Piers Morgan breaks his silence on replacing Phillip Schofield
Morgan made headlines after leaving Good Morning Britain in 2021 after the show had a falling out with weather presenter Alex Beresford over the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Morgan said he doesn’t believe Meghan Markles’ claims. His comments sparked more than 50,000 complaints – the most in Ofcom’s history.
Schofield announced on Saturday (May 20) that he was stepping down from his role on This Morning, effective “immediately.”
The announcement comes after a tumultuous few months for Schofield.
He has been the focus of numerous headlines linked to reports of a falling out with his longtime This Morning co-host Holly Willoughby, his brother’s sexual abuse trial and public outcry over his visit to the late Queen Elizabeth II, who is laid out in the state.
Piers Morgan says there is “only one problem” with returning to ITV
Schofield’s departure left the door open for Moragn to return to ITV alongside Willoughby on This Morning.
He broke his silence on Sunday afternoon (May 21) and said there was only one problem with a potential comeback.
Thank you to everyone who suggested I could replace Philip Schofield on This Morning in a Lazarus-like comeback on ITV.
Unfortunately there is only one problem: I still don’t believe a single word of Meghan Markle! pic.twitter.com/PKAbTAYlvc
