PIERS Morgan dramatically STORMED OFF Good Morning Britain after he was slammed by co-star Alex Beresford following their Meghan Markle clash.
Alex spoke calmly about his view on the royals' bombshell Oprah interview, and criticised 55-year-old Piers for his coverage on the breakfast show yesterday.
But Piers refused to listen, eventually snapping and saying: "I'm not having this" as he left the set.
Alex continued speaking, and when he finished his piece co-host Susanna Reid said that everybody needed a "break", as the show cut to advertisements.
When the show returned, Charlotte Hawkins took over – welcoming viewers back as though nothing had happened while Alex, Susanna, and Piers remained off-screen.
Yesterday, 40-year-old Alex took to his Twitter page to publicly slam Piers for the way he spoke about Meghan and Harry on the show.
Piers accused Meghan of LYING about suffering with her mental health and having suicidal thoughts, as he continued to lash out at her and Harry for "whining".
He was widely criticised for the comments by viewers, who have since launched a petition to get him axed from the show.
Mental health charity Mind also released a statement slamming him for his dismissal of Meghan's struggles.
He returned to the set almost 20 minutes later, where he slammed Alex for "launching a personal derogatory attack" on his colleague.
Piers said: "What we need to do is talk about it in a civilised manner, considering we work on the same show on the same team."
Alex insisted that he "respected" his co-star as he said that he isn't accusing Piers of being racist.
He revealed that the reason he was so upset with comments made on the Oprah show were because he'd been asked a similar question about what his unborn child's skin tone would be.
Alex said that a work colleague, not from Good Morning Britain, had asked "what shade of cocoa he was going to come out", adding: "When you're mixed race people say things to you they wouldn't say to a black person."
He went on to urge Piers to be "aware of the power of his words", adding: "I feel because of your previous relationship with Meghan Markle – "
But furious Piers cut him off as he tried to distinguish between the question about skin tone being asked as a "passing comment" or in a "derogatory way".
Susanna desperately attempted to diffuse the two men, repeatedly asking for them to discuss this later.
