Whether you love him or hate him, there's no doubt that Piers Morgan was a big presence on Good Morning Britain. And - staying true to character - Piers' exit from the show was just as dramatic as his interviewing style.
The outspoken broadcaster quit the ITV breakfast show over comments he made after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's explosive Oprah Winfrey interview.
And it turns out some of Piers' colleagues have been particularly concerned for his health - in particular, Holly Willoughby. Writing in his column for the Mail Online, Piers revealed, 'Holly Willoughby was more concerned about my blood pressure from all the GMB ranting.'
'Do you meditate? she asked. No, I replied. But I did drink a ginseng latte today if you're trying to wake me up?'
Piers also told readers that Holly has encouraged him to take an 'online course to offset some of this anger.

'Holly then sent me a link to one that costs £249 for seven hours of meditation technique training live-broadcasted to my home which would include advice on 'managing difficult situations', 'nailing interviews' and 'making hangovers less horrible'.' Sounds like you could do with some help there, Piers!
Good Morning Britain saw the BBC receive more than 41,000 complaints about his remarks on Meghan Markle, dismissing her mental health issues. When challenged by fellow presenter Alex Beresford, Piers stormed off set in a fit of range.
Piers is set to do a tell-all interview this evening with FOX's Tucker Carlson. The interview will focus on his sudden departure from GMB as well as his issues with Meghan. He tweeted earlier today, writing, '*TODAY* My first TV interview since that rather abrupt departure from . It's time America got the actual truth....' We're sure he'll have plenty to say on the matter...
