QUITTING Good Morning Britain live on air was something Piers Morgan had thought about before storming off set earlier this month.
In a recently resurfaced clip from 2018, the former GMB host threatened he would one day “quit live on air”.

The clip shared on the Wall of Comedy Instagram page showed Piers sitting next to former co-host Susannah Reid and promise he would walk off set one day.
His tirade from an unknown date showed him gesturing in the exact direction he stormed off when he walked away from ITV’s Good Morning Britain earlier this month.
Piers declared in the video: “I will quit live on air one day, bang, out the door literally, into the car with trusty driver Gordon.
“And Gordon will say ‘where are we going’ and I’ll say ‘I don’t know, let’s just hit the highway’.”

The Wall of Comedy page, captioned the post “he spoke it into existence” and the caption on the actual video joked “this clip didn’t age well” with a series of crying and laughing face emojis.
Piers shared it to his own Instagram stories and disagreed about whether the story aged well or not.
“Au contraire.. it aged perfectly,” he wrote.
He quit in spectacular fashion during a row over on-air comments the controversial host made about Meghan and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

he said he did not believe Meghan Markle’s claims about her mental health.
She made the comments during her two-hour interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday, when she said she “didn’t want to be alive anymore”.
The Duchess of Sussex is said to have been worried Piers’ words might affect others struggling with similar issues.

Meanwhile, Alex Beresford finally returned to Good Morning Britain today – 10 days after his fiery on-air clash with Piers Morgan.
The 40-year-old star was back presenting the weather for the ITV breakfast programme at 6am, with Sean Fletcher presenting the main show until 6.30am when Kate Garraway and Charlotte Hawkins took over.
Kate told Alex that it was “lovely” to have him back, with Alex going about his job as usual – not mentioning the dramatic run-in with his former co-star, which saw 55-year-old Piers quit just hours later.
