Morgan then left the programme after sparking controversy by saying he “didn’t believe a word” of what Meghan said in the interview she did alongside her husband Prince Harry with Oprah Winfrey.
During the chat, Meghan described how she asked for help when she was suicidal, but claimed she was not given the right support by Buckingham Palace. The Queen later said in a statement that the issues raised would be “addressed by the family privately”.
Since then, he’s been away from GMB, with Richard Madeley providing us with some brilliant Patridge-isms after stepping into the fold after his exit.
But what’s Morgan been up to since? Here’s everything he’s been spending his time on over the past 12 months.
Joining The Sun and starting work on a new show

Morgan didn’t wait long before considering his next career move after leaving GMB, after agreeing a return to TV and print after signing a deal to become part of Rupert Murdoch’s empire.
The British journalist and presenter has joined forces with News Corp and Fox News Media, where he will be the face of a new TV show that he describes as a “fearless forum for lively debate” which will “celebrate the right of everyone to have an opinion.”
He’s been keeping followers updated as he prepares to host a weeknight show which will hit screens this year on new channel Talk TV.
Morgan today posted a new teaser, promising to “cancel the cancel culture” and “annoy all the right people” with his new programme Uncensored.
He also previously confirmed he’ll write two weekly news columns for the New York Post and The Sun.
Getting roasted for his comments on Simone Biles
Morgan is never far from controversy, and he was met with widespread criticism after hitting out at US athlete Simone Biles.
Biles opted out of certain Tokyo 2020 Olympic competitions after receiving a poor result on her vault performance. The Olympian later admitted she had struggled with the expectations put on her.
After Morgan questioned whether mental health issues were a valid excuse for poor performance in sport, CNN’s anchor Brianna Keilar didn’t hold back when she ripped into him on air.
Being terrified about the idea of a female James Bond
Surprise, surprise Morgane was up in arms about the possibility of James Bond being played by a woman during speculation around casting following Daniel Craig’s decision to leave the role.
The broadcaster shared his views on the matter in his Daily Mail column where he accused “the woke brigade” of ruining everything “that’s good or fun in life.”
Crying after not being invited to Adele’s show
If I was at this #AnAudienceWithAdele, I\u2019d ask her two questions: \n1) Does the unctuous sycophancy from your celebrity fans make you want to vomit?\n2) How come you\u2019re singing more perfectly \u2018live\u2019 than on your records?\n* This probably explains why I wasn\u2019t invited.pic.twitter.com/ieswJonDMZ
Morgan was obviously upset after not being invited to Adele’s television concert at the London Palladium back in November.
He decided to criticise the singer anyway — resulting in him getting heavily roasted online.
Morgan tweeted: “If I was at this #AnAudienceWithAdele, I’d ask her two questions: 1) Does the unctuous sycophancy from your celebrity fans make you want to vomit? 2) How come you’re singing more perfectly ‘live’ than on your records? *This probably explains why I wasn’t invited.”
Hitting out at Emma Raducanu
Imagine if @EmmaRaducanu had taken Twitter\u2019s advice & carried on \u2018bravely\u2019 and \u2018heroically\u2019 quitting and losing\u2026 thank God she\u2019s made of tougher stuff & realised that winners don\u2019t quit & have to learn how to handle the pressure. That\u2019s why she\u2019s Champion today. Congrats Emma pic.twitter.com/0EBqiKi4ub
He wrote: “Ms Raducanu’s a talented player but couldn’t handle the pressure and quit when she was losing badly. Not ‘brave’, just a shame. If I were her, I’d tell my fans to stop abusing McEnroe, & seek his advice on how to toughen up & become a champion like he was.”
Lambasting Novak Djokovic
BREAKING: Covid rule cheat, immigration form liar, & anti-vaxxer icon Novak Djokovic loses final appeal against deportation & will be thrown out of Australia without being able to compete in Aus Open. Good. pic.twitter.com/nZAVgSsZK8
Sometimes, we can get on board with his outcries on Twitter – not least after tennis player Novak Djokovic had an appeal rejected on public health grounds, meaning that the unvaccinated sports star did not defend his title at the Australian Open in January.
Piers Morgan turned to Twitter to celebrate the decision, calling the 34-year-old “anti-vaxxer icon” a “cheat” and a “liar”.
He said: “Covid rule cheat, immigration form liar and anti-vaxxer icon Novak Djokovic loses final appeal against deportation and will be thrown out of Australia without being able to compete in Australian Open. Good.”
Slamming party gate
Piers Morgan - The court of public opinion has come back & found Boris Johnson guilty of the most brazen rank hypocrisy imaginable... public confidence has been destroyed... the govt makes these draconian orders & completely disregards them with impunity. \n\n#Phillips #goodmorningpic.twitter.com/eZ40z5omRg
Threatening to block anyone who sent him pictures of him and Ghislaine Maxwell
Now I've (again..) explained these pix, anyone who sends me them going forward to make some fatuous nonsensical 'GOTCHA!' point is getting blocked. You've been warned, so no tearful 'I was drunk, Piers, please forgive me!' pleas for mercy if you ignore this directive.pic.twitter.com/rRjJSK3Xum
Piers Morgan had a message for his followers back in January – tag him on pictures of himself with Ghislaine Maxwell, and they’ll be blocked.
Morgan made the promise in a tweet in which he included an old image of him pictured with Maxwell, as well as images of him with four other now-disgraced celebrities, including Harvey Weinstein and Rolf Harris.
“Now I've (again..) explained these pix, anyone who sends me them going forward to make some fatuous nonsensical 'GOTCHA!' point is getting blocked. You've been warned, so no tearful 'I was drunk, Piers, please forgive me!' pleas for mercy if you ignore this directive,” he wrote.
Criticising Kirstie Allsopp
Every time Kirstie Allsopp trends, I check why and see she\u2019s said another unbelievably stupid, ludicrously ill-informed and woefully privileged thing. \nThen I wait for her to respond to the entirely justified outrage by throwing her toys out of the pram & quitting Twitter again.
It turns out that Kirstie Allsopp’s comments about young people and property (which saw her claim they could afford home if they cut back on luxuries like Netflix) were so misguided even Morgan had a go at them.
In a tweet, the former GMB presenter called Allsopp "unbelievable stupid" for her "ludicrously ill-informed" remarks.
He wrote: "Every time Kirstie Allsopp trends, I check why and see she's said another unbelievably stupid, ludicrously ill-informed and woefully privileged thing.”
Finishing off Life Stories and handing over the reins to Kate Garraway
Morgan has hosted Life Stories since 2009, and he signed off with his final episode back in December, where he gave an emotional interview with Kate Garraway who discussed her husband Derek Draper’s long battle with Covid.
The series now continues with Garraway herself as host, welcoming her first guest Charlotte Church sitting down for an interview back in February.
