Piers Morgan believes Meghan Markle celebrated him quitting Good Morning Britain

Piers Morgan believes Meghan Markle celebrated his exit from Good Morning Britain.

Rubbing the salt in, Piers, 56, explained that he had "never been more popular" following his departure.

The newsreader handed in his notice following and almighty row after he told viewers and co-stars that he didn't buy into Meghan's claims during the bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

During two episodes that were aired on 8 and 9 March, 57,121 complaints were issued to the broadcasting regulator Ofcom.

Meghan also made a formal complaint to the watchdog, expressing her concern for those who may be attempting to deal with mental health.

And if Piers' new column in the Daily Mail is anything to go by, it would seem the dust between him and Meghan is far from settled.

The Life Stories star penned: "Well I am sure she had a wonderful, joyous series of venti latte celebrations or crystal bashing, whatever they do over there, when she heard.

"I’m sure she did and that's fine. I've no problem with that.

He went on: "She thinks she's beaten me? She might be in for a surprise, because I suspect I'll be back soon. And my views certainly haven't changed.

"If Meghan thinks she has cancelled me or won the battle, she is in for a big shock. I've never been more popular."

Before handing in his notice on GMB, the anchorman went head-to-head with weatherman Alex Beresford, with the pair sharing very opposing views on the tell-all interview.

This resulted in Piers storming off set, leaving his co-star Susanna Reid with Alex who wasn't best pleased with their brief exchange.

It later materialised that the TV star had been asked by ITV chiefs to apologise but he refused siting "freedom of speech" as his defence for airing his opinion.

Remaining defiant on his position, Piers added: "There was absolutely not a cat’s chance of me apologising. What am I apologising for?

"I don’t believe a word that comes out of Meghan’s mouth. It all comes down to freedom of speech.

"I should have the right not to believe a public figure when they're making clearly very inflammatory — and as we now know, very disingenuous — allegations about people who have no right of reply."
