Many viewers shared their thoughts on Piers’ exit from Good Morning Britain on the petition.

One person said: “He is the reason I watch GMB, I won’t be watching it without him, as it will be left with just the snowflakes!”

Another wrote: “Piers is brilliant at his job. I only watch GMB when he’s on.”

What did fans say?

One added: “His job is to provoke thought and comment.

“He is also entitled to his opinion, doesn’t mean he’s right, but he must be allowed to express his opinion. Mistake to lose him.”

Meanwhile, Piers recently thanked his former GMB colleagues following his last five years on the show.

He wrote on Twitter alongside a group photo of some of the hosts and crew members: “They don’t all agree with me, some don’t even like me.

“But we were a team..and we won. Thanks guys. I’ll miss you.”

It came after Ofcom received over 41,000 complaints over Piers’ comments about Meghan Markle’s revelations during her Oprah interview.

On Tuesday, Piers clashed with co-star Alex Beresford after the weatherman called him out over his Meghan remarks.

The spat resulted in Piers walking off set.

Piers made his comments about Meghan on Monday’s show after watching her and Prince Harry’s interview.

During the interview, Meghan said she was suicidal while pregnant with Archie and claimed there were ‘concerns and conversations’ about how dark Archie’s skin colour might be when he was born within the royal family.
