"Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain," the channel said in a statement. "ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add."
The former Daily Mirror editor and CNN presenter walked out in the middle of Tuesday morning's programme after GMB weatherman Alex Beresford accused him of harbouring a personal grudge against the Duchess of Sussex.

Morgan earlier tweeted a clip of himself on the programme explaining his scepticism of Markle's claim that members of the royal household told her she could not seek psychiatric help after feeling suicidal.
