The former Good Morning Britain star’s future still remains uncertain after he walked off of the ITV show during a live broadcast. Some have speculated he could join the new TV channel GB News, which launches later this year, or return to Rupert Murdoch’s media empire. Piers fanned the flames of an alleged “£10million bidding war” by stating “Only 10?” on Twitter.

The 56-year-old stormed off GMB’s set after he was called out by weather reporter Alex Beresford for “continuing to trash” Meghan. 

The TV star said he didn’t believe the Duchess when she admitted having considered suicide, her struggles with mental health and clashes with the royals.

The heartbreaking comments emerged during the Sussexes’ tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in February.

Since Piers left GMB, he has refused to relent in her verbal lashings of Meghan and Harry. 

During his first interview after leaving the ITV show, he told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that he felt pressured to believe the Duchess.

He added: “I was told that you have got to believe Meghan Markle and if you do not believe what she is saying, you are a racist.

Today, Piers sensationally claimed to have received “some messages” from “several members of the Royal Family” praising him for his work.

He told Extra that he was “not going to go into who it was” but claimed the note was of “gratitude” because “somebody was standing up”.

Piers claimed there were “many attempts” to “cancel me” after regularly making comments about Meghan. 

He boldly stated: “Somehow I remain resolutely uncancelled.”

The journalist revealed he walked away from GMB after bosses “required” him to “apologise for disbelieving” the Duchess’ remarks about her mental health.

He said he still “didn’t believe” Meghan and added: “I believe, which is ironic, that you should not believe somebody if you don’t want to.”

Piers claimed to have been attacked by “so-called liberal” trolls since his commentary on Meghan’s admissions. 

He believed it was “clear” that the Duchess “was trying to put huge pressure on my bosses to take action against me”.

The firebrand host blamed “the woke brigade” on his departure and felt “cancel culture” was dangerous for society.

In October, he told BBC Radio 4’s Media Show that the nation had “lost the ability to have any kind of democratic debate”.

Piers feared that “any kind of common sense” had been discarded and instead was replaced by “cancel culture”. 

He believed “a small group of noisy people on social media” wanted to “dictate how everybody leads their lives”.

Piers listed examples including “what they find funny” in reference to cancelled TV shows and movies and what is “deemed acceptable” in speech and behaviour.

The journalist feared we would “end up in an incredibly boring, very controlled world” if the “woke brigade” got their way.

He argued that censoring and dictating what is and is not allowed to be said was the definition of “fascism”.

Piers continued: “Ironically it ends up becoming a form of the very fascism, which liberals have always professed to detest in their right-wing opponents.”

The BBC’s Media Editor Amol Rajan asked him to clarify what he meant by “fascism” due to it being a “very strong word” but the TV star doubled-down.

He explained: “Liberalism… is supposed to be about fairness and equality but essentially is about freedom of speech.

“There’s nothing about what’s been going on in the last year with ‘wokery’ that in any way lives up to the banner of freedom of speech.”

Piers argued that “woke cancel culture” was “the enemy of freedom of speech” because it sought to control people.

He claimed the “woke brigade” had “hijacked the term ‘woke’”, which he claimed referred to people “standing up for social and racial injustice”.

Piers concluded: “But it’s become an all-encompassing umbrella to censor people and to stop them actually leading the lives they want to lead.”
