In a revealing interview about Piers Morgan’s rollercoaster career and his personal life, Amol Rajan explores everything from hacking allegations to the divisive media figure’s belief in God.
From sackings to superstardom, from being punched by Jeremy Clarkson to his role in the culture wars, Morgan reveals the emotional and physical scars he has picked up over the decades.
During the in-depth interview, Morgan relives his walkout from Good Morning Britain, shares his side of the story about his departure from the show, and answers the suggestion he is obsessed with Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex. Morgan is also forthright about what he thinks about Prince Harry.
His tales of life as a tabloid editor at both the News of the World and the Mirror reveal the access to power and privilege he enjoyed. The interview also offers a rare insight into Morgan’s personal life, as he talks openly about his friends and family.
Rajan’s most probing questions come during a sequence on phone hacking, with Morgan discussing what he knew about what was going on at The Mirror during his tenure.
