Piers left Good Morning Britain back in March.

It came after a backlash over his comments about Harry and Meghan Markle’s Oprah Winfrey interview.

The star had said he didn’t believe a word Meghan had said, after she opened up about feeling suicidal and claimed she didn’t recieve help from the palace.

After his departure, Susanna delivered a message on air saying he was “without doubt an outspoken, challenging, opinionated, disruptive broadcaster”.

She added: “It is certainly going to be very different but shows go on and so on we go.”

He wrote in his Daily Mail column: “I got an instant flurry of new texts from bemused friends asking if we’d fallen out.”
