Jeremy Clarkson has a strong history with his rival Piers Morgan since he punched him in the face at an awards ceremony in 2004. Since then, Morgan has appeared on The Grand Tour presenter’s quiz show, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, and they seem to have put their differences behind them as they joked with each other on the show.
Clarkson has now weighed in on Morgan’s leaving of Good Morning Britain after the host stormed out following an Oprah Winfrey interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Morgan suggested that Markle was lying in the interview, and after starting a debate with co-presenter Alex Beresford, he stormed off the show and quit soon after.
Clarkson commented on what happened in a recent column with The Sun, saying that Markle is “much revered by the young and the stupid who believe that her brand of simpering victimhood will one day bring down the monarchy, but it won’t”.
But with the royal family having its fair share of drama in the past, such as “beheadings, affairs, abdications”, Clarkson is “fairly sure it’ll be able to weather the banal musings of a silly little cable TV actress”.
