Morgan left Good Morning Britain, dramatically storming off set yesterday, after he was criicised by co-hosts for persistently doubting Meghan was telling the truth about feeling suicidal. 

It comes after Prince Harry and Meghan sat down with American talk show host Oprah Winfrey in a bombshell interview which aired in New Zealand on Tuesday night.

Morgan's network received more than 41,000 complaints.

In a statement yesterday morning, ITV said: "Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain. ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add."

Morgan has stuck by his comments.

"Don't believe almost anything that comes out of [Meghan's] mouth and I think the damage is done to the British monarchy and the Queen and to the time of Prince Philip, who's lying in hospital, is enormous and frankly insensible," he told reporters.
