Former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan has reignited his feud with Alex Beresford after their famous falling out 2 years ago when Piers quit the morning TV show.
Piers, 58, has lashed out and called the former Good Morning Britain weather presenter a “treacherous little p***k” in a BBC interview with Amol Rajan, where he recalled the argument and explained why he stormed off.
The initial feud began when GMB star Alex openly criticised Piers’ comments on the interview that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did with Oprah Winfrey.
During the heated debate, Alex said: "I understand that you don't like Meghan Markle, you have made it so clear a number of times on this programme."
He continued: "I understand that you had a personal relationship with Meghan Markle and she cut you off, she's entitled to cut you off if she wants to.
"Has she said anything about you since she cut you off? I don't think she has, but you continue to trash her…" before Piers cut him off.
Piers then stood up and said: “Okay, I'm done with this. No, sorry, see you later," as he walked off set.
Piers walked off for 20 minutes and after he returned, he told Alex: “You were launching to a pretty personal derogatory monologue at one of your colleagues.”
Alex told Piers at the time that he wasn’t trying to “take you down" or "tear you apart”, but said: “Just because we're on the same side doesn't mean we have to have the same view.”
Now, in the new interview, Piers revealed that he walked out so that he wouldn’t lose his temper on live TV.
The Piers Morgan Uncensored presenter said: “I don't mind a guest doing that but I do object to someone who had asked to come on the show, who was on the team, who then makes a very personal attack on me.
“And so at that moment I thought there are two things that are going to happen here.
“Either I’m going to lose my rag and do something I regret – or I’m going to go and walk off.”
Piers said that he doesn’t know what he would have done if he didn’t walk off and that he doesn’t “like to think about” it.
He continued: “Just for the record, I think he was a treacherous little p***k.
Piers quit Good Morning Britain after presenting the show for 6 years and now presents Uncensored on on TalkTV.
The new interview with BBC’s Amol Rajan airs tonight 7pm on BBC Two.
