The moment Piers Morgan storms off GMB set after controversial Meghan Markle comments

Piers Morgan will reunite with his former Good Morning Britain colleague Erron Gordon for his new TalkTV show.

Earlier this month, it was announced that Morgan would be joining the new TV channel that is being launched by Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch. Morgan’s primetime show will air weeknights in the UK, US and Australia.

The show will be directed by Gordon, who was responsible for launching GMB and Peston on ITV. He will join News UK Broadcasting as executive creative director and head of studio output.

Discussing Gordon’s appointment, Morgan said: “I only want the very best working on my new show and after the five years we spent together on Good Morning Britain, I know Erron is the most talented TV director in the country.

“I’m absolutely delighted he will be joining us on this exciting new challenge.”

Gordon said that the opportunity to work with Morgan again was “impossible to resist”.

As well as his primetime show, Morgan has signed a wide-ranging deal to join News Corp and Fox News Media.

At the time, he said that he was “thrilled to be returning to News Corp, which is where I began my media career more than 30 years ago”, adding: “Rupert Murdoch has been a constant and fearless champion of free speech and we are going to be building something new and very exciting together.”

The TV presenter left ITV earlier this year over a row about comments he made about the Duchess of Sussex.

Morgan said that he hadn’t believed a word of what Meghan had said about her mental health in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
