“You’ve made it so clear a number of times on this programme, and I understand that you had a personal relationship with Meghan Markle and she cut you off.
“Has she said anything about you after she cut you off? She’s entitled to cut you off if she wants to. And yet you continue to trash her.”
Piers walked off set after hearing the criticism, to which the weatherman continued: “Do you know what? That’s pathetic.
“This is absolutely diabolical behaviour. I’m sorry, but Piers spouts off on a regular basis and we all have to sit there and listen – 6.30 to 7 o’clock yesterday was incredibly hard to watch.”
Later that evening, Piers confirmed he had quit GMB after his comments led to over 41,000 Ofcom complaints.
