Piers Morgan has declared he is to take part in his first interview since quitting Good Morning Britain, using the announcement to make a cutting dig at Meghan Markle’s bombshell chat with Oprah Winfrey.

Last month, it was announced that Piers, 56, was quitting ITV’s GMB after around six years on the programme.

His departure came after his comments on Meghan’s interview with Oprah spawned a record-breaking number of Ofcom complaints, after he expressed his disbelief over the Duchess of Sussex’s claim that she previously suffered suicidal thoughts.

Piers, who is rumoured to be joining GB News, revealed on Twitter that on Monday April 5, he will give his first interview since the dramatic turn of events.

‘UPDATE: On Monday, I will give my first interview since leaving Good Morning Britain to @TuckerCarlson on his new @foxnation show, with highlights that evening on his @FoxNews show, he wrote.

He then added: ‘Was I silent, or was I silenced?’ with a laugh-crying emoji, in a not-so-subtle nod to Oprah’s use of the phrase in the media mogul’s conversation with the duchess.

Piers’ interviewer will be American TV host Tucker Carlson, who has been the host of current affairs show Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News since 2016.
