PIERS Morgan today said he STILL doesn’t believe Meghan Markle and added: “Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on”.
The 55-year-old dramatically quit Good Morning Britain last night after senior execs said they wanted him to say sorry on air following his heated clash with the show’s weatherman Alex Beresford over Meghan Markle.

Piers stormed off set during the huge row with his GMB co-star on Tuesday morning after Alex criticised him for his reaction to Meghan’s claims she contemplated suicide and was racially abused by the royal family.
But Piers said he was not willing to apologise, and walked – bringing an immediate end to his six-year stint on the morning show.
He took to Twitter this morning to say he still doesn’t believe what Meghan said during her bombshell Oprah interview.
Piers said he has had time to reflect and came to that decision and thanked people for “all the love, and hate”.
He also quote Sir Winston Churchill and signed off by writing: “I’m off to spend more time with my opinions.”
Piers wrote: “On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview.
“I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t.
“If you did, OK. Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on.
“Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more time with my opinions.”
He quote Churchill on free speech, adding: “Some people’s idea of free speech is that they are free to say what they are like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage.”
