'Wanted moment of fame!' Piers Morgan claims Alex Beresford ‘rehearsed lines' for GMB spat

However, the star decided to further stir the pot yesterday when he tweeted out to his 7.9 million followers ahead of his appearance on Lorraine: “Anyone know who’s doing the weather on ITV tomorrow morning?”

Despite his defiant attitude towards Alex and GMB, who he has previously mocked for their declining ratings since his departure, Piers admitted in the interview that he did harbour some regrets about his exit. 

“I don’t think the walkout was a good thing,” he told The Times. “I just was annoyed, and thought the consequences of me not walking out, staying there, were probably worse than the consequences of being ridiculed for walking out.”

Piers refused to apologise for his comments last year, even after the Duchess personally contacted ITV’s chief executive Carolyn McCall, so his job with Good Morning Britain ended.

Alex spoke out about their public feud afterwards, tweeting: “I wish I had the privilege to sit on the fence. In order for me to do that I would have to strip myself of my identity and that’s not something I can do. 

“It’s not any of our places to pick apart claims of racism in order to make us to feel more comfortable.”

The controversial journalist and new host of upcoming show Piers Morgan Uncensored on TalkTV makes his dramatic return to ITV this morning. 

Watch Piers Morgan on Lorraine at 9am on ITV.
