‘It’s been a struggle.’ Piers Morgan’s wife discusses her husband’s departure from GMB.
Celia Walden, PIERS MORGAN’S wife, has opened out about her life with the former Good Morning Britain host since he famously departed the show in March.
Celia Walden appeared on Thursday’s Good Morning Britain, where she chatted with hosts Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard about the Ofcom judgment, which ruled Piers Morgan had not broken any rules during an explosive GMB fight about Meghan Markle ahead of his departure from the morning show on Wednesday. Celia, a novelist, stated that, while she and her husband don’t fight frequently, life at home has been difficult since Piers left the show.
“It’s been a challenge,” Celia admitted when asked if tensions had grown since Piers left and the couple was forced to spend more time together.
“We don’t actually argue because we’re too busy in our own worlds,” she explained.
“He used to put so much effort into the show that by the time he got home, he was prostrate on the sofa.”
Celia revealed that the two have struggled a little more since his departure from GMB.
Celia later claimed that on the day Piers left Good Morning Britain, she was blissfully unaware of the on-screen dispute for a time.
Celia had been out when Piers famously stormed off after a tense disagreement with co-star Alex Beresford about Meghan Markle’s explosive Oprah Winfrey interview, and she arrived home to find out the consequences.
“I remember I was in the gym and when I got home, everything exploded,” she explained to Susanna.
She said that it had been “a major thing” and that a large number of people had begun to gather outside the family house.
Pier’s outburst, which resulted in more than 57,000 complaints flooding ITV, was determined to be an acceptable example of freedom of speech by Ofcom on Wednesday.
“Mr Morgan was right to declare he disbelieved the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s charges and to have and express strong opinions that critically disputed their story, consistent with freedom of expression,” the watchdog found.
“The code permits individuals to express passionately held and well-reasoned opinions, including those that are potentially damaging or highly offending, and broadcasters to include these opinions in their programs.
“Limitation of such ideas, in our opinion, would be an unjustified and stifling restriction on both the broadcaster’s and the audience’s freedom of expression.”
Piers seemed pleased with the outcome, according to Celia.
Piers was a presenter on GMB at the time. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
