Piers Morgan has bid a final farewell to Good Morning Britain after packing up his office.

The 55-year-old shared a picture of his possessions boxed up along with the object he said he wouldn't be taking with him - a cardboard cut out of Susanna Reid.

"Goodbye, Good Morning Britain! (I think I’ll leave the cardboard cut-out, would be a bit creepy to take that home... 🤣)," he wrote on social media.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's interview with Oprah Winfrey saw Markle share that she had experienced suicidal thoughts.

On GMB, Morgan expressed his doubts as he said: "I don't believe a word she says."

His remarks managed to break Ofcom complaint records as they racked up over 57,000 objections from viewers. The broadcasting watchdog said they had launched an investigation after 40,000 complaints were lodged.

Mental health charity Mind also said it was “disappointed and concerned” by the comments.

It isn't yet clear who could be replacing the outspoken presenter, although there have been plenty of suggestions on who could fill his shoes.

One such rumoured candidate is barrister and TV star Robert Rinder, who is a close friend of Reid's.

He recently addressed whether or not he would join the show, explaining that early morning starts and potential online abuse could put him off but that it could be "interesting".
