What did Piers say?

He continued to host Karl Stefanovic: “I don’t know if you have a deputy weather person… if you had a deputy stand in weather person suddenly letting you have it in a personal way, I suspect you wouldn’t like it either.

“I thought, ‘you know what, I will say something I will regret.’

“I don’t mind guests piling into me that’s fair game but not friendly fire from your own team, I wasn’t having that.”

The presenter said he “didn’t believe a word” the Duchess said.

During the chat, Meghan opened up about feeling suicidal during her pregnancy with Archie and claimed she didn’t receive help from the palace.

In addition, she alleged there were ‘concerns’ and ‘conversations’ within the family about Archie’s skin tone before he was born.

Thousands of viewers complained to Ofcom about Piers, and Meghan reportedly made a formal complaint to ITV.
