Are Alex Beresford and Piers Morgan feuding?
PIERS Morgan and Alex Beresford were embroiled in a feud on this morning's GMB (March 9).
The pair have been locked in a war of words over their take on Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah.
Why are Alex Beresford and Piers Morgan feuding?
Piers has long been an outspoken critic of Meghan's, and was outraged by the revelations made in the interview.
Following the interview's release, Morgan said on GMB: "I’m angry to the point of boiling over. I’m sickened by what I’ve just seen.
"This is a two-hour 'trashathon' of our Royal Family, the monarchy and everything the Queen has worked hard for, done while Prince Philip lies in hospital.
"They basically make out they are a bunch of white supremacists
by dropping a racist bombshell."
Piers also queried many of Meghan's claims, including her mental health struggles.
He said: "Who did you go to? What did they say to you?
"I don't believe a word she says, Meghan Markle. I wouldn't believe a weather report if she read it.
"The fact she has expressed an onslaught against our Royal Family is contemptible."
What did Alex Beresford say about Piers Morgan?
Alex Beresford has criticised Piers' take on the ordeal.
And the pair were at loggerheads on GMB this morning (March 9, 2021) following the airing of the interview the night before.
Alex was responding Piers' claims that he used to talk to Meghan and she "dropped him" once she started dating Prince Harry.
He said: "I understand that you don't like Meghan Markle, you've made it so clear a number of times on this programme, and I understand you've got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle and she cut you off."
He told Morgan: "She’s entitled to cut you off if she wants to."
This prompted a dramatic exit from Piers, who stormed off the set.
Alex called it "'pathetic", and "diabolical behaviour".
Alex told viewers: "I'm sorry but Piers spouts off on a regular basis and we all have to sit there and listen, 6.30 to 7 o' clock yesterday was incredibly hard to watch, incredibly hard to watch, this is, you know he has the ability to come in here and talk from a position where he doesn't fully understand."
The show then went on a break, but when the adverts had ended the presenters seemed to have cooled off, and had a more measured conversation about the issue.
Alex said of Meghan and Harry: "They have had an overwhelming amount of negative press.
"I watched it again yesterday and yes they had some great press around the wedding, but everything that has followed since has been damaging to Meghan’s mental health"
He reasoned with the Piers: "I’m not coming on this show to try and tear you down,
"I also want you to be aware of the power of your words", Alex told him.
