Watch: Piers Morgan pictured with senior ITV executive - days after being cleared by Ofcom over Meghan comments on Good Morning Britain
They crossed paths just days after Ofcom said his comments about the Duchess of Sussex did not breach the broadcasting code.
The presenter was seen sitting in the same box as Mr Lygo at The Oval cricket ground in London during England’s fourth test against India on Friday.
His former co-star Susanna Reid has since confirmed Mr Morgan wouldn’t be returning to Good Morning Britain.
She told MailOnline: “He’s not left ITV – he’s still doing Life Stories. But no, he won’t be back on the GMB sofa.”
In recent days, Mr Morgan called Ofcom’s ruling a victory and joked when would he get his job back.
His comments sparked more than 50,000 complaints, the most in watchdog Ofcom’s history.
While Ofcom ruled Mr Morgan’s words were "potentially harmful and highly offensive", the regulator said GMB was not in breach of the broadcasting code because his comments were challenged by other hosts.
The judgment said: "The code allows for individuals to express strongly held and robustly argued views, including those that are potentially harmful or highly offensive, and for broadcasters to include these in their programming.
"The restriction of such views would, in our view, be an unwarranted and chilling restriction on freedom of expression both of the broadcaster and the audience."
I’m delighted OFCOM has endorsed my right to disbelieve the Duke & Duchess of Sussex’s incendiary claims to Oprah Winfrey, many of which have proven to be untrue. This is a resounding victory for free speech and a resounding defeat for Princess Pinocchios.

Mr Morgan called the decision a "landmark ruling".
Speaking outside his London home following the judgment, he said he would make a decision "quite soon" about where his next job will be.
He added: "I have had loads of offers and they have accelerated in the last 10 hours, as you can imagine, and I will take my free-speech campaign around the world and all I require is to have an employer who believes in it as passionately as I do."
Since the presenter’s departure, ITV has not hired a replacement and instead has featured a rotating cast of presenters including Adil Ray and Richard Bacon.
