Richard Madeley brutally swipes Piers Morgan for storming off GMB set last year

Richard Madeley landed a brutal swipe about former news anchor Piers Morgan – who stormed off Good Morning Britain last year.

The television host, 66, was joined by Royal expert Chris Ship on Tuesday's programme (June 14), when talk turned to Susanna Reid's former co-star.

Chris was chatting away about Prince Harry's new tell-all book that will be released in the autumn when the conversation reverted back to the Meghan Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

With this, Richard couldn't help but make a stiff jibe about Piers, who famously waltzed off set last year – calling it quits on GMB after refusing to apologise over his opinion about Meghan's account.

Richard said: "Of course, one does wonder if those pictures of that very brief contact between Harry, Meghan and the Royals during the Jubilee weekend.

"Maybe that will be the last time that even happens with this book coming out that Prince Harry is writing or ghosting or however he's putting it together which is meant to contain explosive stuff that makes the interview with Oprah Winfrey look like a cosy chat."

Chris replied: "Well, I mean, we know how controversial that interview with Oprah Winfrey was, not least on this programme."

The Royal expert continued: "But yes, the book is due out in autumn [and] it's coming out with lots of other books at that time of year ready for the big Christmas market.

"And yeah, I mean, it's going to be a big deal."

"I think where we are with the book at the moment is they're deciding what to leave in and what to take out.

"And I think that's one of the big issues going on between Harry and his publishers at the moment.

"But the book is coming, and we'll be talking about that I'm sure on this programme in the autumn," finished Chris.

This was met with a tongue in cheek response from the TV veteran, who chimed in: "And maybe somebody will walk out, who knows?"

GMB airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
