  • I believe in freedom of speech.

  • I believe in the right to be allowed to have an opinion.

  • If people want to believe Meghan Markle, that's entirely there, right?

  • That's it.

  • Thank you.

  • So this all started on Monday morning, when Good morning Britain was dominated by that Oprah Winfrey interview.

  • Piers Morgan during the show made it very clear that he said he did not believe a word of what Meghan Markle had said, saying if she read him a weather report, he wouldn't believe it.

  • And after the show, he took to social Media and told her a Pinocchio princess.

  • Now, by the end of the day, the mental health charity Mind had released a statement saying they were deeply concerned by what had happened in the show.

  • And this is very awkward for ITV because they have this campaign get Britain talking in which mind where a partner.

  • So on Tuesday's show, Piers Morgan was back, clashed with a fellow presenter, Alex Beresford, the weather guy, and actually walked off set for 10 minutes.

  • Now Piers Morgan has done things like that before and good morning, but people didn't read too much into that, But the story gathered momentum throughout the day.

  • By the afternoon off, Com, who are the regulatory body for TV, had received more than 41,000 complaints about what he'd said on the show on Monday.

  • That made it the second most complained about TV show in history behind Celebrity Big Brother in 2000 and seven, when Chopin, Shetty and Jade Goody had a head to head and those accusations of bullying.

  • What is going to be the most complained about TV show in history?

  • Dane Caroline McCall, who's I TVs boss, was speaking to the press yesterday about financial results.

  • She said she believed what Meghan Markle said, that I t.

  • V takes mental health very seriously.

  • So suddenly you had the boss of I, T.

  • V and arguably one of his biggest stars, absolutely at loggerheads.

  • And then after six o'clock yesterday came that statement saying Piers Morgan had decided the time is now to leave.

  • Good Morning Britain and I T.

  • V has accepted the decision and nothing further to add.

  • So the woke crowd would have thought.

  • They think that they've canceled me.

  • I think they'll be rather disappointed when I re emerge.

  • They re imagining what we call it a temporary hibernation.

  • But of course my opinions remain my opinions.

  • They can't silence that.

I believe in freedom of speech.
