Piers Morgan has exposed a private text sent to him by Susanna Reid after he called out his ‘TV wife’ after their ‘sudden divorce’. The presenters hosted Good Morning Britain together for almost five years before the partnership came to an abrupt end.
It’s well documented that Piers’ exit on the ITV news program came after he received a huge backlash to comments he made about the Duchess of Sussex following her explosive, tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Then, on the following day’s episode of GMB back in March 2021, Piers became embroiled in a heated debate after he refused to believe claims made by Meghan Markle. The show’s weatherman Alex Beresford confronted Piers over his comments about the Duchess of Sussex and the row, in which Alex told Piers his behavior towards Meghan was ‘absolutely diabolical’, caused Piers to storm off the set.

Hours later, his exit from the ITV news program was announced and the controversial journalist and presenter marked the anniversary of his storm-out on the ITV news program last month.
Piers has now said his departure from ITV over comments about the Duchess of Sussex was a “farce” as he prepares to launch fledgling news channel TalkTV. The channel will launch with shows from Piers, Sharon Osbourne, and Tom Newton Dunn on Monday, April 25.
But in the lead up to the launch, the 57-year-old has also commented on his relationship with his former GMB co-host Susanna. Speaking to The Sun, Piers said that his former “work wife” was yet to wish him luck. “There’s still time, I’m sure she will,” he said.
“It’s difficult. You know, we had this arranged marriage that turned out to be very successful. And then we suddenly got divorced one afternoon. That was it. So we stay in touch through texting and stuff but it was all a bit dramatic and sad.”
And it seems Susanna got the message as Piers shared a screenshot of the WhatsApp message she had sent him on Twitter. Alongside it, Piers wrote: “BREAKING NEWS,” as the message simply read: “Good luck.”
Susanna then retweeted Piers’ tweet to her own hundreds of thousands of followers but didn’t comment any further. However, that appeared to be of no interest to Pier’s followers as they quickly wanted to spotted something else they quickly the answer to.
@David_Waddell tweeted: “Susanna Reid typing…. Itching to know what she said next!”
“What did she type next?” @Dulz__83 asked.
@Stricky341 joked: “@piersmorgan She was still typing, was the following message “sorry wrong number”?”
“Next message ‘Only because you asked for it’,” @BeingManiV shared referring to Piers’ interview comments.
But that wasn’t the only problem as others spotted something they desperately wanted sorting out.
@_holtygirl asked: “How on earth do you have 101 unread WhatsApp messages?”
“101 other messages!!!!!! That gives me anxiety,” @sarah_Thorne29 replied.
@Stephan51472773 pleaded: “All I see in this photo is the 101 unread messages. Piers fix this now!”
“Never mind that Piers… Open those other 101 messages,” @HuntedMarc commented.
