Piers and Alex Beresford, an ITV weather reporter, clashed back in March after Meghan Markle’s remarks in an interview with Oprah. This led to him running off the set.
According to the Duchess, her mental state had been affected by being a part of the royal family. The GMB host denied this claim and said that he didn’t believe her.
ITV issued a statement hours later confirming that the presenter had resigned from the show, after having presented it for six years with Susanna Reid.
Piers’ remarks led to Ofcom receiving a record 58,000 complaints. The regulator dismissed the complaint, ruling that Piers, the ex-newspaper editor, did not violate their code of conduct by his comments regarding the Suits actress.
