio as a broadcaster, he and weather reporter Alex Beresford got into an explosive row over Meghan Markle.
It happened in March 2021 following Piers’ admission he didn’t believe Meghan’s claims she had felt suicidal.
When he was considered to be returning as a guest, some ITV staff warned they would “down tools” over the decision.
An insider said: “Piers has made it quite clear what he thinks of GMB since he flounced out.
“Barely a day goes by without him sniping that ratings are down, and that he was the best thing about the show.”
Speaking to the Mirror, they continued: “So it’s no surprise there are some who felt reluctant to promote his new gig and threatened to stop working if he came on. There’s also a lot of loyalty for Alex.”
Express.co.uk has contacted GMB for comment.
