Former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan told fans that he would be back on TV “soon” following Ofcom’s decision to reject complaints against him over comments he made against Meghan Markle.
Morgan posted a photo of himself standing outside a cafe with five women, and captioned it with: “Great to meet my Yorkshire fan club this morning. Thanks for all the support, ladies! I’ll be back on TV soon, don’t worry.”
Though Morgan has joked about returning to the ITV breakfast show, his former co-host Susanna Reid said he wouldn’t be returning to the show.
Speaking outside his home last week, he claimed that he received several job offers following Ofcom’s dismissal of the complaints.
He said: “I have had loads of offers and they have accelerated in the last 10 hours, as you can imagine, and I will take my free speech campaign around the world and all I require is to have an employer who believes in it as passionately as I do.”
Morgan teased that he is considering many “interesting offers” and will “make a decision quite soon”.
Last week, he told the Daily Mail that he wouldn’t take his Good Morning Britain job back without a public apology especially as he’s “got much bigger things coming up”.
Morgan has refused to offer any details about his next TV role, only saying that it’s “exciting” and “global” and the public would hear about it “within the next few weeks”.
Back in March, Piers left the show after refusing to apologise for saying he “didn’t believe a word” of what Meghan told Oprah Winfrey during their explosive interview.
Meghan said that her mental health was poor while living as a royal in the UK and dealing with the tabloid press but did not receive any help from Buckingham Palace.
ITV’s boss Dame Carolyn McCall reportedly ordered him to apologise but he said he wouldn’t because it was an “honestly held opinion about that diatribe of bilge that she came out with”.
Morgan’s comments at the time received 41,000 complaints in 24 hours.
Ofcom explained that they cleared Morgan and Good Morning Britain of any wrongdoing as there was “public interest in having an open and frank debate” on mental health, suicide, and race.
Additionally, they stated that he was “entitled” to his opinion and to “disbelieve the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s allegations and to hold and express strong views that rigorously challenged their account”.
