TV Host Piers Morgan Cleared By Ofcom Over Comments He Made After Meghan Markle's Oprah Interview.

Ofcom has ruled that Good Morning Britain was not in breach of their broadcasting code over comments made by Piers Morgan about Meghan Markle earlier this year.

The presenter faced a huge backlash when he cast doubt on claims made by the Duchess of Sussex during her TV interview with Oprah Winfrey,

During the live broadcast in March, Piers and co-host Susanna Reid were shown a clip of Meghan telling Oprah she’d experienced “suicidal thoughts” after joining the Royal Family.

Meghan said in the footage: “I went to the institution. And I said that I needed to go somewhere to get help. I said that I’d never felt this way before, and I need to go somewhere. And I was told that I couldn’t, because it wouldn’t be good for the institution.”

Reacting to the clip live on air, Piers said he “[doesn’t] believe a word [Meghan] says”, adding: “I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report, and the fact that she’s fired up this onslaught against our Royal Family, I think, is contemptible.”

It was later revealed that this had become the most complained-about incident in Ofcom history, with the watchdog receiving over 57,000 complaints.

However, six months later, the media regulator has said that while Piers’ comments were “potentially harmful and offensive”, they did not violate their code.

“This was a finely-balanced decision,” an Ofcom rep said on Wednesday morning. “Mr Morgan’s comments were potentially harmful and offensive to viewers, and we recognise the strong public reaction to them.

“But we also took full account of freedom of expression. Under our rules, broadcasters can include controversial opinions as part of legitimate debate in the public interest, and the strong challenge to Mr Morgan from other contributors provided important context for viewers.”

*Congrats Piers, .. I agreed with what he said then and now.


  1. Stella, ur love for this Piers tho.

    I like him shah. So Blunt a guy

  2. The family is moving abi has moved beyond this drama. Piers abi pear should respect himself if he goes back on the show.

    1. They have moved on, i think.
      They should not keep over flogging this issue and allow Meghan to rest.
      Me still thinking what said about Opera using them is true.

  3. Of course,you would. It is well.

  4. Piers was 100% right. Meghan is only at separating herself from family and that’s what she’s doing to Harry. She’s not done…she’s making Harry write a damning tell all book about the royals expected to be out next year. She won’t rest until she’s totally and unrepairably distroyed Harry’s relationship with the English royals. May God not bring a Meghan Markle into our lives. Amen.

    1. Anon 19:31, you are a fool!!!

    2. I say AMEN!!!!!
      Thank goodness for Piers Morgan, looking forward to watching him.

  5. I am so happy with this judgement. Anyone who opposes/criticizes her and her blind supporters are labeled as racist. It simply irritates me!!!

    1. Are you minding the blind supporters?
      I am super happy with the judgement tooπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ
