PIERS Morgan famously stormed off GMB after an on air row with Alex Beresford.
It all started after The columnist and the show’s weatherman were locked in a war of words over their take on Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
What happened between Piers Morgan and Alex Beresford?
Their feud started over comments made by Piers in the aftermath of Meghan and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Piers – who is now fronting News Corp’s new show Piers Morgan Uncensored – has long been an outspoken critic of Meghan’s, and was outraged by the revelations made in the interview.
Fellow GMB star Alex criticised Piers’ take on the explosive interview, which they discussed on the ITV morning show the day after its airing.
During the debate, Alex responded to Piers’ claims that he used to talk to Meghan and she “dropped him” once she started dating Prince Harry.

He said: “I understand that you don’t like Meghan Markle, you’ve made it so clear a number of times on this programme, and I understand you’ve got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle and she cut you off.”
But Piers replied: “I’m not having this.”
Alex’s remarks prompted a dramatic exit from Piers, who stormed off the set.
He was off-screen for almost 20 minutes, but later returned, slamming Alex for “launching a personal derogatory attack” on someone that he works with.
Piers later quit his hosting role after six years, as he refused to apologise for his remarks regarding the Duchess of Sussex, which resulted in tens of thousands of complaints from viewers.
Are Alex and Piers friends?
As of April 2022 it is not believed that the pair have made up.
In fact, cheeky Piers has poked fun at Alex a few times.
In his Piers Uncensored column for The Sun in March 2022, he wrote about Will Smith’s Oscar scandal and joked that he would have slapped Alex if he didn’t storm off the GMB set.
Then on April 20, 2022 Piers talked about going on ITV’s Lorraine, and hinted at a second clash with Alex ahead of a comeback to his old stomping ground.
He shared: “I’ll be returning to ITV tomorrow for first time since the Markle debacle… live and definitely uncensored on Lorraine with the fabulous Lorraine Kelly – should be fun…”
With a cheeky jab, he added: “May even storm back onto Good Morning Britain while I wait and get those ratings back up.”
