What has Piers Morgan said about his new show?

In a clip advertising the show, Morgan can be seen watching footage of him storming off the set of Good Morning Britain last year, as he says he was “forced to leave a job that I loved at the peak of its success, for having the audacity to express an honestly held opinion.

“This shouldn’t happen in any democracy supposedly built on the principles of free speech and freedom of expression.”

He added: “So I’m delighted to now be returning to live television with a new prime-time show, whose main purpose will be to cancel the cancel culture which has infected societies around the world.

“I want it to be a platform for lively, vigorous debate, newsmaking interviews and that increasingly taboo three-letter word – fun.

“I also want it to annoy all the right people.”

Why did Piers Morgan leave Good Morning Britain?

Morgan left ITV in March 2021 following a row over the comments he made about the Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Discussing the interview on the ITV show the following day, Morgan said he did not believe Meghan’s claims.
