Piers Morgan snipes at Meghan as he revels in number of top-ten Ofcom complaints

Piers Morgan seemed to revel in the number of Ofcom complaints made against him over the last 12 months after featuring in four of the top-ten most complained about TV moments.

He also bagged the top spot after Ofcom received 54,453 complaints against the former GMB presenter for suggesting he didn't trust Meghan Markle's account that she felt suicidal during her interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, reports The Mirror.

The 56-year-old host, has long been known to look unfavourably on Meghan with Piers staunchly criticising the Sussexes for disrespecting the Queen and the Royal Family.

Piers famously got into a heated argument with weather presenter Alex Beresford in March over the comments against Meghan causing him to storm off and eventually quitting GMB.

In his Tweet on Friday the former editor pointed out that none of the complaints had been up-held by Ofcom before referring to the Duchess of Sussex as '"Princess Pinocchio".

He also added an emoji wearing sunglasses while sharing an article that stated he held four of the top-ten complained about moments on TV in the last 12 months.

As well as the top spot Piers also claimed the sixth, seventh and 10th places after his interviews with Helen Whateley MP and Victoria Atkin MP.

He then tweeted a BBC article about the complaints, suggesting that Ofcom had seen "unprecedented" numbers of complaints with Piers attributing to a large portion of them.

Piers wrote in response: "What this doesn't say is that NONE of the Govt-related complaints against me were upheld, and I don't expect the complaints relating to Princess Pinocchio to be either. How can @Ofcom possibly conclude I must believe a proven liar…?"
