Piers Morgan slams GMB guest for ‘unhinged’ swipe in Prince Harry row ahead of show return

Piers Morgan, 54, was less than impressed to find he had been insulted on Good Morning Britain today after returning to the UK from his holiday just this morning. The presenter fumed on Twitter when he heard that one of the ITV show’s guests, journalist Ayesha Hazarika, had called him an “unhinged troll” on the programme in reference to his comments about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Ayesha hosted the Travalyst Ecotourism conference in Edinburgh alongside the Duke of Sussex earlier this week.

Piers is set to return to GMB to co-host with Susanna Reid next Monday.

In view of his 7.1 million followers, Piers wrote: “Back in Blighty for 20 minutes & just heard royal sycophant @ayeshahazarika calling me an unhinged troll on @GMB. Charming. 

“I wonder how much Ayesha got paid to host the travel event where she got to fangirl Prince ‘private jet’ Harry as he preached about the environment?”

Twitter users took to the comments section of Piers’ post to share their thoughts.

One person wrote: “Yeah I saw that. Shame that calling out hypocrisy and speaking some sense can now be seen as trolling.”

Another added: “@susannareid100 had your back though, see you Monday.”

However, others sided with Ayesha, with one fan commenting: “Can you give Meghan and Harry a rest? Why do you like bullying them so much? Not nice at all.”


Piers’ comments about Ayesha come after he slammed Prince Harry for choosing to fly to the UK to discuss the environment at the Travalyst conference.

Harry recently announced his partnership with the eco-friendly firm by sharing plans for a “scoring system” which allows users to track their carbon emissions.

He flew to Britain from Canada on a commercial flight for the event and arrived in Edinburgh on an eco-friendly LNER train from London King’s Cross station last night, with taxpayer-funded Scotland Yard bodyguards.

Piers questioned the Prince’s move by tweeting: “Why did he fly across the Atlantic to say this when he could have said it via Skype?”

“He flew across the Atlantic to tell us not to fly across the Atlantic,” a Twitter user remarked in response.

Another person commented: “What’s his carbon emission score I wonder?”

While a third person added: “Yes Skype would have been a great idea.”

Harry explained his initiative at the conference by saying: “I want to help create a platform where all of us concerned about these issues can work together, where competitors can unite and incentivise a positive systemic change.

“There’s a reason why this hasn’t been tried before, but with our partners we have the best shot.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex previously came under fire for their use of private jets last summer.

Piers was one of their most vocal critics in regards to this situation after the couple had spoken out about environmental issues.

Last year, Piers tweeted: “Jeez… these two ‘eco-warriors’ are something else. Beyond parody.”

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
