The former Good Morning Britain host sparked a huge backlash earlier this month for saying he didn’t believe the Duchess of Sussex in her Oprah interview.

Now, Jason has shared his thoughts on Twitter and said he didn’t agree with Piers’ comments.

Comedian Jason replied: “I always think it’s a good idea to read all sides.

“I don’t agree with Piers over the Meghan thing at all, think he was out of order.

“But when he quit GMB, nobody cheered more than the politicians who no longer have anyone to ask the hard questions.”

Piers then responded: “Fair enough… I respect your right to have a different opinion to me.”

The presenter recently opened up about his departure from GMB and took aim at former colleague Alex Beresford.

Alex and Piers had clashed on the programme days after Meghan and Prince Harry’s Oprah interview.

The spat resulted in Piers storming off set to calm down.

What did Piers say?

Piers accused weatherman Alex of ‘trying to make name for himself’ during their onscreen row.

He admitted feeling “tired and agitated” the day of their clash, and added that Alex also seemed “uptight”.

Piers wrote: “As [Alex] delivered his censorious lecture, implying my only motivation for disbelieving Ms Markle’s outlandish interview claims was because she ‘ghosted’ me four years ago after we’d been friendly for 18 months – I genuinely couldn’t care less about that, but it was informative as to her character, especially when I saw her do the same thing to many other people, including her own father – I felt the steam rising inside me.”

He added: “I don’t mind outside guests trying to make a name for themselves by whacking me like this, but I wasn’t going to sit there and take it from one of my own team, especially someone who I’ve gone out of my way to help whenever he’s asked me for advice about his career.
