Kirstie Allsopp wants Piers Morgan back despite rows as he has 'guts to question things'

Kirstie Allsopp, 49, took to Twitter today to voice her support for ex-Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, 56. The pair have not always seen eye-to-eye in the past but the host said she admired him having “the guts to really question things”.

The Location, Location, Location presenter was writing in response to a Twitter follower earlier today.

Kirstie had bemoaned journalists not asking the right questions to the government.

She tweeted: “Still pleading for reporters to find their mojo and question Government on the prevention of vital family visits to those in hospital.

“Miles of column inches are being written on [David] Cameron’s lobbying, which Boris [Johnson] is no doubt lapping up, while real suffering goes unreported.”

As viewers will know, Piers left his role as co-anchor on Good Morning Britain last month following his comments about Meghan Markle.

The outspoken presenter said he didn’t believe her allegations during her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Appearing alongside her husband Prince Harry, Meghan spoke of her mental health struggles in the candid chat as well as making allegations about the Royal Family.

Piers’ comments led to more than 57,000 complaints to broadcasting regulatory body Ofcom.

As he explained in his Mail on Sunday column last month, he was then given the option to apologise or exit the show.

Piers chose the latter and has been open about his decision in several interviews since.

He has also said he has no plans to return to GMB any time soon.

After fans signed petitions for him to return, Piers tweeted: “I won’t be going back, but thanks to everyone who has signed these petitions.

“Normally, people start petitions to have me fired or deported, so this is a pleasant surprise.”

However, this has not stopped viewers hoping he will be returning in a new role soon.
