Piers Morgan tweeted: ‘*ANNOUNCEMENT* Trigger warning: I’m back.. and I’m uncensored.’
In the video clip, the presenter can be seen watching footage of when he stormed off the set of Good Morning Britain last year.
He states that he was ‘forced to leave a job that I loved at the peak of its success, for having the audacity to express an honestly held opinion.
‘This shouldn’t happen in any democracy supposedly built on the principles of free speech and freedom of expression.’
Piers left the ITV show in March 2021 following a row over the comments he made about the Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The comments gained more than 50,000 complaints, the most in Ofcom’s history.
