Piers Morgan has admitted that he is “delighted” after Ofcom found that he was not in breach of regulations with his Meghan Markle comments on Good Morning Britain.
The former GMB anchor, 56, was investigated by the broadcast regulator after his remarks about the Duchess sparked a record-breaking number of complaints, with over 41,000 complaints issued in just two days.
The controversial incident even led to Piers leaving his Good Morning Britain Job – after he dramatically stormed off of the set during a bitter row with his co-star Alex Beresford about the royal.
However, Ofcom concluded on Wednesday that Piers was not in breach of their broadcasting code.
In their report, the regulator stated that Piers was “entitled to say he disbelieved the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s allegations”, after he slammed their claims live on air.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote: “I’m delighted OFCOM has endorsed my right to disbelieve the Duke & Duchess of Sussex’s incendiary claims to Oprah Winfrey, many of which have proven to be untrue.
“This is a resounding victory for free speech and a resounding defeat for Princess Pinocchios. Do I get my job back?”
