The weather presenter told Piers that Meghan Markle is "entitled to cut [him] off if she wants to."

Beresford added that Piers Morgan continues to "trash" Meghan after she cut him off. Morgan then proceeded to storm off the live GMB set.

However, in his latest column for the Mail Online, Morgan admitted that he regrets storming off set, after discussing the situation with friends Mark Austin and Gary Lineker over lunch.

Morgan wrote in his Mail Online column: "'Before we start,' said Gary, 'and at the risk of you storming out, I just want to say that I completely believe Meghan Markle.'"

He continued, recalling the conversation: "'Me too,' declared Austin, solemnly. 'Even about the stuff that’s now been proven to be untrue.'

"'You shouldn’t have walked off set,' Gary scolded, more seriously."

Morgan wrote that he replied: "I know. But we've all done things we regret on live TV."

Morgan received thousands of Ofcom complaints after repeatedly saying that he did not believe Meghan Markle, who expressed experiencing suicidal thoughts during her time as a senior member of the Royal family.

The mental health charity, Mind, said it was "concerned" to see Piers Morgan's comments pertaining to Meghan Markle's mental health.

Morgan then attempted to clarify his comments made about the Duchess of Sussex.

Speaking on GMB, he said: "On mental illness and suicide, these are clearly extremely serious things and should be taken extremely seriously. And, if someone is feeling that way, they should get the treatment and the help that they need every time.

"If they belong to an institution, like the Royal Family, and they go and seek that help, they should absolutely be given it."
