    Last year's move by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to step away from senior roles in the British Royal Family was informally branded "Megxit". Now, UK TV host Piers Morgan quitting the show Good Morning Britain in the aftermath of his comments on Markle could end up seeing a similar moniker being created given the hype around his decision.

    Whether it ends up being "Pierxit" or "Morgxit", the show "Good Morning Britain" (GMB) has continued broadcasting with British TV presenter Ranvir Singh standing in for Morgan.

    ​The show, however, hasn't announced who will be replacing Morgan as the co-host for his now ex-colleague Susanna Reid. Commentators on social media have come up with a few ideas as to who the next "GMB" host could be.

    ​Some suggested that Alex Beresford, the co-host on the show, whose comments in defence of Meghan Markle saw Morgan spiralling out of control and out of the studio, should become the new "GMB" presenter.

    ​Others were keen to see former US President Donald Trump or the leader of the Reform UK party Nigel Farage present the morning show for the British public.

    ​Jeremy Clarkson, former host of the motoring programme Top Gear, who was fired by the BBC after he punched one of the show's producers for not bringing him a steak, has also been nominated to replace Piers Morgan. 

    Clarkson aimed a jibe at the "people of America" in a tweet referring to Morgan being "sent back" to the UK following an unsuccessful attempt to break into the US show business market and the UK triumphing in the end by "sending" Meghan and Harry to California in return.

    Speaking in the aftermath of his exit from "GMB", Morgan said he still didn't believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview, even after reflecting on his opinion.
