Ben Shepherd has said he has ‘no doubt’ that Piers Morgan will return to Good Morning Britain after he quit following the row over his comments about Meghan Markle.
Piers left the show after 50,000 people, including Meghan Markle herself, complained about his comments about the Duchess of Sussex.
He said he didn’t believe she was refused help from the Royal Family when she said she’d suffered from suicidal thoughts.
Piers was told to apologise or leave and he quit the show just days later.
Speaking to The Mirror at the TRIC Awards, Ben said: “I don’t doubt at some point Piers will make a reappearance.”

GMB showbiz correspondent Richard Arnold joked: “I hope he comes and picks up his picture of the Dalai Lama, he’s left that in my dressing room.”
The show has been hit by claims that it’s turned boring since Piers left, buy Ben defended it,
Ben said: “The show is carrying on, like we always say, the show was on way before all of us started on ITV breakfast.
“The show will be there way beyond all of us when we decide to leave, when we do decide to leave.
“The people putting the show together and making it for a very passionate audience that still love watching it as far as we know.”
Charlotte Hawkins also praised the show’s stylists, as they had to make do without them during lockdown.
She told us: “During the height of the restrictions, we can’t have as many people in the studio, its times like that you realise you’re basically useless without them.
“I did manage to go into the studio and not realise until the end of the show I was wearing mismatched shoes.
“Apparently I can’t even dress myself without assistance.
“Quite frankly i’m amazed i made it through.”
