Piers Morgan has revealed a private text Susanna Reid sent him after he called his “TV wife” after their “sudden divorce.” The presenters hosted Good Morning Britain together for nearly five years before the partnership ended abruptly.
It’s well-documented that Pierce’s exit from ITV News came after he received a massive backlash over comments he made about the Duchess of Sussex after her explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Then, on the next day’s episode of GMB in March 2021, Pierce got involved in a heated debate after he refused to believe Meghan Markle’s claims. Alex Beresford, the show’s weatherman, confronted Pierce over his comments about the Duchess of Sussex and the controversy, with Alex telling Pierce that his behavior towards Meghan was ‘totally diabolical’, causing Pierce to break into the group.

Hours later, his exit from the ITV news program was announced, and the controversial journalist and presenter celebrated the anniversary of his withdrawal from the ITV news program last month.
Pierce has now said his departure from ITV over comments about the Duchess of Sussex was a “farce” as he prepares to launch a modernized news channel, TalkTV. The channel will launch with shows from Pierce, Sharon Osborne and Tom Newton Dunn on Monday, April 25th.
But in the run-up to the launch, the 57-year-old also commented on his relationship with former GMB host Susanna. Speaking to The Sun, Pierce said his “ex-worker” had yet to wish him well. “There’s still time,” he said, “I’m sure she will.”
“It’s tough. You know, we had this arranged marriage that turned out to be very successful. And then all of a sudden we broke up one afternoon. That was it. So we keep in touch through texts and stuff but it was all a bit exciting. And sad.”
Susanna apparently received the message as Pierce shared a screenshot of the WhatsApp message she sent him on Twitter. Besides, Pierce wrote: “Breaking news,” where the letter simply read: “Good luck.”
Susanna then retweeted Pierce’s tweet to her hundreds of thousands of followers, but did not comment afterwards. However, it seemed that it did not matter to Pierre’s followers because they quickly discovered something else that they quickly wanted to answer.
David_Waddell tweeted: “Susanna Reid is typing….can’t wait to see what she said next!”
“What did you write next?” @Dulz__83 asked.
@Stricky341 joked: “piersmorgan was still writing, is the following message ‘wrong number sorry?'” “
“Just because you asked for it,” @BeingManiV shared, referring to Pierce’s interview comments.
But that wasn’t the only problem as the others discovered something they desperately wanted to iron out.
_holtygirl asked: “How on earth do you have 101 unread WhatsApp messages?”
@sarah_Thorne29 replied: “101 more messages!!!!!!This is causing me concern.”
@Stephan51472773 said: “All I see in this picture is 101 unread messages. The docks are fixing this now!”
“Never mind that Piers… open those other 101 letters,” HuntedMarc commented.
